Remember your good-old school days when it was all about feeling shy when you crossed paths with your crush, last pages of notebook was meant for scribbled ‘Flame’ games and your friends teasing you with a ‘Look jiju/bhabhi is passing’ comment? And what if one day, your crush reciprocates to your feelings and ends up becoming your beau/muse? Although this sounds no less than a fairytale, but who said fairytales do not exist?

Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor are the exemplars of modern-day fairytale romance. Even before we could have imagined, things are moving steadfastly for the couple. With the Raazi star spending New Year and all major occasions with her beau, Ranbir Kapoor’s family and the latter, going out on lunch and dinner dates with Alia’s mom, we guess it will not be long before we get to see a pop-up of an official invite of Alia and Ranbir’s wedding from her Instagram profile!
The best part about this lovebird’s relationship is that both of their families love each other. To be precise, Alia Bhatt and Ranbir’s gorgeous sister, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni gel really well and if reports are to be believed, the probable nanad has gifted a pair of gold-plated rings to Ranbir and Alia. But that is not even the best part! As per reports, Riddhima has customised the love bands and have inscribed their initials, ‘AR’ (Alia-Ranbir), as a mark of affection for the duo! Yesterday (January 08, 2019), Riddhima had posted a picture of initial-inscribed gold-plated love brands on her official Instagram page. Probably, the gifted rings too, look like these:
This is not the first time when Riddhima has shown her affection towards Alia. Riddhima is a jewellery designer herself and owns her jewellery chain by the name of R Jewellery. Alia had posted an Instagram story wherein, she shared a pic of a beautiful bracelet which her ‘to-be-nanad’ had gifted her. While we will share the picture below, don’t you want to know what the star sister said about the Alia-Ranbir relationship? Sharing the same with Hindustan Times, Riddhima had shared, “Hota hi hai (It happens, the speculations). Ask him (laughs)! What can I say? I am happy if my brother is happy, and I am a very happy sister (smiles)”. And like we promised, here’s the gift that Riddhima gifted to Alia: (Must Read: Neetu Kapoor Calls Alia Bhatt And Ranbir Kapoor Her 'Heartbeats', Soni Razdan Comments On The Same)
Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor had rung in New Year 2019 with the latter’s family in New York, where Rishi Kapoor is currently undergoing his treatment. And looks like the Kapoor family loves Alia just like we do, just that the Kapoor’s have a ‘bahu’ feeling attached to it! Speaking about the same, a friend of the Kapoors informed Deccan Chronicle, “She has been welcomed into the family by everyone. So it’s not just Ranbir who loves Alia. His parents, sister and the rest of the sprawling Kapoor family adore her too. Marriage is on Ranbir’s mind for sure and he will get into it happily this time. The couple will wait until Rishi Kapoor’s recovery before discussing a date for marriage.”
Alia is one of the most promising stars of the tinsel town. With power-packed performances and amazing films in her kitty, the Raazi star is every director’s choice. Given that Kapoor bahus have given up their filmy careers post-marriage, will Alia follow suit? The source further added, “Though other Kapoor bahus like Karisma-Kareena’s mom Babita and Rishi’s wife Neetu Singh gave up their careers after marriage, theirs was a voluntary decision. Alia will continue with her thriving career.”
Around Ranbir’s birthday in September 2018, Alia-Ranbir and their respective mothers went on a dinner date. An insider told online portal BollywoodLife that the mommies were discussing about Alia and Ranbir’s marriage on Ranbir’s birthday dinner! Yes, a source revealed to the same portal, “Alia is in a great phase of her life right now. She is in love and they both are sure of each other. Marriage is certainly on the cards but it won't happen before 2020." Isn’t that amazing?
Alia herself had shared once in an interview that she wants to get married before 30. The Highway actress drops possible hints every now and then about her propinquity with Ranbir Kapoor. This is what she said in an interview, “Nothing is cast in stone, right? So, if I feel that I’m in a position where I want to take such a step, then I will. I’ve always believed that I would get married because of kids. So, if I am like, ‘This is the time I want to have my children and am also ready to have babies,’ I will get married.” (Also Read: Shibani Dandekar's Birthday Wish For Boyfriend Farhan Akhtar Speaks Volumes About Their Love)
Also, do you guys know that Ranbir’s definition of love is as romantic and sweet as the man himself! In an interview with Anupama Chopra, the Sanju star defined love and stated, “Falling in love is the greatest thing in the world. When you fall in love, everything is great. Water tastes like sherbet and you seem like you are Uma Thurman. You feel great. Who doesn’t wanna be in love?”
We totally agree with you, Ranbir! All that is needed now is an official confirmation on the same from the both of you, what say peeps?
