“Let the paparazzi guess if papa is raazi.”- Mahesh Bhatt on Alia and Ranbir
Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor’s relationship is a trending topic in B-town. The two made their first official appearance at Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s wedding reception and ever since then had everyone talking about them. It was soon after that when Ranbir confessed his love for Alia in his interview with a leading magazine saying ‘it’s really new right now’. Despite the fact that Alia has been extremely tight-lipped about the relationship, it was recently when we papped Ranbir Kapoor bonding with girlfriend Alia and her dad Mahesh Bhatt. The trio were seen enjoying a cosy dinner and it took no time for their pictures to go viral. Soon after that, fans couldn’t stop gushing about this bonding happening between RK and Mahesh Bhatt.
When asked about the same, daddy Bhatt said in an interview, “When I saw those pics, I was like, ‘Oh, the paparazzi age is here and you have people from the outside using their premise to capture the image, because that’s what the nation is thrusting for. So, not saying more, I’d let the paparazzi guess if papa is raazi.”
On being asked if he advises Alia about her relationship, the director mentioned that it’s her life and personal choice. He said, “It’s very obvious that they are making no bones about talking to people about them being intimate. And I don’t belong to that category of parents who’d advise their children about their personal choices. Alia is an adult and it’s a matter that she has to resolve. It’s their life, their space. I respect and admire them for choosing to talk to the world when, and if, they want to do.”
When asked about Ranbir’s performance in Sanju, the veteran said, “I like and love him very much. He has got a core far deeper than what cinema space can capture. He astounded me in Sanju. After Amitabh Bachchan’s Deewar (1975), this is the first time I’ve seen an actor take charge of a character, which is iconic like Sanjay Dutt. Ranbir is barely 34 or 35 and though he comes from the great lineage of the Kapoor family, he has a unique charm and talent that’s his own. He is an original, just like Alia is an original.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Alia and Ranbir will be seen together for the first time in Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra which also stars Amitabh Bachchan.
