After a very brief spell of hide and seek Ranbir Kapoor has confessed his love for Alia Bhatt, in a guarded but affectionate tone. In an interview to GQ Ranbir has said, “It’s really new right now, and I don’t want to over speak. It needs time to breathe and it needs space. As an actor, as a person, Alia is — what’s the right word? — flowing right now. When I see her work, when I see her act, even in life, what she gives is something that I’m aspiring to for myself. It’s new for us, so let it cook a bit.”
Earlier Alia would blush every time Ranbir’s name was mentioned. Her expression said it all. Mutual friends say they saw it coming for sometime time now. “When Alia was shooting for Highway, Ranbir would often drop in to meet his friend director Imtiaz Ali. The vibes between the two, Ranbir and Alia, was palpable. They looked at each other with adoring eyes. But at that point of time Alia was seeing Siddharth Malhotra while Ranbir was extricating himself from his relationship with Katrina Kaif. So the vibes with Alia were smothered but irresistible,” says a director who knows both Ranbir and Alia well.
Ranbir has a track record of breaking hearts. One wouldn’t like to make a list of the women he has dumped. But in recent times his behaviour towards Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif was hardly a reason to applaud.
One wonders what lies in store for Alia who is gentle, kind, giving and not the least calculated in her conduct. Considering the fact that the pair has lots of time to spend together as they shoot for Ranbir’s best friend Ayan Mukerjee’s Bhamhastra, the relationship has lots of space to grow and settle down. Those who know Alia and Ranbir closely are praying that Alia doesn’t get hurt in this relationship.
