Ranbir Kapoor gave a statement about his relationship with Alia Bhatt to a men's magazine, where he 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.”
Talking about being in a new relationship, Ranbir added, “It always comes with a lot of excitement. It’s a new person, it comes with new beats. Old tricks become new tricks again–you know, being charming and romantic, all of that. I think I’m more balanced today. I value relationships more. I can appreciate hurt and what it does to a person much more than I could a couple years back.”
And ever since the interview came out, speculations about the developments on this news have been insane. From rumours of them moving in and not moving in together to Alia Bhatt meeting Ranbir's parents have kept the fans thrilled about this couple.
Recently Indian Express pinned down Alia's half sister, Pooja Bhatt for an interview at a Delhi event where she was asked about how she felt about her sister dating Ranbir Kapoor and here's how she responded:
“You got to ask Alia! You can ask me about my personal life. You cannot ask me about my sister’s personal life because I ain’t telling, darling! Like I took rumours about me. What was true didn’t bother me. What was not true didn’t bother me. And she is a Bhatt after all, and a much-improved Bhatt in that sense. I think that this is her time in the sun. We should just let that young girl be and enjoy her life because I think she is doing her job of entertaining India and the world really well. So, what she does or does not do in her personal life is really her problem. How she chooses to lead her life is her problem. My father and me have a different approach to it. She has a different approach to it. So, I think we should just let people be who they are.”
Well, shall we say, full points to the half sister for this!
