Fingers crossed. But certain developments have led us to believe that the adorable Alia Bhatt has succeeded in doing what no other girlfriend of Alia’s boyfriend could ever do - make Ranbir Kapoor make a firm commitment. Yes, the two are getting married! And Alia herself told this writer this just before she left for her 10-day vacation in New York where she is spending time with her future in-laws, Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh. A photograph of Alia and Ranbir with Rishi and Neetu, along with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and daughter Aaradhya has already gone viral as people can’t get enough of this Bachchan-Kapoor bonhomie. But the real focus of interest is the young pair of Ranbir and Alia and their love life.
Unfortunately, the wedding is not happening anytime soon. But yes, Alia told this writer that it would happen eventually. Ranbir’s parents Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor dote on Alia. Earlier the beautiful ladies that Ranbir dated, most notably, Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif never endeared themselves to the senior Kapoors, the way Alia seems to have done. Of course, Deepika is now close to Neetu and a few months ago, had even posted a picture with her.
However, what separates the relationship that Alia shares with Ranbir from the other relationships he has had is that Alia didn’t have to make any effort to win over Rishi Kapoor or his cautious and protective wife, Neetu. It just happened naturally. Alia is a warm and gregarious girl. She doesn’t have to try to win over people. They just love her instinctively. So it was with the Kapoors.
In a nutshell, it is great that Alia has been accepted by the entire Kapoor clan. Now that they are talking marriage and making it all official, it’s time to send up a prayer for the union to happen. Hopefully, this relationship of Ranbir will reach the altar unlike his previous bonds with Deepika and Katrina (who, many believe, he came closest to tying the knot).
On the work front, Alia and Ranbir are shooting for the much-awaited Brahmastra.
