Did Ranbir Kapoor Always Have a Soft Spot for Alia Bhatt?

Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor's friendship goes back a long way

So after  a very brief spell of  hide and seek Ranbir Kapoor has  confessed his  love for Alia Bhatt, albeit 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  a long 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 of them — I mean, Ranbir and Alia, not Imtiaz—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 been in the news for his relationships with Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif. A few months ago, he was even linked with Mahira Khan! One  wonders  what lies in store for Alia who has never yet confessed to any of the guys she was supposedly dating. Considering the fact that 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. Ranbir and Alia’s fans are certainly hoping that the two hot stars become a solid couple though one wonders, at least going by Bollywood’s track record, if this one will go the mile or will fizzle out after the film is over.
