Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt first met when Alia Bhatt was just 11 years old and Ranbir Kapoor was in his twenties. This fact was made public by Alia Bhatt herself.
The duo is set to star together in Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra. Ranbir has also hinted at their relationship in one of his interviews.
However, it is not the first time Ranbir and Alia are working together, according to India TV News which also reports that they have earlier collaborated for a photo shoot and the credit goes to Sanjay Leela Bhansali. When Ranbir was assisting Bhansali, Alia who was just 11-years-old did a photo shoot with him. Alia reveals it was a shy moment for her. ''I was just 11 years old. He (Ranbir) was assisting with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and I had to do a photoshoot with him. And I was SO shy because I was asked to place my head on his shoulder. And I just could not do it. It was a really shy moment for me. But I think Ranbir has been a very great supporter of my career. He had even called me after watching Highway. But I have to say that I have always been a Ranbir loyalist since Saawariya and it has never changed,'' the Raazi actress told India Today.
Even, Ranbir has spoken about this photo shoot in his earlier interview. He jokingly revealed that Bhansali wanted to make his own version of Balika Vadhu as he was just 20 when this photo shoot was done.
