Though it is more than public knowledge, yet there needed to be a seal of approval. Now the seal of approval has come from papa Mahesh Bhatt. The famed director has confirmed that Alia and Ranbir Kapoor are in a relationship and that he likes Ranbir immensely. But papa Mahesh again reiterated that he is against the institution of marriage and that it holds no significance for him at all.
"Well, of course they’re in love. You don’t need to be a genius to get that! I love Ranbir… he’s a great guy. What they do to their relationship is something they’ll have to figure out. Whether it’s heading towards that port called ‘marriage’ — which is an institution that needs to be questioned in the second decade of the 21st century — is something for them to figure out," said Bhatt while talking about Ranbir and Alia to Telegraph.
Mahesh Bhatt also added that he wouldn't like to guess where the relationship is headed towards if the couple isn't thinking about marriage at this time. "I’m no one to hazard a guess when that would happen or which way the relationship is going. It’s life and life needs to be lived on its own terms. Let’s wait and see what tomorrow brings for us," Bhatt added philosophically.
