A lot has been said about Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s relationship in the media and online ever since they made their couple debut on Sonam Kapoor’s reception. Manish Malhotra had earlier called them the “hookup of 2018” and that just added the sparks. In fact long before Alia even entered showbiz she had a massive crush on him and had expressed the desire to marry him.
Since then though their relationship has become very serious. Both the families have become involved in their public romance with Neetu Kapoor commenting not only on the Dear Zindagi star’s photos but also on her mummy Soni Razdan’s pictures. Rishi Kapoor too expressed his desire for his son to get married soon. Even Alia’s family seems to dote on Ranbir, calling him over for dinners and spending time with him.
However, all of you who thought a big Kapoor-Bhatt shaadi was on the cards sorry to burst your bubble, that ain’t happening, at least for now.
Ranbir Kapoor went on record and spoke candidly about his relationship and said, “Honestly, I am not playing hide-and-seek. I am in a happy, positive and beautiful phase of my life. But you can talk about your personal life only to a degree. Otherwise, it becomes the forerunner of your life and your work takes a back seat. There is always excitement to know about someone’s personal life. But you want to give the relationship respect so that people don’t malign it in a gossipy way. It is something beautiful, sacred and really important to you, so you want to deal with it in a nice manner.”
He went on to repeat that the relationship is very new so it would be “presumptuous to judge it.” He also complimented her work ethic and said that her energy and love for acting energizes him with zeal as well.
According to Hindustan Times, he even said that the perception everyone has of him being a casanova is actually just a perception. He’s made mistakes but done good things too but people only focus on the mistakes. He said he’s evolved and matured and aims to be a better person. He said, “I want to be a good person, I’d like to do good work, get married, have children and die happy.”
Finally he addressed the rumors about marrying Alia and said, “It’s [such rumours] all a part of show business. You make up a story, and soon, there’s another story of the first story, and so on. I have always believed that marriage is something that will happen naturally. It can’t be like, ‘Okay, I am 35 now, so it’s time to get married’. It should come to you and your partner naturally and you should both feel, ‘This is the right phase. Now, we should take this relationship to the next level’. But abhi aisi koi baat nai hai. I haven’t decided on marriage yet.”
We think this is such a good way to look at marriage, it shouldn’t happen because you’re reaching a certain age or because that’s what everyone wants of you. It should happen whenever you and your partner are ready to take the leap.
