…Will they? Won’t they? Well… the grapevine insists tha, yes, AliA and RAnbiR are next in line to get married. Sumita Chakraborty finds out whether it’s any time soon.
It’s raining weddings in Tinsel Town. And, how! Just when we’ve settled down after the shor sharaba of Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s ‘Big Fat Punjabi Wedding’ in June this year, the buzz has already started about the Padmavaat lovebirds - Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh’s soon to happen romantic wedding at Lake Como in Italy. Of course, in between the excitement of Neha and Angad Bedi’s ‘shotgun’ wedding too occupied quite a lot of ream ‘n’ ink. And now, guess what, if the gossipmongers are to be believed Bollywood cutest romantic jodi Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt too, are also planning to walk down the aisle. In fact, according to our source, “The Brahmastra couple is definitely head-over-heels in love with each other. And they do want to take their relationship further.”
Indeed, Ranbir had recently confessed openly about his relationship with Alia, saying, “It’s something beautiful, sacred and really important,” Alia, on the other hand, said it amazingly well with just, “I’m not single.”
No wonder, the telly tattlers of Bollywood went berserk putting their bets on ‘Ra-Lia” being the next couple to race down the aisle.
At 36, more so being a Punjabi ‘Kapoor’ munda, Ranbir is a bit of late bloomer in terms of marriage. In fact, his father Rishi Kapoor had emotionally stated last year, “It is high time he got married. I settled down when I was 27, Ranbir is 35. So he should think about marriage. He can marry anyone of his choice; we don’t have any objection to it. I want to spend time with my grandchildren before I am gone.” Adding, “I haven’t been vocal about it, but my wife keeps bringing it up with him and he just brushes the question away. Whenever he is ready for it, we will be happy. Our happiness lies in his happiness, after all.”
But perhaps his father’s fervent plea did not fall on deaf ears, for Ranbir Kapoor when asked when he would be tying the knot said, “Hopefully soon enough.” So obviously, the Jagga Jasoos super actor is now ready to make a commitment though he does add that marriage is something that he should naturally feel to commit to and not because he was getting older.
Fair enough, but is Alia at the age of 25 ready to make the same commitment? In fact in the current scenario, with her strong performances and high voltage talent, Alia has emerged as one of the topmost contenders for the Number one position for an actress in Bollywood. Most actresses in her position would think of marriage as hara-kiri but not the devil may care Alia Bhatt. When asked about her marriage plans, the Raazi stunner flashed a ‘butter wont melt’ smile, and stumped the world by saying, “I am not someone who plans out of life thinking, ‘Well, that’s how it should be done.’ I feel the best things in life should happen when they are least expected. Maybe, people expect me to get married at 30, but I might surprise myself as well and get married before that.”
…That ‘tell all’ statement says more or less everything about the thumping state of affairs in Alia’s heart right? …Do remember that this is the same gal who confidently announced to the world ‘n’ sundry on the Big Daddy of Bollywood, KJo’s show Koffee with Karan that she wanted to marry Ranbir Kapoor someday. Rather prophetic, we say! …Perhaps someone up there heard this cherubic actress’ magical words, and said, “Amen!”
