Alia Bhatt has responded to rumours of a tiff between boyfriend, actor Ranbir Kapoor and her and told a leading daily that she was “definitely Valentining,” contrary to reports. Ranbir, on the eve of Valentine’s Day, watched Alia’s new film Gully Boy at a Mumbai theatre but a video in the meantime, surfaced, in which the couple were filmed by the paparazzi in their car, either before or after the film, in the midst of what appeared to be a heated discussion.
As the video went viral and was circulated vehemently around social media, reports of an altercation between Ranbir and Alia gained momentum. Turns out, it was nothing at all. “I was definitely Valentining on that day. Since I’ve been promoting Gully Boy, I had a late night and woke up late on Valentine’s Day. I was flooded with messages and greetings about our film along with some Valentine’s greetings and some marriage proposals from strangers as well,” Alia, asked about reports as such, told the daily.
Alia, indeed, had a busy schedule on Valentine’s Day considering Gully Boy released on February 14. After attending to the press following Gully Boy’s release, Alia was occupied with a promotional photoshoot with Madhuri Dixit and Sonakshi Sinha for their upcoming film Kalank. But she did manage to make time for Ranbir as she told the daily, “There was time for Ranbir also, don’t worry.”
Sure enough, Alia and Ranbir did enjoy Valentine’s Day together with a dinner date.
Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, co-stars of their upcoming film Brahmastra, confirmed their relationship to press in May 2018. Directed by Ayan Mukerji, Brahmastra will release on Christmas 2019.
