All in the past: Alia has “love and respect” for Varun and Sidharth


All everyone wants to know more about these days is Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor! Her associations with Student of the Year debutants, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra suddenly seem so long ago and faraway. Asked recently about her SOTY co-stars – and don’t forget, she was also allegedly linked with both - she said, “I’ve had individual equations with both Sid and Varun. The three of us branched out and have found our own niche through time. We felt responsible to do justice to the kind of launch we had. Our journey has been charged. Even when we worked together, whether it was Sid and I in Kapoor and Sons or Varun in the Dulhania films, we’ve maintained the same energy. I’ve a lot of love, respect and positivity for both these boys.”

She also speaks about her equation with her contemporaries; she is one of the few who is genuinely friends even with the competition. From Priyanka Chopra and Jacqueline Fernandez, to Shraddha Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, they all seem to love her. She smiles and explains that she is a nice a person and so are the girls mentioned. “We’re all warm and cordial towards each other. I’m particularly close to Katrina and Priyanka because of the time I’ve spent with them. I make it a point to hang out with PeeCee whenever she’s in town because she’s someone who inspires me. Similarly, I’ve known Katrina for a couple of years now. We’ve got to know each other organically. It all happened when Kat and I started spending time in the gym. Today, she’s someone who I can say is my friend. I know I can count on her when I’m in trouble and she can count on me, for sure. She’s got my back and I’ve hers.”

Interestingly, her budding friendship with Ranbir Kapoor hasn’t seemed to have come between Alia and Kat. If that’s not amazing what is?!
