I pleaded to Ayan that please cast me with him: Alia Bhatt on her desire to work with boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor


Alia Bhatt, who is currently on a career-high, recently spoke about how she literally had to plead to Ayan Mukerji to cast her in a film with Ranbir Kapoor. The actress has always been a fangirl of Ranbir and now he is her boyfriend. 

When asked about the same, Alia said, "The idea for Brahmastra was conceived long back when Ayan had just done Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. I wanted to work with him and I have always wanted to work with Ranbir as well. I pleaded to Ayan that please cast me with him."

When asked about the experience of working with Ranbir Kapoor, Alia replied, "With Ranbir, it is a completely different experience because I have always admired him. He is my favourite actor since he made his debut. He will always remain my favourite because he is so honest and effortless."

She revealed that Ranbir is spontaneous and has no method of acting. "When I set out to work with him, I was thinking that I will understand his process of acting, but there's no process. He is like me, he acts in front of the camera, and suddenly off camera, he is seen eating chocolates or chatting, wanting to know what is the gossip of the day. He is very hard working, so effortless and that is the beauty," she added.

Brahmastra also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna Akkineni and Mouni Roy and is all set to hit the silver screen this December.
