After months of "are they or aren't they", Ranbir Kapoor has finally admitted that hieand Alia Bhatt are in fact a thing.
When GQ straight up asked the actor if he's dating Bhatt, he replied, "It’s really new right now, and I don’t want to over speak. It needs time to breathe and it needs space. As an actor, as a person, Alia is – what’s the right word? – flowing right now. When I see her work, when I see her act, even in life, what she gives is something that I’m aspiring to for myself. It’s new for us, so let it cook a bit."
He also added that a new relationship is always synonymous with "a lot of excitement".
"It’s a new person, it comes with new beats. Old tricks become new tricks again – you know, being charming and romantic, all of that. I think I’m more balanced today. I value relationships more. I can appreciate hurt and what it does to a person much more than I could a couple years back," he added.
In an earlier interview, Alia had been all praise for Kapoor too: "I would definitely say that I’m fascinated by the kind of person he is, with his vibe and behaviour. He is a really rare person and in the years that I have been alive, I haven’t seen many such people.”
The duo will be appearing together in Brahmastra, being produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions alongside Amitabh Bachchan and Mouni Roy; it hits cinemas August 15, 2019.
