NEW DELHI: Actor Alia Bhatt, who appeared as the first celebrity guest along with her ‘Gully Boy’ co-star Ranveer Singh, on Karan Johar’s chat show ‘Koffee With Karan’, spoke about how she is still on good terms with some of Ranbir Kapoor’s exes and they all love her.
Karan, in the quirky rapid-fire round with Alia, asked, “Which statement sums you up better? How to stay friends with an ex? Or How to stay friends with your partner’s ex?”
Alia, after thinking for a while, chose the second option and replied, ” I think how to stay friends with your partner’s ex. I am very, very good friends with his exes. Yeah and I love them both…And..the others, but I don’t know them.”
Before dating Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor was in a long-term relationship with Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif. Alia shared a bond with both Katrina and Deepika and pictures of them spending time together surfaced on social media often. In fact, Alia is all set to be teaming up with Katrina Kaif in Farhan Akhtar’s next road-trip film ‘Jee Le Zara’.
ALIA BHATT-RANBIR KAPOOR LOVE STORY STARTED ON AN AEROPLANE
Speaking about her wedding, Alia spilled the beans about Ranbir Kapoor’s hush-hush proposal during their visit together to Israel. When host Karan said that Ranbir and Alia’s upcoming film, ‘Brahmastra’ was the ‘product’ of their love story, Alia, looking pretty in pink, admitted that “it was not meant to happen” if they did not take the flight to Israel’s Tel Aviv on New Year.
She opened up that although her friends told her that she and Ranbir ‘were totally going to get together’, she wanted the process to ‘happen naturally’. “We both talked about it on our flight to Tel Aviv to do a workshop on ‘Brahmastra’. So, I remember him walking in and he was supposed to sit next to me. He sat next to me. Something got stuck in his seat, some malfunction was happening in his seat so they were going to move him to another seat. And I was like, ‘Why is my dream getting shattered?’ disclosed Alia.
“But then his seat got fixed, so he came and sat back. And then when we exchanged notes..” added Alia before going to explain that Ranbir was quite irritated that the seat had to “break down at that moment” when the duo were seated together ‘nicely’.
Alia further said that the ‘vibe’ between her and Ranbir ‘started from there only’, remarking that the rest ‘was history’, flashing her adorable smile.
