When the rumours broke out that sparks were flying between two of today’s finest actors, Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor, on the sets of their superhero-drama, Brahmastra, fans’ opinions were quite divisive. Due to Ranbir’s break-up with his girlfriend of almost 5 years soon before his relationship with Alia, and the big age gap between Alia and Ranbir, some fans did not react well to such rumours. Alia’s close friendship with Katrina also made her involvement with Ranbir quite awkward, especially as the news of Ranbir and Katrina’s split came as a shock to most of their fans.

However, Alia and Ranbir have been together for almost 3 years and have rapidly become one of the most loved celebrity couples of Bollywood. Although they have not officially confirmed their relationship in so many words, they have been all praises for each other and been snapped regularly at each other’s family events and high-profile wedding functions. On top of this, their film, Brahmastra, directed by Ayan Mukherji and produced by Karan Johar, is one of Ayan’s passion projects and 2020’s most awaited Bollywood production.
Fans anticipating the film were given a delightful surprise earlier today when a leaked clip of Alia and Ranbir dancing in a song from Brahmastra hit social media. In the video, Alia can be seen in jeans, a white top and a long red shrug, sporting a backpack and dancing by herself. She is later joined by Ranbir, dressed in jeans and a hooded khaki jacket, and carrying a backpack, who performed a step with her before she was seen running out of the frame. Certain background dancers can also be seen surrounding Alia and Ranbir in the video. The festive mood of the song and their sparkling chemistry suggests that it might be a Holi number.

Initially scheduled for a Christmas 2019 release, the official logo of Brahmastra was unveiled on March 6 2019. However, the film’s release was postponed to summer 2020 before it was finally announced on February 2 2020 that the final release date of the film would be December 4 2020. On the 29th of February this year, Amitabh Bachchan, who also stars in a lead role in the film, had signalled the film wrap of Brahmastra and posted a lovely collage of pictures which showed him and Ranbir on the sets together. Along with the picture, he tweeted a few lovely words of appreciation for his younger co-star, which can be read as: “he teaches and sets up for me the sound ear plugs .. they sound good .. good riddance of the wires and cables .. !!” Here is the heartwarming collage.
Alia and Ranbir, who are co-starring for the first time in Brahmastra, are also rumoured to be getting married this year. Alia has talked about her relationship with Ranbir in a recent interview with Bombay Times, where she had called it a friendship. She was quoted as saying, “It’s beautiful. I’m walking on stars and clouds right now.” Ranbir had also gushed about Alia in an interview with GQ magazine at the beginning of their relationship. Saying, “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.” (Also Read: Malaika Arora And Arjun Kapoor's Dinner Night Is Every Fitness Freak Couple's Dream Date Ever)
We hope that Ranbir and Alia will continue to inspire each other professionally as well as romantically, and we can’t wait to see where their relationship takes them!
