Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor are making headlines together ever since they made a joint appearance at Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s wedding reception earlier this month. While fashion designer, Manish Malhotra, had already predicted that they will hook up in 2018, the fact that they could be a future couple was further sealed. From being co-stars in Brahmastra to the latest lovebirds in the industry, their bond has only grown intense with time. The Highway star was always quite vocal about how she had a girl crush on RK Jr and Ranbir too, in his recent interaction, reciprocated in a similar way.
Alia’s obsession with Ranbir was well evident when the actress appeared on Karan Johar’s chat show, Koffee with Karan with her Student of the Year co-stars, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra in 2013. Yes, it was the same episode for which Alia was trolled for naming ‘Prithiviraj Chauhan’ as the President of India. Anyway, that hardly matters today. The host, in his rapid-fire segment, asked her to name an actor she wouldn’t mind doing a steamy scene with. No points for guessing, she chose Ranbir Kapoor for her answer. Alia’s choice didn’t startle us then, but today, it does raise some eyebrows. Alia’s fascination towards the actor was always loud and clear, yet we were fools to ignore it.
Not many know, but Alia-Ranbir was earlier supposed to star in Wake Up Sid before Brahmastra. The actress had even auditioned for Konkana’s role but the senior actress bagged it somehow. If the makers had selected Alia for Wake Up Sid, she would have made her debut with RK Jr in 2009 itself. But guess destiny had some other plans in its store and the actress was destined to mark her debut with Sidharth and Varun instead.
