Bollywood actor Alia Bhatt has said she would “neither deny nor admit” about her reported relationship with co-star Ranbir Kapoor.
Speaking on ‘Aap Ki Adalat’ TV show on India TV, Alia, reacting on the rumours about her alleged relationship with Ranbir started after their upcoming movie “Brahmastra” went to floors earlier this year, said, ”I don’t like to talk about my personal life in public. If there are rumours about me, then I shouldn’t get affected by them. If there is some truth in these speculations, then obviously they shouldn’t bother me. Neither I want to accept them, nor will I deny.
However, if the reports are not true in any sense, obviously I’ll come out in public to clarify myself. But I will never accept rumours about my relationship status in public.”.
When Alia was directly asked about her ongoing camaraderie with Ranbir, she said: “Like I said, I won’t deny or accept anything.”
Speaking about Ranbir as a co-star, she said: “He is a very talented actor. After working with him, I’m getting to
know him better. He is the most zen-like human being I’ve ever met in my life. He is so calm and relaxed on the sets as well as outside the sets.”
The actress, who recently featured in Meghna Gulzar’s film ‘Raazi’, spoke on many aspects of her professional as well as personal life.
She went candid about her latest film Raazi and what all went into the making of this spy-thriller surrounding the 1971 Indo-Pak war. The film was released on May 11.
Recently, Alia also wrapped up her shoot with Padmaavat actor Ranveer Singh in Zoya Akhtar’s next “Gully Boy”.
Recounting her experience of working with an ace actor like Ranveer, she said: “Ranveer has energy of a mad guy. He’s so diligent towards his work. After watching Padmaavat, I started seeing him in a very different light. “
In a short yet successful career in Bollywood, Alia, daughter of veteran Bollywood director Mahesh Bhatt, has delivered nine hits out of the 10 projects she has worked in.
One film which hasn’t fared well on the box office was “Shaandaar” – a romcom with Shahid Kapoor, released in 2015.
Alia revealed that she was left ‘heartbroken’ after the failure of “Shaandaar”, which wasn’t received well at both critical and commercial levels.
“Including Raazi, I have done total 10 films. All of them were good except for Shaandaar, which wasn’t received well by the audience. I was completely heartbroken after its failure. But my father told me to get back even stronger. Then I recollected myself and came back with films like Kapoor & Sons, Udta Punjab and Dear Zindagi,”Alia said on the show, which will be telecast on Saturday night.
On the work front, Alia recently essayed the role of an Indian spy, Sehmat in “Raazi”.
Going by the critics’ response, Raazi is being projected as Alia’s best performance till date. On the other hand, she will also feature in Gully Boy, slated to for a next year release.
Apart from this, she is working on Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra, which also features megastar Amitabh Bachchan.
