There has been a lot of speculation about actors Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor’s relationship, and while the two people concerned have not denied or confirmed the rumours, their family members have given some insight to what is going on. Alia’s dad Mahesh Bhatt was one to comment on his daughter’s relationship with Ranbir, which lead the actress to react to it.

Mahesh had in an interview with The Telegraph spoken about how Alia and Ranbir are in love and where their relationship is heading.

“Well, of course they’re in love. You don’t need to be a genius to get that! I love Ranbir… he’s a great guy. What they do to their relationship is something they’ll have to figure out. Whether it’s heading towards that port called ‘marriage’ – which is an institution that needs to be questioned in the second decade of the 21st century – is something for them to figure out,” he had said.

“I’m no one to hazard a guess when that would happen or which way the relationship is going. It’s life and life needs to be lived on its own terms. Let’s wait and see what tomorrow brings for us!” he added.

Alia was asked at an event what she thought of her father’s comment on her relationship with Ranbir.

“To be honest, I don’t want to talk about it, I am feeling shy. But, I love my father and anything he says obviously means the world to me,” she had said.

Rumours about Alia and Ranbir being in a relationship started heating up after the pair started acting together in movie Brahamastra.
