Bollywood's latest celebrity couple and co-stars Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor may have only just admitted to being in a relationship, but it's clear the seeds of this romance were first sown way back in January, when they began their shooting schedule for their upcoming film Brahmastra in Tel Aviv. The two probably assumed they could pass off for regular Indian tourists while they spent quality time together at a local bar — but their alone time was interrupted by fans. Though the duo obliged to their requests, they don't look so happy to be photographed:
Rumours abounded in the press, kicking into high gear when the couple made a public appearance together at Sonam Kapoor's wedding in May. But the internet really went into meltdown mode when Ranbir opened up about the relationship in an interview with GQ. "It's really new right now, and I don't want to overspeak. It needs time to breathe and it needs space. 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," he said.
The film is slated to release on August 15, 2019, but it seems the Kapoor family is welcoming Alia into the fold with open arms. Ranbir's sister, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni, gifted her a gorgeous gold and diamond bracelet from her eponymous brand, which Alia proudly showed off on social media.
