The newest couple on the block Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt have been one of the most written about celebrities in 2018. Alia Bhatt, in a recent interview, confessed that her personal life has never been discussed about in the media.
“Yes, there was too much [focus] on the personal life, and honestly, I have never had my personal life getting spoken about so much. Earlier, these talks were very upar upar se but this year, it suddenly became all about that,” said Alia Bhatt to Hindustan Times.
The actress said that the constant articles written about their relationship no longer bother her.
“Such talks don’t bother me, but I don’t like talking about it is because somehow, it then diverts all the attention, and that’s what it all becomes about,” she said.
But the actress wishes that her relationship wasn’t focussed on so much.
“It’s not as if a relationship is an achievement. It is just a part – and a very important part – of my life. It’s seamless as well as beautiful, and should be celebrated when it has to be. Right now, it should just be left on its own and kind of kept in a corner where it can stay safe and warm. You can say that it’s like a cat in my life that I want to protect, and it’s not ready to come on social media the way Edward has,” she said.
On a professional front, Alia had a fantastic 2018 with her movie ‘Raazi’ becoming a critical and commercial success.
“I am very happy. It was sort of a risky/ different/important decision of my life. Also, I went on an extremely emotional journey with Raazi. So, when it’s counted amongst the most loved films of the year, or one of the films that kicked off a change of some kind, and a ‘smaller’ film that did big numbers, I feel thrilled. It was a huge team effort and we all worked extremely hard on it. There is no better feeling than people coming up with that kind of appreciation. Also, as an actor, it makes you believe in your choices. Honestly, I always had a gut feeling that Raazi could be one of those films, which does big numbers, but I didn’t want to say it out aloud. But when it actually happened, it gave me a lot of confidence, and I was content about my decision to do the film,” she said.
Alia Bhatt will be next seen in Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Gully Boy’, also starring Ranveer Singh.
