Ranbir Kapoor fell in love countless times. The high-profile girlfriends we know are just the tip of the iceberg. There were many others, some of which, including a high-profile socialite, were intense while they lasted. But Alia Bhatt was special from the start. She is the first woman in Ranbir’s life whom he has truly committed to marry from the start.
Ranbir Kapoor – Alia Bhatt Wedding: Is this where the couple first met?
“It is not known what happened to Alia. But Ranbir shared a different equation with her from the start. He saw her as her father, Rishi Kapoor, saw Neetu Singh: the woman he was going to marry,” says a close friend of the couple.
Apparently, Ranbir never promised marriage to any of his other girlfriends. That he would marry Alia was a ‘given’ in their relationship from the moment they met at Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s residence. Incidentally, Salman Khan-Aishwarya Rai and Ranveer Singh-Deepika Padukone relationships began on the movie sets of Sanjay Bhansali.
So what did Alia have that Ranbir’s previous girlfriends didn’t?
Mom Neetu Kapoor’s approval and blessings. If mutual friends are to be believed, Ranbir’s mother never approved of Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif. “Neetuji warmed up to Alia from the start. Alia was comfortable with Rishiji and Neetuji. They were planning to get married in 2021. Then Rishi suddenly passed away and all wedding plans were postponed. But the mutual affection between Alia and Neetuji only grew over time”, says the friend.
Of all his son’s girlfriends, Rishi Kapoor loved Alia Bhatt the most. They got along well…well, not exactly like a house on fire. But definitely, there was a bond there, lacking when it came to Ranbir’s previous girlfriends Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif. In fact, neither Rishi Kapoor nor his wife Neetu Singh found much to talk about with Deepika or Katrina. Not that either of the two women made any effort to contact, much less connect, with Ranbir’s parents. This factor had a big influence on how Ranbir’s relationships were with his two previous girlfriends.
Alia, on the other hand, didn’t have to go out of her way to connect with Ranbir’s parents. “It’s natural for her. This joy of being a part of Ranbir’s family is a blessing for Alia. In her own family, she wanted her parents (filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and actress Soni Razdan) to be together. But her father was often absent. Being with Rishi and Neetu gave Alia a sense of belonging,” says a friend of the Kapoors.
With Rishi Kapoor gone, Alia keeps an eye on her future mother-in-law.
It is Alia, not Ranbir, who calls Neetu regularly. Ranbir is very taciturn. Alia is much more open about her feelings. That’s why, as far as Rishi is concerned, they make a perfect couple.
