Rumors were floating around for quite a bit that Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt were more than just friends, especially when they arrived together at Sonam’s shaadi. However, Ranbir might just have spilled the beans on whether or not the two really are dating in a recent interview.
The arrival of both actors together raised speculation that perhaps, something might, in fact, be brewing between them
However, both actors have kept mum up until now.
…What with all the eye gazing and eye gazing
Ranbir Kapoor confirmed in an interview with Indian publication ‘GQ India’ that he was in a relationship with Alia after directly confronted with the question
He admitted that “it’s really new right now, and I don’t want to over speak,” before complimenting both her as an actor and as a person.
When asked what the best thing is about being newly in love, he stated that it “comes with new beats’ and “old tricks become new tricks again”
Reactions about the relationship have thus far NOT been too positive, with some uncomfortable by the age gap
Something about Ranbir-Alia feels gross. There have been bigger age gaps in Bollywood relationships, but imagine dating a friend of a baby cousin you always see at family gatherings. That's the closest equivalent to the close-knit nature of Bollywood I can think of.

One Twitter user pointed out an interesting theory that this was all a publicity stunt for his upcoming film with her
Ranbir has always used the topmost actress of the time. First it was Deepika, then Katrina and now Alia and all of this "news" comes out only when his movies are about to release. Like the world is so dumb we can't even see what he's trying to do.

A few thought to warn Alia to stay away from the ‘Casanova’
Ranbir is not good for actresses’s careers..Sonam, deepika n Katrina r gud examples. He will jinx alia’s good innings too? @aliaa08 better stay away from him!
