Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor’s love story has always been the talk of the town ever since the two came together. From the speculations of them dating to them confirming their relationship, walking hand-in-hand at Sonam Kapoor’s wedding, their trips together to staying together during the lockdown, everything about the couple becomes a piece of news. For the longest of time, the rumours of the duo’s wedding have been doing rounds, however, now with the sudden demise of Ranbir’s father, Rishi Kapoor, their wedding seems to be a distant dream. Did you know Alia Bhatt had chosen Ranbir Kapoor as her first contestant for her swayamvar?

It was in the year 2014 when Alia Bhatt had talked about her crush and now-boyfriend, Ranbir Kapoor in Karan Johar’s famous chat show, Koffee With Karan. The actress had opened up about the time she had talked with Ranbir for the first time and had also stated her willingness to marry her forever crush. It makes us believe in the universe and Om Shanti Om’s famous dialogue, Kehte hain agar kisi cheez ko dil se chaho… to puri kainaat usse tumse milane ki koshish mein lag jaati hai. It feels that it was Alia’s honest plea and prayers that made her meet the crush of her life, work together and made them fall in love with each other. Alia is like a daughter to Karan Johar, and there is nobody in B-town, who can hide any secret from ace producer and director, Karan Johar.

If you are a Bollywood buff, you would know how we all desperately wait for Karan Johar’s chat show, Koffee With Karan because that is the only show that brings out the juiciest gossips of B-town as no one is spared from speaking out the truth. During one such episode of the show, Alia was busy gushing over Ranbir Kapoor, much before the time couple had started dating. However, what caught our attention was Alia’s answer during the rapid-fire round. Karan had asked Alia to pick on the possible grooms if any swayamvar happensfor her and she had to name three men from Bollywood only. Her first pick turned out to be her reality, as her first name was of Ranbir Kapoor, followed by Salman Khan and then Aditya Roy Kapur. We are sure, it is Alia’s shiddat towards Ranbir Kapoor that made them a couple.

Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor’s PDAs have always made their fans drool over them. One such instance was when Alia had won the Filmfare Best Actress award for her performance in Meghna Gulzar’s Raazi, the actress had accepted her award by confessing her love for her beau, Ranbir. Alia had gone up on the stage and had said, “Tonight is all about love; there, my special one, I love you Ranbir,” while Ranbir could not stop smiling. When in an interview, Alia was asked if it was an announcement of sorts? To this, Alia had responded, “That was not an announcement. And I don’t need to defend what I did because it was very personal.”

Talking about Alia-Ranbir’s love story, it was in the year 2018 when Ranbir had decided to let the world know about the love of his life. In an interview with the GQ magazine, the actor had said, “It’s really new right now, and I don’t want to over speak. 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.”
