Ranbir Kapoor is on fire right now- after the love and praise that his portrayal has received for the 'Sanju' trailer if the movie performs as well as the trailer has... this could give Ranbir the hit he desperately needs. Alia, on the other hand, has been on a high post the success of 'Raazi'. And the genetically-blessed duo has admitted to being a couple. Ranbir and Alia have never really discussed who they have been dating in the past, so this marks a change for both. In a chat with GQ magazine, Ranbir set the rumours to rest, here is an excerpt from his interview in the magazine.
You have often said you can be pretty detached. Is solitude underrated?
At some point, it begins to seem selfish. Often, I’m in my own little cocoon, and there’s a lot of making up to do. As I grow older, I realise that life is not really what happens on a movie set. The truth is that people forget you, even if you’ve done 30 years of amazing work, and you’ve left a legacy behind. When you’re 70 or 75, you’re not going to have that fame and adulation. People aren’t going to want to take selfies with you, and after it’s all done, who’s it going to be? It’s going to be you alone in a chair with an oxygen tank, wondering where everyone went. I’m painting a drastic picture right now, as a warning to myself that this could be me, and I don’t want to be that person. I want to have healthy grandchildren, a companion, even at the age of 80.
Are you dating Alia (Bhatt)?
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.
What’s the best thing about being newly in love?
It always comes with a lot of excitement. It’s a new person, it comes with new beats. Old tricks become new tricks again — you know, being charming and romantic, all of that. I think I’m more balanced today. I value relationships more. I can appreciate hurt and what it does to a person much more than I could a couple years back.
