Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt were recently joined by Alia’s father Mahesh Bhatt. Their pictures are being circulated on social media from that night. "When I saw those pics, I was like, ’Oh, the paparazzi age is here and you have people from the outside using their premise to capture the image, because that’s what the nation is thrusting for.’ So, not saying more, I’d let the paparazzi guess if papa is raazi," he told a leading daily.
"It’s very obvious that [Ranbir-Alia] are making no bones about talking to people about them being intimate. And I don’t belong to that category of parents who’d advise their children about their personal choices. Alia is an adult and it’s a matter that she has to resolve. It’s their life, their space. I respect and admire them for choosing to talk to the world when, and if, they want to do," he said.
Mahesh is quite in love with Ranbir and wouldn’t stop praising him. "I like and love him very much. He has got a core far deeper than what cinema space can capture," Mahesh said. While talking about his acting in Sanju, he said "He astounded me in Sanju. After Amitabh Bachchan’s Deewar (1975), this is the first time I’ve seen an actor take charge of a character, which is iconic like Sanjay Dutt. Ranbir is barely 34 or 35 and though he comes from the great lineage of the Kapoor family, he has a unique charm and talent that’s his own. He is an original, just like Alia is an original."
