Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor have been hogging the limelight ever since they made their relationship official. The couple has been giving us major couple goals with their outings and adorable chemistry for a long time now. The two even celebrated the New Year's Eve together in New York along with Ranbir's parents. However, Alia feels that all this attention towards her relationship with Ranbir is taking the focus away from her work.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, she said, ''There was too much [focus] on the personal life, and honestly, I have never had my personal life getting spoken about so much. Earlier, these talks were very upar upar se but this year, it suddenly became all about that. Such talks don’t bother me, but I don’t like talking about it is because somehow, it then diverts all the attention, and that’s what it all becomes about. It’s not as if a relationship is an achievement. It is just a part – and a very important part – of my life.’’
‘'It’s seamless as well as beautiful, and should be celebrated when it has to be. Right now, it should just be left on its own and kind of kept in a corner where it can stay safe and warm. You can say that it’s like a cat in my life that I want to protect, and it’s not ready to come on social media the way Edward has,’’ she added.
On the professional front, Alia has an eventful year ahead with a slew of interesting projects in her kitty. She will be first seen in Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy opposite Ranveer Singh, then in Abhishek Verman’s Kalank, which also stars Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit and Varun Dhawan in vital roles, and finally in Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra alongside Ranbir Kapoor.
