Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra have never admitted about their rumoured relationship in public but latest reports suggest that the actress has officially introduced him as her boyfriend in front of close friends.

Alia invited some close friends to her new Juhu residence and introduced Sidharth as her beau, according to Mumbai Mirror. The report also said that the couple later headed for a vacation together as they were spotted at Mumbai airport on Thursday.

Alia was comfortable posing for the shutterbugs at the airport but Sidharth reportedly asked the photographers not to click him. The "Ek Villain" actor's publicist reportedly asked the lensmen at the airport not to release the photos as Sidharth was travelling for "personal work." The report also said Sidharth's spokesperson revealed that the actor headed for Delhi.

While their affair has always been a hot topic, there were reports earlier that Sidharth and his rumoured girlfriend had broken up and were not in talking terms. The rumours of their breakup were followed by various speculations suggesting as reasons for the split. Some reports had said that Sidharth's increasing closeness to Shraddha Kapoor had created tension between them, while some others had suggested that the two used to fight over Alia's ex-boyfriends.

Rumours of their breakup got more momentum when the "Udta Punjab" actress had said that she is single and Sidharth is just a good friend. "I am single and Sid is a supportive and extremely important friend in my life and will always be that. As a friend, rather than asking him not to do films with any actress, I keep telling Sid to work with every person because I think he has all the charm, talent and sexiness in the world and the potential to become the biggest superstar of this country. Never in my life, will we ever tell each other what we should or should not do," DNA had quoted Alia as saying earlier. However, latest reports suggest that everything is fine between the two and are still dating each other.
