Alia Bhatt also bonded with actress Priyanka Chopra in New York City.

Alia and Priyanka also made some time for each when she was in India before the Quantico actress's engagement to Nick Jonas, and the two girls were spotted in December 2017 at dinner together. PeeCee and Alia were touted as the new BFFs of B-town, even as the latter continued to flaunt her friendship with other superstar Bollywood actresses like Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone and Kareena Kapoor Khan.

In New York, Priyanka Chopra and Anupam Kher were among those who paid a visit to Rishi Kapoor. Actress Sonali Bendre, who is herself undergoing treatment in the US for metastatic cancer, also met the Kapoors.

We wish Rishi Kapoor and Sonali Bendre a speedy recovery. As for Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor, we see a strong foundation being built for their relationship!
