Walk down the memory lane

For the unversed, here is some trivia about his first meeting with Alia, more than a decade and a half ago. Did you know that if things had gone differently, they would have been launched together in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Balika Vadhu?

At the Lokmat Maharashtrian of the Year Awards 2017, Ranbir revealed that he even did a photoshoot with Alia for Balika Vadhu, and has been a 'fan' of her since then. He said that he enjoyed her performance in Imtiaz Ali's Highway and was blown away by her range of emotions.

Interestingly, Alia has indeed been relatively constant with her affection for Ranbir. She admitted to having a massive crush on him during her appearance on Koffee With Karan in 2013 and even said that she wished to marry him. She also reminisced about their awkward interaction on the phone shortly after the release of Rockstar in 2011.

On the professional front, Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor will be seen in Brahmāstra.

Team International Business Times, India wishes Ranbir Kapoor a very happy and a delighted birthday.
