Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor have been hitting headlines ever since the latter openly spoke about dating the Raazi actress. The two hit it off while they began shooting for Ayan Mukerji's upcoming directorial venture Brahmastra earlier this year. While there are reports that Alia and Ranbir will reportedly tie the knot in 2019, a fan popped the question whether she will be turning from Bhatt to Kapoor.

During an interaction session on Twitter, a fan asked Alia whether he can address her as Alia Kapoor considering her relationship with Ranbir Kapoor.

"Can we call you Alia Kapoor?" a fan asked. To which Alia, at her wittiest best, gave an epic response and asked, "Can I call you Himanshu Bhatt?"

There's no doubt that both the Bhatts and the Kapoors have given their nod to Alia and Ranbir's relationship.

When Mahesh Bhatt was recently asked about Alia and Ranbir's marriage, the filmmaker said, "Well, of course, they're in love. You don't need to be a genius to get that. What they do to their relationship is something they'll have to figure out. Whether it's heading towards that port called 'marriage' - which is an institution that needs to be questioned in the second decade of the 21st century - is something for them to figure out. I'm no one to hazard a guess when that would happen or which way the relationship is going. Its life and life needs to be lived on its own terms. Let's wait and see what tomorrow brings for us."

Unlike Ranbir Kapoor's past girlfriends, the Kapoor family has welcomed Alia with open arms. Reports suggest that though marriage is on the cards for Ranbir and Alia, they will decide their marriage date once Rishi Kapoor recovers from his illness.

While Ranbir has always openly spoken about his relationship with Alia, the latter hasn't spoken about her future plans. However, reports state that Alia is all for marriage and will continue to work in films unlike other daughters-in-law like Neetu Kapoor and Babita who gave up their acting careers after getting married in the Kapoor clan.
