However, just to burst your bubble a bit, the couple won't be tying the knot this year, after all. Yes, it's a heart-breaking news for many. After a gamut of celeb weddings last year, fans were expecting Ranbir-Alia to start the wedding season with their grand one. But, there might be a slight delay in their wedding due to the health of Ranbir's father – Rishi Kapoor.

As per reports, Neetu wanted the couple to tie the knot but it won't be happening until Rishi Kapoor gets hale and hearty and comes back to India. Rishi Kapoor has been in New York for the last few months undergoing treatment for some ailment which the family has kept a secret.

Since Ranbir and Alia are quite serious towards the relationship and commitment, and both are also at the peak of their careers, they are in no rush to plunge into nuptials. It has been just over a year, but the duo can be seen making steady progress in terms of their wedding. Their family get-together pictures and dinner dates, meanwhile, keep the belief of fans going stronger.
