In October, the Kapoor family organised a mega baby shower for Alia. Neetu Kapoor, Riddhima, Ranbir’s cousin Karisma Kapoor and grandmother Neila Devi, Soni Razdan, and Alia’s sister Shaheen Bhatt were present at the event. Among the guests were filmmakers Karan Johar, Ayan Mukerji, and actor-model Anushka Ranjan.
Alia and Ranbir tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at the Kapoor home, Vastu, in Mumbai’s Bandra on April 14. On June 27, Alia announced her pregnancy on Instagram with the picture of an ongoing ultrasonography test. She wrote in the caption, “Our baby… coming soon.”
Hit pair on screen and off it
Ali and Ranbir were recently seen together in the blockbuster “Brahmastra Part 1: Shiva” directed by Ayan Mukerji. Incidentally, it was on the sets of “Brahmastra” that the duo fell in love. They dated each other for almost five years before getting married.
Alia is slated to make her Hollywood debut with the much-talked-about international spy thriller, “Heart of Stone,” alongside Gal Gadot, Jamie Dornan, Matthias Schweighofer, and Sophie Okonedo. Alia has also wrapped up shooting for Karan Johar’s “Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani,” starring Ranveer Singh in the lead.
