Alia Bhatt has dismissed any form of stress between herself and her current boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor’s ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif.
Alia and Katrina were known to share a close bond and used to post pictures of their workout routines on social networking site Instagram. They also made an appearance on Neha Dhupia’s BFF’s with Vogue late last year.
But ever since Alia started dating Ranbir, there have been reports that the girls were no longer on friendly terms. Even the Instagram posts have vanished.
Reacting to these reports, Alia said, “I don’t check my Instagram likes. So, I don’t know why people are checking that? But I have to admit I have always been very fond of Katrina. I believe that it’s the same both ways. So, I don’t know why other people feel differently?”
“But now I will send her a message to start liking my pictures because if that’s the barometer of friendship then we must start liking everyone’s picture.”
“Or maybe, I don’t have good pictures,” Alia continued, adding that from now on she will post good pictures and then maybe “she will like it. But with her, I have no stress whatsoever”.
Bhatt is currently dating Ranbir Kapoor and there have been speculations that the couple might tie the knot next year.
When asked about this, Alia responded, “I don’t react to rumours. Rumours are not meant to be reacted upon. As long as you aren’t entering my bathroom, I am fine because if you are not talking about me then maybe I am not relevant enough. But honestly, I am in a very good place both personally and professionally so no issues whatsoever.”
Alia is currently shooting for Ayan Mukherjee’s Brahmastra in Bulgaria alongside beau Ranbir and veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan.
The actor has also signed for Karan Johar’s upcoming historical magnum opus Takht. The film boasts an ensemble star cast of Alia, Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Anil Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal and Bhumi Padekar.
Asked about the challenges of playing a historical character, Alia said: “Honestly, to take any kind of character is challenging whether it’s historical, contemporary or modern.
“I am just very happy and honoured to be associated with such a big film… and to be directed by Karan (Johar) again.”
