Mumbai: It’s finally out in the open. Ranbir Kapoor ended all speculation by accepting his relationship with Alia Bhatt publically. In an interview to GQ, the actor said, “It’s really new right now, and I don’t want to overspeak. It needs time to breathe and it needs space. As an actor, as a person, Alia is – what’s the right word? – flowing right now. When I see her work, when I see her act, even in life, what she gives is something that I’m aspiring to for myself. It’s new for us, so let it cook a bit.” He also said that he is enjoying this ‘newly in love’ phase, “It always comes with a lot of excitement. It’s a new person, it comes with new beats. Old tricks become new tricks again – you know, being charming and romantic, all of that. I think I’m more balanced today. I value relationships more. I can appreciate hurt and what it does to a person much more than I could a couple years back.” This is the first time Alia and Ranbir have accepted their relationship. They had earlier said they have a crush on each other but never confirmed it.
