In an interview, Alia said that there has been so much speculation surrounding her impending wedding that when she does get married for real, people will dismiss it as a rumour. She added that such a situation would be ‘great’ for her.
Talking to Film Companion, Alia said, “Whoever is spreading these rumours, it has become like the boy who cried wolf. They are crying wolf so often that actually when I am supposedly getting married, people will think it’s a rumour and it will be great for me because no one will know.”
In 2020, Ranbir said in an interview that he and Alia would have been married already, were it not for the Covid-19 pandemic. He added that he didn’t want to ‘jinx’ it.
Last year, at an event to launch the motion poster of Brahmastra, Ranbir was asked when he would marry ‘Alia or someone else’. “Well, haven’t we seen a lot of people getting married in the last one year? I think we should be happy with that,” he said.
Ranbir and Alia will soon be seen together in Brahmastra, the first part of a proposed fantasy trilogy, directed by Ayan Mukerji. The film also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy and Nagarjuna Akkineni. Reports suggest that Shah Rukh Khan will make a cameo appearance.
Brahmastra, inspired by Indian mythology, is set for a theatrical release on September 9, 2022, in multiple languages – Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada.
Currently, Alia is gearing up for the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi, in which she plays the titular role. The film will release in theatres on February 25.
