Ranbir Kapoor & Alia Bhatt’s recent late night rendezvous was all over the news. The paparazzi spotted Ranbir at Alia’s home and later, the rumoured lovebirds were pictured talking to the actress’ dad Mahesh Bhatt. The pictures took no time to go viral. So, what does the filmmaker has to say about Alia, Ranbir & their alleged affair? Let’s check out the pictures first!

Even as rumour mills go into an overdrive with their speculations, Mahesh Bhatt has decided to keep everyone guessing. In an interview with a leading daily, he said, “When I saw those pics, I was like, ‘Oh, the paparazzi age is here and you have people from the outside using their premise to capture the image, because that’s what the nation is thrusting for.’ So, not saying more, I’d let the paparazzi guess if papa is raazi.”

When asked if he has ever advised Alia on relationship matters? No, perhaps is the answer. “It’s very obvious that [Ranbir-Alia] are making no bones about talking to people about them being intimate. And I don’t belong to that category of parents who’d advise their children about their personal choices. Alia is an adult and it’s a matter that she has to resolve. It’s their life, their space. I respect and admire them for choosing to talk to the world when, and if, they want to do,” he said.

The filmmaker could not stop gushing about Ranbir. “I like and love him very much. He has got a core far deeper than what cinema space can capture,” Mahesh said.

Mahesh Bhatt was blown over by his act in Sanju. Sharing how he feels about the actor and his work, he said,  “He astounded me in Sanju. After Amitabh Bachchan’s Deewar (1975), this is the first time I’ve seen an actor take charge of a character, which is iconic like Sanjay Dutt. Ranbir is barely 34 or 35 and though he comes from the great lineage of the Kapoor family, he has a unique charm and talent that’s his own. He is an original, just like Alia is an original.”
