Alia Bhatt: When I watch Ranbir Kapoor perform, I forget my dialogues at times
It is no secret that Alia Bhatt has fit right in with her boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor's family. In fact, she even welcomed 2019 with the Kapoors in New York, where Rishi Kapoor is undergoing medical treatment.
Alia is extremely fond of Rishi and Neetu Kapoor and could not stop gushing over them in a recent interview with a leading newspaper. "Neetuji is a fabulous human being. I can call her a friend. She is chilled out and has a great attitude towards life and I think Ranbir gets that cool, relaxed, chilled out and mast attitude from his mother," she said.
"Rishiji... (smiles) the best thing about him is that he is unique. Whenever you get some time to spend with Rishiji, you just have fun with him since he is unique in his own self. One cannot learn and take away anything from him simply because there is only one Rishi Kapoor," the 25-year-old actress added.
Alia also heaped praise on her boyfriend Ranbir and his acting prowess. "I have never seen a more natural actor in my life. He's one of the greatest actors. Not only am I fond of him as an actor but a lot of girls and guys admire him as an actor," she said.
Ranbir is "very relaxed and chilled out" on the sets and immerses himself completely in his craft. Alia, who is an actress par excellence herself, revealed that she is blown away by his effortlessness and even forgets her dialogues sometimes, when she watches him perform.
"I usually remember my dialogues well, I never forget my lines while performing a scene but when I watch Ranbir perform, I do forget my dialogues at times... simply because, when Ranbir is emoting, he does it with so much ease. I just keep watching him. I tend to forget about my performance. He has the most honest and simple eyes," she said.
On the work front, Alia is currently awaiting the release of Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy, in which she is paired opposite Ranveer Singh. The film is scheduled to open in theatres this Valentine's Day (February 14).
