On Wednesday, Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor took a break from parenting to attend an event in Mumbai. The couple, who welcomed their daughter Raha Kapoor in November of last year, were spotted together at Mumbai’s Press Club, where they saw a room filled with some of their most memorable photos taken by paparazzi and celebrity photographers over the years. Aside from photos of Ranbir and Alia with his parents, Neetu and the late Rishi Kapoor, there was also one with Katrina Kaif from a 2019 event.
Photos and videos of Ranbir and Alia looking at an old photo of them with Katrina were shared on social media by paparazzi and fan pages, with many reacting to them. The photo was taken at an awards show in 2019, when Katrina Kaif ran into Ranbir and Alia. Alia and Katrina are seen holding hands after hugging one another in the photo, while Ranbir looks on. Ranbir can be seen smiling and pointing to their photo with Katrina in videos shared from the event at the Press Club on Monday. Alia was friends with Katrina before she started dating Ranbir, and the two frequently praised each other on social media and in interviews.
A user commented on Ranbir and Alia Bhatt’s latest Instagram video from the event, writing, “Crazy how Alia ignored the picture with her ‘best friend.'” “Alia changed her facial expression and began to make a face when she saw Katrina’s photo,” another said. “Both of them (Alia and Ranbir) ignored the picture (with Katrina), they knew cameras were right there,” a fan defended Alia. “Ranbir’s reaction when he saw Katrina’s picture…” wrote another.
Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt were known as Bollywood’s BFFs, from bonding during the Dream Team 2016 tour in the United States to spending time at various parties in Mumbai. In 2017, the two twinned in monochromatic outfits for their appearance on the second season of BFFs with Vogue. Alia married Katrina’s ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor in April 2022 after dating for several years, and they welcomed their daughter a few months later in November. In contrast, Katrina married actor Vicky Kaushal in December 2021.
