Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor made headlines when they arrived together at Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s wedding reception party in Mumbai. It was speculated that these co-stars are more than just friends, but arriving together or rather making a public appearance together was like a final nail in the coffin. Bollywood’s ace designer, Manish Malhotra even predicted this couple will hook up in 2018 and here they are. The Highway actress is head over heels in love with her beau and Ranbir too, seems to be smitten by her. Of course these stars don’t believe in making any official announcement, so expecting them to accept their relationship in public would be foolish. You might as well read the subtle hints that they drop and deduce the final conclusion for yourself.

While the reports of their affair have definitely intrigued us to watch them together in Brahmastra next year, little did anyone know about their first project together. Yes, way before Alia was signed by Ayan Mukerji for Brahmastra, she had auditioned for another movie, which too, was being directed by Ayan. The movie in question here is Wake up Sid that released in 2009. Alia had auditioned for Konkana’s role in the movie but the role eventually went to the senior actress. We don’t know the real reason behind the makers rejecting the talented actress then, but we are glad she made her debut as Shanaya in Student of the Year in 2012.Also Read: [Inside Video] Here’s how Alia was bonding with Ranbir’s sisters, Kareena and Karisma at Sonam – Anand’s reception
If the makers had selected Alia for Wake Up Sid, she would have made her debut with RK Jr in 2009 itself. But guess destiny had some other plans in its store and the actress was destined to mark her debut with Sidharth and Varun instead. Nonetheless, a chubby looking Alia made us nostalgic and took us back in time when she was just one of us.
