Alia Bhatt picked THIS character from FRIENDS for Ranbir Kapoor

Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor, Bollywood’s most lovely couple, married for life on April 14 after 5 years of togetherness. The duo tied the knot at their Pali Hill Bandra home ‘Vastu’ in the presence of close friends and family members. Close cousins like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Karisma Kapoor, Adaar Jain, Armaan Jain, and others were present during their wedding.

As we celebrate Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor’s next step in their blossoming romance, In 2016, in an Interview, Pinkvilla asked Alia to recast the iconic sitcom Friends, with a Bollywood stars ensemble. Giving her the situation of a Bollywood remake of Friends and who she would cast, Alia first picked herself to play Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow), a character she “loves” and thinks is “absolutely crazy.” However, Bhatt was confused as she also wanted to be Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston) because “she has the lovely love story with Ross Geller (David Schwimmer).” Hence, she picked herself to play Rachel.

Alia picked Deepika Padukone as Monica Geller (Courtney Cox). As for Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry), who is “very sarcastic,” Bhatt picked her 2 States co-star and friend Arjun Kapoor because he is “super sarcastic.” While picking Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc), the Gangubai Kathiawadi star laughed out loud as she chose Salman Khan. Alia thought out loud and carefully as to who could play Ross, someone who is “very funny, the comic timing is bang on!” Eventually, she picked her future husband, Ranbir Kapoor, who’s like “awkward, but whatever.” Despite the fact that the couple began dating soon after this interview, we adore Alia’s foreshadowing by recasting Ranbir and herself as Friends soulmates Ross and Rachel. Friends fans will never be able to get enough of the challenging but adored relationship!

Jennifer and David, who played Ross and Rachel on Friends: The Reunion, had suddenly disclosed, much to the joy of Friends fans, that they had fallen in love in real life, but the ship never sailed.
