Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor are expecting their first child. Alia had her baby shower on Wednesday, with her family and friends.
Alia’s sisters Pooja Bhatt and Shaheeh Bhatt, as well as Ranbir’s mother Neetu Kapoor, sister Riddhima Kapoor Sahni, cousin Karisma Kapoor, and grandmother Neila Devi, were seen arriving at Ranbir’s Mumbai home Vastu, where the couple lives.
Alia looked gorgeous as she was dressed up for the occasion in a bright yellow kurta set.
Photos of Shaheen Bhatt seated inside a car with other family members outside Alia and Ranbir’s home were shared on social media by paparazzi accounts. She was dressed in a traditional green and pink Indian outfit. Earlier this month, it was reported that Alia’s mother, actor Soni Razdan, and Ranbir’s mother, actress Neetu Kapoor, were planning a girls-only baby shower for Alia. Kareena Kapoor, Karisma Kapoor, Shweta Bachchan, Navya Nanda, and many other celebrities were reportedly invited to the intimate celebrations.
Alia Bhatt surprised the internet earlier when she announced her pregnancy with husband Ranbir. Since then, the expecting mother has been filming and promoting her two most recent films, Darlings and Brahmastra. Alia and Ranbir have recently been spotted out and about. While Ranbir was in Mumbai for the Durga puja celebrations at filmmaker Ayan Mukerji’s family pandal, Alia was in Singapore for an international awards show.
Alia also shared a new video from the Time100 awards ceremony on October 2. Alia wore a metallic gown to the awards ceremony, where she delivered an impressive speech that went viral on social media. In her award acceptance speech, Alia had said, “I am immensely proud to be here tonight as the representative of my country — a country that has built both me and my career. India is a country that, at its core, values diversity above anything else.”
She added, “And lastly when it comes to making an impact, I hope that I can continue to do so in whatever way possible, but for now, tonight, this award has genuinely made an impact on me…Me and my little one, who has relentlessly kicked me through this speech.” Alia also thanked her family members. “Thank you all for patiently listening to me. Also thank you to my team, for constantly being there for me, my family; my mom (Soni Razdan) for bringing me on to this planet; my father (Mahesh Bhatt); my sister Shaheen Bhatt, who has helped put my talks into words; my husband Ranbir Kapoor. I need to give them separate awards for putting up with me on a daily basis.”
On the work front
Meanwhile, Alia was recently seen in Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra, which was highly appreciated by the audience. She will next be seen in Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani and her Hollywood debut Heart of Stone.
