Here is why Alia Bhatt did not attend Neetu Kapoor’s birthday bash in Paris?

Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt are the brand new lovebirds of Bollywood. Since the time Ranbir went public with his relationship with the ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ actress, all eyes have been on the couple. Alia was seen bonding with Ranbir’s family over dinner dates and had also showered love not only by Ranbir’s mom Neetu Kapoor but also sister Riddhima.

Rumors also suggested that the actress will be zooming off to Paris to ring in Neetu’s 60th birthday with the Kapoor’s.

So recently when Neetu Kapoor celebrated her 60th birthday in Paris with just close family members, we tried sporting Alia too in these pic, but couldn’t. Fans too were in for a disappointment as Alia was not to be seen with the Kapoor Khandaan.

And now as per sources, Alia actaully avoided the birthday bash on the request of a special person.

As reported by Deccan Chronicles, Alia Bhatt’s father, director Mahesh Bhatt had asked the actress to not call off her work commitment and attend Neetu Kapoor’s birthday in Paris, “Bhatt Sahab always wants actors to do their best when they are at the peak of their careers. The younger generation does like to mix work with pleasure, but it was on her father’s advice that Alia decided to go to work instead of attending the birthday celebration.”

No, the filmmaker has no issues with his daughter’s relationship with the ‘Barfi’ star. Infact he was recently seen bonding with Ranbir at Alia’s home. Pictures of the three spending time together had set the social media buzzing with excitement.

Bhatt had even praised the ‘Sanju’ star in a recent interview and said, “I like and love him very much. He has got a core far deeper than what cinema space can capture.”

Though Alia missed the birthday bash, she did wish Neetu Kapoor and also shared a cute throwback picture from the veteran actress’ earlier visit to Bulgaria.

On the work front, Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor are working together for Ayan Mukerji’s ‘Brahmastra’. Alia also has ‘Gully Boy’ with Ranveer Singh and ‘Kalank’ with Varun Dhawan in her kitty.

Ranbir Kapoor will soon kickstart work on Yash Raj Films’ ‘Shamshera’ and Luv Ranjan’s untitled next with Ajay Devgn.
