EXCLUSIVE: Alia Bhatt on her bond with Neetu Kapoor: She’s more of a friend than a saas
Alia Bhatt shares an amazing bond with her mother-in-law Neetu Kapoor. During a recent interview with Bollywood Bubble, Alia Bhatt opened up about her relationship with Neetu Kapoor. The actress revealed how her friends think Neetu Kapoor is the ‘coolest mom-in-law’ and more like a friend than saas.
Talking about her relationship with Neetu ji, Alia said, “It has evolved from the first time I met her. There was that time at which we all just became so much closer because I think grief or any kind of situation in a family brings you together, and makes you really value each other.”
The actress added, “My relationship with her will continue to deepen and evolve and even now I see it. She’s so much like Ranbir in a sense. She is so supportive, she’s so positive and at the same time, she really lets you be. Even through my years of knowing her, of like even staying in touch… it’s just very easy and she is very chill. Even during my wedding, my friends were like ‘Oh My God, your mother-in-law is just outstanding, she’s so cool. She’s too much fun. She’s really really cool.’”

Alia went on to add, “Whenever we have hung out, she’s not got that energy that I am your mother-in-law. She’s not got that vibe. She’s like I’m your friend. She said it also. She said ‘I will be your friend first. I will not be your mother-in-law’. Because that’s the relationship she had with her mom-in-law. So she’s like I want us to have that relationship. Genuinely, I’m so grateful for her in my life. She’s so.. even the kind of values that she has, you know, the positivity that she holds and the warmth she literally lets you. She walks into the room and there’s so much warmth. She has that same effect in my life.”
Alia got married to Ranbir Kapoor on April 14, 2022. The couple is all set to become parents.
