Rishi Kapoor wanted son Ranbir Kapoor to marry THIS person and it’s NOT Alia Bhatt
Rishi Kapoor shared a great and yet a very strange bond with son Ranbir Kapoor. He was a strict father but that never refrained him from showing his softer and humorous side sometimes. While Ranbir is in a steady relationship with Alia Bhatt, turns out she is not the one Rishi wanted his son to marry!
An old tweet of Rishi Kapoor has resurfaced where he poked fun at Ranbir’s friendship with director Ayan Mukerji. The veteran actor had posted a picture of Ayan with Ranbir together, and wrote, “Best friends! How about you both getting married now? High time! (sic)”. And of course, he had said that in jest.

and then, there were 3… from our vfx studio in london, way back in 2016. these were early days on this movie. alia was the new force in our creative life… the brief was simple… ranbir and alia needed to work as one unit and that relationship was more important than their individual characters because at it’s heart, our movie is… a love story… There has been a lot of love since then ❣️ After all, Love is Brahmāstra’s guiding Light💥 #brahmastra #lovestory
Earlier, speaking about son Ranbir, Rishi had said that he wants him to get married soon. In an interview with Mid-day in 2018, the veteran actor had said, “It is high time he got married. I settled down when I was 27, Ranbir is 35. So he should think about marriage. He can marry anyone of his choice; we don’t have any objection to it. I want to spend time with my grandchildren before I am gone.”
Ranbir is currently dating Alia. And the actress had shared an emotional obituary for Rishi. She wrote that for the past two years she has known him as “a friend, a fellow Chinese food lover, a total cinema lover, a fighter, a leader, a beautiful storyteller, an extremely passionate tweeter and a father.”

Alia has always attended functions, parties, or any event of the Kapoor family. In fact, when Rishi Kapoor was in the USA for his cancer treatment, many times Alia accompanied Ranbir to be with his family.
