Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt undoubtedly are one of the hottest couples in the tinsel town right now. After Ranveer Singh-Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra-Nick Jonas’ wedding, all the media eyes are constantly on these two. And why not? After all, the two have left no stone unturned to paint the town red with their love. They met on the sets of Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra in Bulgaria and hit it off really well. But like most other celeb couples, they too kept denying dating each other for quite some time. It was only after their joint appearance at Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s wedding reception in May 2018, things were made official.

Replying to the same question, Alia blushed and revealed that her first celebrity crush was none other than Ranbir Kapoor. She also told that she was only 11 when she first met him. She said, “I met Ranbir when I was 11, I had auditioned for Black. Since then, I had a crush on him. And then he came in Saawariya, and I had already seen him.”

After hearing her response, Anushka asked Alia if she also had his posters in her room to which the actress replied with a ‘No’. But she also revealed that she used to stare at his pictures instead.
