Alia, Siddharth embrace in a tight hug in public

Bollywood rumoured lovers Alia Bhatt and Siddharth Malhotra shed their inhibitions and hugged each other tight at the calendar launch of fashion photographer Dabboo Ratnani. The duo is believed to be dating each other, but they have never opened up about their alleged relationship.

The ‘Student of the Year’ co-stars attended the calendar launch held in Mumbai on Tuesday, January 12. Alia and Siddharth arrived separately, but as soon as they met they broke into a long, sweet embrace.

Though the rumoured couple have never proclaimed their love for each other in public, the young actors are often spotted together sneaking in and out of various gatherings. However, unlike their previous outings, the duo didn’t seem to have any qualms getting close and posing for the media. They appeared quite comfortable in everyone’s presence.

Alia and Siddharth are working together for Karan Johar’s ‘Kapoor and Sons’ which is scheduled to release this year. It is expected that the lovely couple will be seen together on more occasions when they come to promote the movie.

The romantic-comedy revolves around two brothers played by Siddharth and Fawad, while Rishi Kapoor will be playing their grandfather. Actors Sanjay Dutt and Amrita Puri are also cast in the movie.

‘Kapoor & Sons’ which went on floors in May, 2015, is set to hit screens on March 18, 2016.

Meanwhile, celebrities like Shraddha Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar, Sunny Leone, Athiya Shetty, Kriti Sanon, and Parineeti Chopra were present at the calendar launch. Kim Sharma, Aditya Thackeray, Javed Jaeffery were also spotted.
