Lovebirds Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor enjoy stroll on New York streets


Alia Bhatt headed to New York to see ailing Rishi Kapoor, who has been undergoing treatment there for few weeks. Rishi has also missed his mother Krishnaraj Kapoor’s funeral due to his medical treatment.

To show her support, the ‘Raazi’ actor after wrapping up of ‘Kalank’ shooting schedule in Kargil, took her flight to the US. On reaching there, Alia Bhatt also shared her picture on her social media handle and now a new picture has been doing round the net in which the actress was seen enjoying a stroll on the streets of NYC.

Alia Bhatt has been maintaining a good rapport with the Kapoor family. From updating about Krishnaraj’s funeral to Ranbir through video calling from the cremation ground, she has been doing her responsibility with dedication towards the family.  

Alia and Ranbir are rumoured to be dating. Speaking to Mumbai Mirror about their relationship, Rishi had said, “It’s Ranbir’s life. Who he wants to get married to is his prerogative. Neetu likes her, I like her, Ranbir likes her. Get it? I can’t be judgmental. After all, my uncles Shammiji (Shammi Kapoor) and Shashiji (Shashi Kapoor) and I chose our life partners. Ranbir is entitled to choose his.”

Before leaving, Rishi had tweeted to his fans on September 29, “Hello all! I am taking a short leave of absence from work to go to America for some medical treatment. I urge my well wishers not to worry or unnecessarily speculate. It’s been 45 years “plus”of wear and tear at the movies. With your love and good wishes,I will be back soon!”

However, it was highly speculated that the actor is suffering from cancer, “We don’t know yet what is the exact nature of his ailment,” Randhir Kapoor dismissed the false story about Rishi's illness. “Rishi himself doesn’t know what he is suffering from. He hasn’t even started undergoing tests there; how can people speculate that he has cancer and that too, one that has escalated to an advanced stage.”
