New BFF of B-town: Alia, Katrina hug each other at awards event

Bollywood actresses Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif were spotted bonding at the recently held HT Most Stylish Awards 2016. The two ladies were all smiles and were seen hugging each other like long-lost friends.

The ‘Shaandaar’ actress shared a candid picture of her and Katrina in an embrace on her Instagram page and captioned it, "Candid! #FavouritePerson."

It comes as a surprise as earlier there was buzz that Alia was the reason behind Katrina’s split with Ranbir Kapoor. According to the reports, Katrina couldn’t stand her then boyfriend Ranbir’s proximity to Alia at the house parties thrown by the ex-couple.

Ranbir's fondness for Alia had started bothering the ‘Phantom’ actress, resulting in arguments between the former couple. Katrina even wanted Alia to be dropped from Ranbir’s upcoming film by director Ayan Mukherji, but in vain.

However, going by the picture of Alia and Katrina, the reports appear to be mere rumours. The two divas seem to have become the new best friends of Bollywood.

If reports are to be believed, Alia is dating Sidharth Malhotra. Although, they might not have admitted their relationship openly, the couple is often spotted displaying their emotions for each other. Recently during Alia’s birthday, Sidharth gifted her a cute cake.

Sidharth was also seen holding on to his rumoured lover’s dupatta and alia blushing at his act during a promotional tour of their latest film ‘Kapoor & Sons’.

Meanwhile, ex-lovebirds Ranbir and Katrina are shooting the last portions of Anurag Basu’s ‘Jagga Jasoos’.
