Shahid Kapoor confirms Alia and Siddharth’s relationship


Bollywood actors Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt will be soon seen romancing each other in their upcoming romantic comedy film ‘Shaandaar’. The two actors are currently busy promoting the movie on various platforms.

During one such promotional campaign, Shahid apparently confirmed the secret affair between his co-star Alia and Siddharth Malhotra. In an interview with an entertainment channel, the ‘Haider’ actor was asked to mention one thing he doesn’t like about his ‘Shaandaar’ co star. At this Shahid said that Alia’s phone always remains busy and she never takes his calls.

Shahid further revealed the reason behind Alia’s phone being busy. The actor said, “She is always talking to sid-marketing.”  Alia was seen blushing at this remark. Although Shahid did not specifically take anyone’s name, according to the channel, the actor was probably talking about Alia’s rumoured boyfriend Siddharth Malhotra. Seems like the bubbly actress has given a new name to her beau.  

Alia and Siddharth alleged love affair has been doing the rounds for quite some time now. However, the duo has neither admitted to dating each other, nor denied it. Alia and Siddharth along with Varun Dhawan have debuted together with Karan Johar’s 2012 film ‘Student of The Year’. The couple will be seen once again in Shakun Batra’s ‘Kapoor & Sons’ which also stars Rishi Kapoor and Pakistani actor Fawad Khan.  

Meanwhile, Shahid and Alia will also be seen on-screen next year in Abhishek Chaubey’s ‘Udta Punjab’. Their film ‘Shaandaar’ which is set to release on October 22 on the occasion of Dushera has been directed by Vikas Bahl of ‘Queen’ fame.

‘Shaandaar’ also stars Shahid’s father Pankaj Kapur, Sanjay Kapoor and Sushma Seth among others. The film, said to be India’s first destination wedding film, has been produced by Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane. Karan also makes an appearance in the film.
