Sidharth is still a part of my life: Alia Bhatt

Rumoured lovers Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra are of late making news for their on and off relationship. Reports suggested that the ‘Student of the Year’ co-stars called it quits in order to concentrate on their careers. In fact, at the recent pre-release screening of ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, both the actors avoided coming face to face and maintained a safe distance from each other.

However, in an interview to a popular publication, Alia rubbished the rumours that she and Sidharth were having a lovers' tiff and that the ‘Ek Villain’ actor is very much a part of her life.

“When were we dating to have broken up? Sid is still a part of my life and I do talk to him,” Alia told Mumbai Mirror. Alia, who is a self-confessed die-hard romantic at heart, revealed about falling in love when she was in the eighth standard.

“I dated him for two years. I was planning babies in my head and all of that. He was a little possessive and I learnt not to let anybody tell me what to do,” Alia said.

The ‘Udta Punjab’ actress confessed that she truly fell in love when she was 16 and was heartbroken when the relationship ended.

Alia, who had been shooting for ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ in Singapore, was in Mumbai to ring in her mom Soni Razdan’s birthday, which was on Tuesday last. She has already taken off for Singapore to resume shooting for the Karan Johar production opposite Varun Dhawan.

Alia will be soon seen in Gauri Shinde’s ‘Dear Zindagi’ which also stars Shah Rukh Khan, Aditya Roy Kapur, Angad Bedi and Kunal Kapoor. The film is slated to release on November 25.
