Alia and Ranbir Kapoor tied the knot in April 2022. They fell for each other while working together on the sets of Brahmastra and dated for years before eventually taking the plunge. The couple is expecting their first child as announced at the end of June this year.
In a recent interaction, Alia revealed that while her screen name will always be Alia Bhatt, she will soon officially change her name to Alia Bhatt-Kapoor, now that she has joined the Kapoor family. Talking to Mid-Day about updating the name on his passport, he said, “I am happy to do it.”
Alia, who has been planning to make a change for some time now, revealed that she did not get time to do it due to her busy schedule and several international trips. He spent almost a month in the UK for his Hollywood debut project Heart of Stone. After Ranbir changed the marital status on his passport ‘immediately’, Alia said, “Now we’re going to have a baby. I don’t want to be the Bhatts while the Kapoor family is traveling together; you know mine. What do you mean? I don’t want to feel lonely.”
“I will be and always will be Alia Bhatt. And now I am also Kapoor,” she confirmed when asked about changing her name to Alia Bhatt-Kapoor soon. Alia and Ranbir are waiting for the release of their film Brahmastra.
Ranbir will be seen as Shiva in the film. Alia will be his love interest Isha. Directed by Ayan Mukerji, it also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy in lead roles. It will be released on 2 September as the first part of the fantasy trilogy.
