Alia Bhatt: Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput set a great example for arranged marriages

Alia Bhatt is currently one of the leading actresses we have in Bollywood today, Her last film, Badrinath Ki Dulhania crossed the coveted 100-crore mark. On the personal front, the actress is rumoured to be dating Sidharth Malhotra but neither of them has confirmed their relationship status. However, the two are often spotted together on various occasions and their chemistry is unmissable.

In an interview with a leading daily, Alia was asked when marriage was on the cards for her. She replied, “Very far. I’m just 24 years old now. I love babies and want to have my own. But I have to have that kind of equation with my partner to move into that space.Aisa nahi hai ki excitement mein sab ho jayega.

On how she looks at marriage in today’s society, Alia revealed, “There are two ways of looking at it. I am not against marriage. Look at Shahid (Kapoor) and Mira. They are sweet together and they set a great example for arranged marriages. It’s a lifelong commitment. The relationship will change and evolve with time, but you need a basic connection and understanding with each other to go through the numerous phases of life together.”

She added, “Even my father had a first marriage which didn’t work and then his second marriage worked out beautifully. I’ve seen people with failed first marriages trying their hand at it all over again. I don’t call it a mistake or a taboo. It’s a complicated space. You don’t have to get it right each time and you can’t go wrong each time either. That is the reason you need to think it through.Before jumping into it, you should know for sure whether you want it.”
