The speculation over Brahmastra co-stars Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor's relationship has only increased since they appeared together at Sonam Kapoor Ahuja's wedding in May. Now, in a recent interview with the GQ magazine, Kapoor seems to have hinted at some truth behind the rumours.

When asked pointedly about the nature of their relationship, Kapoor replied, "It’s really new right now, and I don’t want to over speak. It needs time to breathe and it needs space." 

"As an actor, as a person, Alia is – what’s the right word? – flowing right now. When I see her work, when I see her act, even in life, what she gives is something that I’m aspiring to for myself. It’s new for us, so let it cook a bit," he added.

The Rockstar (2011) actor also admitted that he enjoys being in love, as it "comes with a lot of excitement." He said, "It’s a new person, it comes with new beats. Old tricks become new tricks again – you know, being charming and romantic, all of that." 

This is not the first time Kapoor has admitted to admiring the Raazi (2018) actress. In a 2017 interview with NDTV, a news channel, he spoke about the effects of working with her, "Well, I have a boy crush on her now." 

Over the last year, the two have been travelling across Europe, prepping for Ayan Mukerji's superhero film. It was the presence of Neetu Kapoor, Ranbir's mother, at Alia Bhatt's birthday celebrations in Bulgaria in March that raised some curiosity among industry insiders.

The two have always admired each other's roles and performances in the past. In a recent preview to BFFS with Vogue, Sonakshi Sinha and Manish Malhotra almost let the secret out. On being asked about the 'hook up of 2018', Malhotra replied, "Alia and Ranbir". The statement might have been made in jest, but it seemed to add to the speculations swirling around. 

With the latest interview, it seems that something is a brewing.
