Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt came together at the Lokmat Maharashtrian of the Year Awards ceremony yesterday in Mumbai where the two stars were awarded for their contribution to the world of entertainment.
Upon receiving the award, when Ranbir Kapoor was asked which film of Alia’s he found the most impressive, he replied, “Highway.” But the biggest compliment from Ranbir to Alia came when RK said that Alia Bhatt is the Amitabh Bachchan of Bollywood today.
Alia Bhatt starred in three films in 2016, Kapoor & Sons, Udta Punjab and Dear Zindagi. Despite receiving critical acclaim for her roles, Alia Bhatt did not win the National Award for Best Actor (Female) this year.
When asked on her feelings about the same, Alia said, “Please don’t feel bad. I am not going anywhere. There is lot of time. I did not feel bad so even you don’t feel bad about it.”
On a lighter note, Ranbir Kapoor was asked that if he had to give ministry portfolios to actors in Bollywood, who would get what. Ranbir chose…
Amitabh Bachchan for Finance
Hrithik Roshan for Home
Priyanka Chopra for External Affairs
Tiger Shroff for Defense
Shah Rukh Khan for Railways, since he helps heroines catch the train (as we have seen in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Chennai Express).
