Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor tied the knot in April last year, and welcomed their daughter Raha in November. Since then, the two have been juggling work and parenting duties, with one parent staying with the child.
Now, in a recent interview, Alia Bhatt has opened up about motherhood, and how she and Ranbir called Raha a cheetah. Speaking to Vogue India, Alia praised her husband and said, “The Ranbir I know has always been very sensitive, loyal and supportive. But he has become even more sensitive since Raha was born. He absolutely dotes on her."
She also joked that Ranbir looks like a giant, when carrying Raha in his arms. “It’s adorable to watch the two of them together because he’s had to bulk up quite a bit for his character in ‘Animal’, so when he carries her, it’s like this giant picking up a little puppy. Ranbir is such a hands-on father at home that it sometimes gets difficult for me to even hold her for a second. And he’s got very unique ways of hanging out with Raha—he likes to sit with her in front of the window where the breeze comes in and make sure she spends a good amount of time looking at the big green plant there. He thinks of her as this earthly sprite. He’s travelling at the moment, so I try to recreate that same routine with Raha because Ranbir’s constantly nervous that she’ll forget him.”
The actress even called Raha ‘well-behaved and peaceful’, and added how there’s always this pressure on working women to strike a balance between work and motherhood. She revealed that she ‘works hard’ towards not judging herself and even goes to therapy to 'voice those fears'.
On the work front, she will next be seen in ‘Heart of Stone’, ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani’, and ‘Jee Le Zaraa’.
