Actor Alia Bhatt, who tied the know with actor Ranbir Kapoor in April, will soon be changing her name to Alia Bhatt-Kapoor. The 'Darlings' actor shared that her screen name will always be Alia Bhatt, but she is going to change her name on her documents, including her passport. “I am happy to do it,” she told Mid-day.

When asked if she will change her name to Alia Bhatt-Kapoor, she replied in the affirmative. “I will and always will be Alia Bhatt. And now I am also a Kapoor,” she added.

Alia shared that she has been planning to do it for a while but she didn't get the chance because of her many international travels after marriage. Ranbir, on the other hand, “promptly” changed his marital status on his passport soon after the wedding. Talking about why she wants to change her name, Alia said, “We are going to have a child now. I don’t want to be the Bhatt, whilst the Kapoors are traveling together; you know what I mean? I don’t want to feel left out.”

Alia and Ranbir announced their pregnancy in June via Instagram. Sharing a photo from the hospital during her ultrasound, Alia wrote, “Our baby ….. coming soon ♾❤️✨” Alia and Ranbir got married in an intimate ceremony. They later hosted a wedding reception at their home

On the film front, Alia co-produced her first film under her banner Eternal Sunshine Productions recently. Titled Darlings, the film is currently streaming on Netflix.
