Alia Bhatt, who recently embraced motherhood, opened up about her personal life and her equation with her actor-husband Ranbir Kapoor in her latest interview. Alia and Ranbir welcomed their daughter earlier this month, in November. In her conversation with a popular French publication, Alia shared that she is "a little concerned" about raising her daughter in the public eye.


Talking about her concerns for her child, the Gangubai Kathiawadi actor told Marie Claire Magazine, "I am a little concerned about bringing up a child in the public eye. I talk about it with my friends, with my family, and my husband a lot. I don’t want there to be a, sort of, intrusion into my child’s life. Because at the end of the day, I have chosen this path, but maybe my child may not want to choose this path when he or she grows that’s something that I feel very protective about.”

"I don’t think that’s something that I can really prepare and plan for. I don’t want to have any fixed ideas of how I want that to be. Because why should I have any expectations and then be met with any disappointment or elation or anything of that sort? So they need the slate blank, a bit," she further told the publication.

Alia also opened up about her equation with Ranbir in their recent film Brahmastra Part One: Shiva. Praising her husband and his work as an actor, she told Marie Claire Magazine, "(Ranbir) is one of the most accommodating, easy actors to work with. Always on time, always so giving to other actors. Extremely, extremely disciplined. And these are all attributes that I deeply admire, and I also believe I have the same. So, for us, this was a very comfortable working atmosphere. Something that I don’t even feel took a matter of five or seven minutes for us to start getting used to.”

Ranbir and Alia tied the knot earlier this year, on 14 April. The two started dating soon after they began shooting for filmmaker Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra Part One: Shiva.


Meanwhile, on the work front, Alia has several projects lined up in her kitty, including her Hollywood debut, Heart of Stone and Farhan Akhtar's Jee Le Zaraa, alongside Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra.
