Alia Bhatt turned a mundane Monday morning into a bright one for her fans as she announced her pregnancy news on social media. Industry friends and family members are pouring congratulatory wishes and blessings for Alia and Ranbir Kapoor. Everyone is excited to welcome the new member into the family. Amidst this, an old interview of the late actor Rishi Kapoor is surfacing online where he talked about his desire of spending time with Ranbir’s kids.
Back in 2018, the late actor in an interview with Mid-day stated that he wants to spend time with his grandchildren before he is gone. Rishi was quoted saying, “It is high time he got married. I settled down when I was 27, and Ranbir is 35. So he should think about marriage. He can marry anyone of his choice; we don't have any objection to it. I want to spend time with my grandchildren before I am gone.”Clearly, the actor’s last wish was to spend some beautiful time with his grandchildren and if he would have been alive, Alia’s pregnancy news would have filled his heart with joy and excitement.
