Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, Bollywood’s beloved power couple, are under the spotlight once again. Their love story, spanning five years, culminated in a beautiful wedding one and a half years ago. The couple welcomed their first child, Raha, last November, and recently celebrated their first wedding anniversary in April.
While Alia shines in her acting career, including her recent National Award-winning performance in “Gangubai,” Ranbir has often faced criticism for his perceived influence over her choices, ranging from her attire to her voice.
Ranbir Kapoor, the known bollywood actor, has been the subject of netizens’ scrutiny in the past, and he’s unafraid to address the criticism head-on. Currently promoting his upcoming film, “Animal,” set for release in December, Ranbir Kapoor spoke to his fans through a video message.
“I am not on social media, so I don’t have to worry about it so much,” he stated. “But I think negative discussion is also needed. As an artist, I feel that I need both praise and criticism for my work. Only then a balance is maintained. Sometimes a lot of things are written about artists, which are their opinions. Not that my personality is based on that opinion. Some may like my work, some may not like it. But they own their opinion, not me.” – Ranbir Kapoor
i am on the side of the people who are fighting for the toxic masculinity, if they use me as the face of it, it's fine because their fight is bigger than just me feeling bad about them having an opinion about what i said— 𝙑amsi ♪ (@RKs_Tilllast) October 24, 2023
What a man you're #RanbirKapoor
Ranbir’s response to the recent controversy surrounding his opinions on Alia’s choices in lipstick showed a more balanced perspective. In a video she shared a few months ago, Alia revealed that she refrains from wearing lipstick unless it’s for acting, as Ranbir prefers her without it.
This revelation sparked criticism from a segment of netizens. However, Ranbir addressed the issue with a refreshing outlook, saying, “I was reading an article a few days ago, about my bad temper. And to be honest, I don’t have a problem with that. I would rather stand with those who oppose such practices. In that case, if they think to put forward their arguments based on me, I agree to that too. Because their fight is more important than my anger.”
The couple’s dynamic continues to fascinate the public, as they balance personal and professional lives while addressing public scrutiny with poise. Ranbir Kapoor’s support for Alia Bhatt is evident, highlighting the strength of their bond and love, despite the criticisms that periodically swirl around them.
