Speaking of herself and Ranbir, Alia added: “We were actually going to get married and that’s why we planned to move in together, but then the pandemic happened, so the planning couldn’t stop. So at least we wanted to move on and move we’ll figure out the rest, let it all sink in. Actually, we just planned it that way.”
