Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra‘s relationship has been a talking point for quite a while now. The duo made their Bollywood debut together in Karan Johar’s Student of the Year and ever since then, rumours of them dating each other have emerged even though neither party has ever confirmed nor denied their relationship status. When Soni Razdan, Alia’s mother, was asked if her daughter’s rumoured relationship worries her, she mentioned, “Why should it (link-up) take away from her work? Why should any friendship take away from her hard work? Nobody is saying she is wasting her time with Sidharth and coming late on the sets or going early. She loves her work, she is a confident and hard-working girl. She is a young, normal girl. When she is free, it is her choice how she spends her time. Who she goes out with is her prerogative. Why can’t she have a nice social life?”

On Alia’s marriage plans, Soni added, “Alia has been very busy with her work. The last thing we will be talking at this point in her career will be about marriage. I am sure she has got no such idea in her head. It is very far from the topic of conversation. It is a topic you talk about when it is time.” (ALSO READ – 9 pictures that prove Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt are FINALLY enjoying paparazzi attention on their relationship)

On the work front, Alia will start shooting for Ayan Mukerji’s Dragon opposite Ranbir Kapoor soon. She will also be kickstarting Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boys opposite Ranveer Singh during the same time. Sidharth, on the other hand, is gearing up for the release of Reload, while also working on the Ittefaq remake and Aiyaary.
