From the past few days, rumours have been rife that things are not at all okay between Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt. The Bollywood actors recently worked together in Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy (2019), a film that is India's official entry to the Oscars - in the Best International Feature Film category for the 92nd Academy Awards. Ranveer and Alia share an amicable rapport with each other. Be it on the sets or during the promotional events, the duo looked every bit comfortable around each other. So what brought the distance between them?
A few days ago, a report suggested that director Sanjay Leela Bhansali had approached Ranveer Singh for a special appearance in his film Gangubai. The report also mentioned that Ranveer Singh had turned down the request of SLB, leaving Alia Bhatt, who is part of the film, quite upset.
However, the latest report suggests that Ranveer Singh was not approached for Gangubai and his equation with Alia Bhatt has not been affected.
Pinkvilla quotes a source as saying, "Alia's film with SLB has never had Ranveer in the mix. So, there is no question of him doing a cameo in this project. SLB and Ranveer are the most loved, most successful and most acclaimed director-actor combinations of this era - the trade and audience are waiting in anticipation to know when they will join forces again."
This clearly means that there's no bad blood between Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt.
On the work front, Ranveer Singh and Bhatt Alia have already signed Takht, in which they will share screen space for the second time. The film will be helmed by Karan Johar. Takht also features Bollywood actors Kareena Kapoor Khan, Vicky Kaushal, Anil Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar.
Apart from Takht, Ranveer Singh will be seen in Kabir Khan's film '83 with wife Deepika Padukone, while Alia Bhatt will be seen in Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra opposite her current boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor.
