In a recent interview with Mid-Day, Rishi Kapoor opened up about wanting to see Ranbir getting married soon, so he can have a bunch of grandchildren to play with. 'It is high time he got married. I settled down when I was 27, 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,' the 65-year old actor told Mid-Day.
'I haven't been vocal about it, but my wife [Neetu Kapoor] keeps bringing it up with him and he just brushes the question away. Whenever he is ready for it, we will be happy. Our happiness lies in his happiness, after all,' he added.
He also says that he understands that it would be a difficult task to find someone suitable enough to marry, since Ranbir doesn’t spend much time socialising. “Actors have blinkers on and are focused on their work. The only women they meet are the actresses. They don't socialise as much; that is the flipside of life in the movies,' he said.
Speaking of socializing with actresses, word still isn’t out as to whether Ranbir and Brahmastra co-star Alia are actually dating, with Alia herself having been pretty cagey about it and Ranbir talking about the supposed relationship to GQ Magazine a few months ago. Alia and Neetu Kapoor even share a mutual admiration for each other, and often compliment each other on social media.
On being asked about the suspected romance between the two, Rishi Kapoor said 'Jo hai woh hai, sabko pata hai. I don't need to say anything more.' Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra, starring Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Amitabh Bachchan, is slated for an Independence Day release, 15 August, 2019.
