Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt and her Brahmastra director Ayan Mukerji on Thursday visited a temple on the occasion of Maha Shivratri. The duo arrived at the temple to seek blessings for their upcoming film. They were without Ranbir Kapoor as the actor has tested positive for COVID19 and is in home-quarantine currently. Wearing an all-red traditional attire, Alia looked gorgeous while Ayan donned a white kurta. They also posed for paparazzi. After their visit, they were seen sporting the three lines of Tripuṇḍra in sandalwood on their foreheads.
In one of the videos going viral on the internet, the paparazzi asked Alia if she has wished for something special from Lord Shiva. The actress said, "Haan maanga par bata nahi sakti (I did but I cannot tell you what it is)."
