The 'Gangubai Kathiawadi' actor opened up that although her friends told her that she and Ranbir "were totally going to get together" she wanted the process to "happen naturally". "We both talked about it on our flight to Tel Aviv to do a workshop on Brahmastra. So, I remember him walking in and he was supposed to sit next to me. He sat next to me. Something got stuck in his seat, some malfunction was happening in his seat so they were going to move him to another seat. And I was like, 'Why is my dream getting shattered?" disclosed Alia.
"But then his seat got fixed, so he came and sat back. And then when we exchanged notes.." added Alia before going to explain that Ranbir was quite irritated that the seat had to "break down at that moment" when the duo was seated together 'nicely'.
The actress further revealed how Ranbir had planned to propose to her which absolutely blew away her mind, in a place that the star couple had a "strong connection with". Both Ranbir and Alia agreed to just "go with the feeling" "That's exactly what he did. He didn't tell anyone, he just carried the ring and he did it in the most amazing place because it's a place that we both have a strong connection with, which is Masai Mara. And in the middle of the jungle, it was just amazing," confessed Alia.
However, after the proposal Alia got the surprise of her life when Ranbir 'managed to take pictures' of the whole act, especially knowing Alia's love for pictures.
For the unversed, Alia and Ranbir got married on April 14 this year. Soon after, Alia took to Instagram and announced the happy news that she was pregnant.
