On the personal front, he is currently in a relationship with Alia Bhatt and has openly confessed his love for her a number of times. In an interview with GQ magazine in May 2018 Ranbir said, "It’s really new right now, and I don’t want to overspeak. It needs time to breathe and it needs space. As an actor, as a person, Alia is – what’s the right word? – flowing right now. When I see her work, when I see her act, even in life, what she gives is something that I’m aspiring to for myself. It’s new for us, so let it cook a bit."
