Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor are gearing up to welcome their first child by the end of this year. The actress announced the news in June. Soon after the news broke out, netizens criticised Alia for getting pregnant before marriage. Now, in the latest interview with a news portal, her sister Shaheen Bhatt reacted to the trolling and criticism.
"I will not speak for her (Alia) because that is her own journey. Anything that she has dealt with internally is completely her journey. Having said that, you can never really please everybody. There is always going to be a negative comment or two out there. And I think living in the public eye, we are all very practised at knowing what to pay heed to and what not to focus on," Shaheen told.
She further added, "It has been a wonderful year for our family in that sense. It has grown tremendously this past year. There is only more joy and happiness to come our way and I am looking forward to that."
Alia and Ranbir got married in April after dating for 5 years. Just two months after their marriage, the big announcement dropped in. On October 5, the Bhatts and Kapoors reunited for Alia's baby shower at her and Ranbir's residence.
