Actor Ranbir Kapoor is currently promoting his late father Rishi Kapoor's last film Sharmaji Namkeen, which releases tomorrow. However, while he's doing press for a film that's not his, the one question Ranbir is being asked is related to his personal life – when are he and girlfriend Alia Bhatt getting married. Speaking to NDTV, Ranbir Kapoor said, "I won't give out a date during a media interaction. But Alia and I have all the intentions of getting married soon, so yes, hopefully soon."

"Soon" could be as early as next month, the Internet thinks. While Ranbir Kapoor declined to offer a date, rumours of an April wedding have spread like wildfire.

The Kapoors aren't telling. Asked about the April wedding rumours, Ranbir's aunt Rima Jain, who is Rishi Kapoor's sister, told Pinkvilla, "Nothing that I know of as yet. They will get married but I don't know when. They will decide and then suddenly you'll will all get to know. Nothing like this. Hum log ne kuch prepare hi nahin kiya toh shaadi kaise itni jaldi hogi (We haven't prepared anything yet, so how will the wedding happen so soon?). It will be shocking for me also if it's true. Wedding will definitely happen, but I don't know when."

Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor, who co-star in upcoming film Brahmastra, have been dating since 2018 when they began filming together. They made their first public appearance as a couple at Sonam Kapoor's wedding reception the same year.

Refreshingly, both actors have been candid about their romance and plans to marry. Ranbir said in an interview with film critic Rajeev Masand that the wedding would have already taken place but for the pandemic; reminded of what he said, Alia Bhatt recently told NDTV, "In my head, I am married to Ranbir, in fact, I am married to Ranbir in my head for a long time."

Alia has already starred in two big films this year – Gangubai Kathiawadi and RRR. She and Ranbir will be seen together in the first part of Brahmastra, which is a trilogy, this September. The film co-stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy.
