Alia played an Indian spy in Meghna Gulzar-directed Raazi, which earned over Rs 122 crores in seven weeks. In Highway, the actress played the daughter of a rich businessman, who gets kidnapped and how her life changes after the incident.
The 65-year-old actor, who was last seen in 102 Not Out with Amitabh Bachchan, also said that Alia Bhatt may have been "lucky" with the offers she's received but there's no doubt about her "talent". "One has to be lucky enough to get such parts. Alia has been lucky and of course, she has the talent too," Rishi Kapoor told Hindustan Times. Rishi Kapoor and Alia Bhatt also had a cute little Twitter exchange last month, when Mr Kapoor tweeted about working with the "talented Bhatt family."

Meanwhile, Alia Bhatt is rumoured to be dating Rishi Kapoor's son Ranbir Kapoor. The duo are co-stars of Ayan Mukerji's upcoming film Brahmastra. Rishi Kapoor's interview arrived just a day after he met Alia on Wednesday night. She joined Ranbir and Sanjay Dutt for a get-together at Rishi and Neetu Kapoor's home. Apart from script reading sessions, Alia is also often spotted with Ranbir in and around Mumbai - she recently attended a family dinner with the Kapoors and was photographed walking out hand-in-hand with Ranbir's niece Samara.
We also got to know that Alia Bhatt gets along well with Ranbir's sister Riddhima and mom Neetu Kapoor. Riddhima, who is a jewellery designer, recently gifted a bracelet to Alia, which the actress "loved." Neetu Kapoor and Alia Bhatt often comment on each other's Instagram posts. Ahead of the release of Raazi, Neetu Kapoor said Alia was every bit "gorgeous" in a photo she shared on Instagram. Neetu Kapoor also attended Alia's birthday celebrations in Bulgaria, where she was shooting for Brahmastra.
Meanwhile, Neetu Kapoor happens to be the "biggest fan" of Ranbir's work. "My mother is my biggest fan, whatever I do she loves. When she saw Bombay Velvet she thought it was the greatest film in the world," he told PTI.
On the work front, Rishi Kapoor has two upcoming films, Mulk and Rajma Chawal in the pipeline. Last seen in Raazi, Alia Bhatt has Gully Boy and Brahmastra in the pipeline.
