New Delhi: Did Ranbir Kapoor just confirm that he's dating Alia Bhatt? He sort of did. "It's really new right now, and I don't want to over speak," he told GQ in his interview for GQ India June 2018 issue. "It needs time to breathe and it needs space," added the Sanju actor. About his bonding with Alia, Ranbir said: "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." Ranbir, who opened up about the previously speculated relationship (which now appears to have been confirmed, yay!) for the first time, also added that would like more time for them to grow as a couple before talking about it more: "It's new for us, so let it cook a bit," he said.

Ranbir, who previously dated his Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani co-star Deepika Padukone and then Katrina Kaif, with whom he last co-starred in Jagga Jasoos, said that a new relationship is always synonymous with "a lot of excitement". "It's a new person, it comes with new beats," he said in the interview. "Old tricks become new tricks again - you know, being charming and romantic, all of that. I think I'm more balanced today. I value relationships more. I can appreciate hurt and what it does to a person much more than I could a couple years back," he added.
