Alia Bhatt has been basking in the success of her latest release Gangubai Kathiawadi. During a recent media interaction, Alia was asked about boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor's reaction to the film. To which, Alia Bhatt replied, "He has seen it. Sabko Ranbir ka response chahiye (everyone wants Ranbir's response). Unfortunately, he is not on social media, so he cannot speak about his response. I am going to try and convince him to give a byte for my movie. So that you get his response. How can I give his response?," India Today quoted Alia as saying.

After the film's trailer's release, Ranbir did the Gangubai Kathiawadi-style backward namaste pose during a session with the paparazzi. Later, Alia Bhatt posted a collage of her and Ranbir Kapoor doing the same pose on her Instagram story and she rote: "Best boyfriend ever."
