Love, love, love Alia and Ranbir."
Alia Bhatt also shared on social media that the little one's name was chosen by Neetu Kapoor. Sharing an image, Alia Bhatt said: “The name Raha (chosen by her wise and wonderful Dadi) has so many beautiful meanings...Raha, in its purest form, means divine path. In Swahili, she is joy. In Sanskrit, Raha is a clan. In Bangla - rest, comfort, relief. In Arabic peace, it also means happiness, freedom and bliss. And true to her name, from the first moment we held her - we felt it all. Thank you, Raha, for bringing our family to life, it feels as though our lives have only just begun.”
