RanbirKapoor was working as an assistant to filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali on the sets of ‘Black’ and that’s where he crossed paths with Alia, who had come to audition for the movie.
“I was auditioning for a young Rani Mukerji. I didn’t get it obviously because I am not in the film. But fun fact it was the first time I also met my now husband (Ranbir Kapoor),” Alia shared. ‘Black’ released in 2005 and starrer Amitabh Bachchan and Rani Mukerji in the lead roles. The couple went on to share the frame in ‘Brahmastra: Part One -Shiva’ and got hitched in April, 2022. Ranbir and Alia also welcomed daughter, Raha, in 2022.
Directed by Tom Harper, ‘Heart of Stone’ is an action packed entertainer and features Alia as Keya Dhawan, the antagonist. Speaking about the experience, Alia had told Netflix, “I did enjoy the antagonist part. I will not lie. What was amazing about working with Gal is that she takes everybody’s opinions as importantly as she would take her own.”
