Ranbir-Alia Wedding Discussion Questions!

Well, it’s Ranbir and Alia’s wedding day. And this is so upsetting that FilmiKudhi sent me a video of her son fussing about it. He’s not even 6 months yet, and even he thinks it is a bad idea.

Okay, first question!

Is anyone in DCIB happy about this wedding? It’s okay, you can reveal yourself, we won’t shame you.

Second, am I the only one who is worried about Ayan Mukherjee?

Alia seems to have embraced the throuple, but still, kind of hurtful that Alia and Ranbir get a big public thing and he is excluded.

And final question which came up in my conversation with FilmiKudhi, totally hypothetical, would we be more upset if Kangana married Sid M than we are over this wedding? Or equally upset? Or less upset?

  1. Why would Kangana marry Sid M?!?!

    Okay, I think that above knee-jerk reaction shows that yes, I would be more upset. Oops.

    I’m not upset (to be fair, I’m very bad at caring about weddings), but I am confused. In my head, I still think of Alia as the SOTY, super young star, even though she’s done so much more. So I’m always a bit confused when I remember that she’s nearly 30 and a movie veteran.

    • EXACTLY! It’s a total hypothetical, but I think I managed to come up with the couple that would MOST upset DCIB. Protect our Sid M.

      Alia is a grown-up, I guess, but the age difference is sooooooooooo big!!!! She was little kid when he started acting, I can’t get my head around the idea of knowing someone as a 22 year old when you are 11, and then dating. Or what kind of dude dates someone they knew as an 11 year old.

      • Disclaimer: Large (10+ years) age differences in a couple really bother me, especially since they almost always seem to be of the older male-younger female configuration.

        Disclaimer 2: I’m indifferent to both Alia and Ranbir and have zero interest in their personal lives.

        All of which means that on principle I don’t care for the Alia-Ranbir coupling, but fairness compels me to point out that they aren’t the only ones in Bollywood with a large age gap. Kareena – Saif, Hema – Dharmendra, Dimple – Rajesh Khanna, Saira – Dilip, etc., all had similar or even larger age gaps. Shrug.

      • He started dating her as an adult and after she went through a couple of relationships, so I don’t think that’s necessarily bad. Even the age gap is ok to me.

        What is not ok is that she’s at the peak of her career, and he’s over the hill, and it seems like he’s clinging on to her.

          • Oh! Most recent thing DCIB got obsessed with, they HAVEN’T shot for the other 2. We all assumed they had, because what else were they doing for 5 years? But the post announcing the final shot of the first movie specifically said it was the final shot only for part 1. So I guess they could stop at this point and not move on to 2 adn 3?

            And I have that small thought in my mind that it is a Producers kind of situation where they are taking in more investment money then they can pay back in hopes of a flop.

  2. I would be concerned for anyone who married Kangana, still they would be aware upfront of what they are getting into. I don’t know about Alia and Ranbir, they both seem highly overrated and over hyped for two moderately talented, moderately attractive actors.I’m guessing Alia is very hard working. And I’m thinking she’ll need to be.

    • No no, Ranbir can support himself. He moved out of his Grandma’s house at age 35. So that’s a good sign, right? Just like Alia getting and paying for her own place when she was 23 (I am being sarcastic).

  3. They are getting married when she is at her peak & he is at his lowest. The pics look dreamy but mushy. He lifted & carried her inside after greeting the media- too filmy even for film stars. Also the whole thing feels like a giant ad for Brahmastra.

    • I just read this comment to my friend who told me “you know they are also having sex, right?” And it’s SO GROSS! I am sticking with, Alia and Ranbir never have sex, Ayan and Ranbir have sex and Alia is just his platonic emotional support. TOO GROSS.

  4. I’m haven’t been interested in the wedding at all, just happy that it’s over so those rumors and discussions stop. I’m not attached to either of them, so I’m not on anyone’s side and don’t have any opinions on whether it’s a good or bad thing. Kangana on the other hand – I pity whoever is with her.

  5. Ayaan is the one who is going to get most affected by this…I have an intuition that the brahmastra movie would not fare much because it looks outdated, the teasers…also actors look tired. Why Ayaan is stuck with this guy since so long? He could have made so many awesome fun n breezy movies if not for his obsession to Ranbir.
    Also I don’t find them good looking together. There is no chemistry, I don’t know I just can’t picture Ranbir n alia together. And do you know the current status of alia kat friendship? I mean do you think kat would not have told n reveal the mean Ranbir to Alia…i mean they were fast friends I knew. On the other side I feel Deepika is totally enjoying Alia’s upcoming helplessness hehe….which was very visible on the kwk episode…I mean in the whole episode Deepika was so amused by alia n ranbeer togetherness…she has that I know you will get dumped n hurt too face…..It’s a different kind of joy when your bad n narcissist ex go into another relationship n you knew the new girl is also just another project. Also, what are your views about Alia’s future prospect? Considering she is in a Kapoor household now.

    • I don’t think Ranbir will dump ALia. ALl these playboys slow down when they reach their ’40’s. Their drive slows down and they look to settle with someone who has fame/money/youth. He doesn’t have it in him to chase another skirt.
      I think it was good for Alia to marry into the Kapoor family. Once her market value decreases (which will be pretty soon), she will still be relevant and in the news since she is a Kapoor now. Aishwarya is an example, she would have been a has-been actress who people would have forgotten about if she wasn’t married to the Bachan family.

  6. If Kangana married Sid M. my reaction would be: I thought he is smarter than that. I wouldn’t be angry, just disappointed.
    Ranbir – Alia sitution is different because it’s like watching poor inocent mouse approach a mouse trap. You know it won’t end well.

        Important question: Am I the only one who thinks that wedding on the balcony was Ranbir’s idea? I imagine he was like: Ok, let’s marry but I warn you – I don’t want to leave my apartment, go to marriage halls and stuff. If you really have to organize something , make it here.

        • I thought that part at least was kind of nice. Kajol and Ajay got married on her parents’ balcony back in the day. It’s nice for a small home wedding, more pleasant to do the fire and stuff outside than in.

          Although now that you mention it, I ABSOLUTELY think you are right. Because it’s this odd combo of small balcony wedding and famous guests and paparazzi.

          • I’m a fan of nice, little weddings. Only you, your partner and the closest people who care for you (+good food of course). I’m sure their apartment is big but why marry there if there are millions of other places? Especially if you are a movie star. It’s not even a house, just apartment. It feels claustrophobic for me. But maybe they chose it to avoid inviting people? Ranbir dated so many actresses, it would be difficult to decide who should come and who shouldn’t.

        • It sounds quite cramped the whole thing. Also, am a little confused. Did they follow Christian rituals or Hindu rituals, or a mix of both?

          Not that it should matter, but the wedding pics were a little confusing, and I am trying to imagine these two people, their closest relatives, and a priest all standing in a balcony. If it was a Hindu wedding, there would be the sacred fire and doing the pheras and everything.

          It would have to be a pretty big balcony.

  7. Yes. Yes I would be more upset if Sid M married Kangana. I’m not a fan of Ranbir and Alia getting married, but it’s not something I’m going to dwell on too much. I won’t watch an Alia Bhatt film and say “why did she marry Ranbir.”
    But, I will watch Sid M and think “why in the world would he marry that woman.”

  8. Oh my God, my reaction was the same as townsandtulips! You should have put a trigger warning on this post! My heart rate is still elevated! If Kangana goes anywhere near my little Sid I will go to India and fight her!

    I’m trying to look on the bright side. I don’t think it will last, and I think Alia will emerge stronger and wiser and ready to find a lasting love. (I’m sort of imagining a Dimple Kapadia type deal). But I think it’s going to be a roller coaster for her until then.

    • I will hold on to that thought! Alia is just having a youthful learning experience. And she will get out of this and go back to Sid M, which will also save Sid M from the possibility of Kangana.

    • Trigger warning..
      I disagree. Dimple was 15 when she got married, was from a non-filmy family who naively got into marriage with an arrogant wayward superstar. She didn’t know the workings of the film industry marriages and had no clue what she was getting into. She expected a fairy tale marriage. Instead what she got was a drunkard with a temper, who was past his prime, whose films were becoming duds at the B.O and who treated her shabbily and left her alone to be with his flings.
      Also, she is very impulsive ( typical gemini).

      Alia on the other hand is 29 years old for gods’ sake, knows the ins and outs of filmy families, knows what to expect, and she won’t be surprised if Ranbir strays (her dad and dad-in-law all have a history of straying). She would hold on to this marriage, no matter what happens, bcoz she would want her kids to grow up with a father figure around, bcoz she didn’t have one when she was growing up. A lot of film kids like Twinkle, Kajol etc who grew up without a father have talked about this in the past. I don’t think ALia would want to be another overworked, underpaid single mum like Soni Razdan.
      Also, a statement by Ranbirs’ mother Neetu has been circulating on the net. It is about her talking about how she doesn’t mind her husband having affairs as long as he comes back to her at the end of the day and is married to her. This is the attitude of a lot of star wives married to rich money bags with famous surnames.

      Kapoor surname is a big deal. Why do you think every other girl was making a beeline to be Ranbir’s gf?
      ALia is very intelligent (going by her choice of roles, and interviews). She would never give up on this marriage.
      Also, Ranbir has already had all the fun and is too old to chase anyone else. He already looks tired and haggard. After the flop of brahmastra, he will cling more to Alias’ youth/star value/ fame, etc. And he has too many female figures (mom, sis, cousins, grandma) in his life to keep him in tow.

  9. I’m so biased, because I’m probably the biggest Alia fan on the blog, but I can’t NOT be happy for her, if that makes sense. I’ve never liked Ranbir, and I’ve never liked them together, don’t get me wrong. But all the photos I’ve seen from all the ceremonies (where are the haldi pics??) she looks overjoyed, truly the happiest I’ve ever seen her. And Ranbir is weirdly affectionate, which gives me hope. Granted, I have no idea how he acted with Dips and Kat during those times, but maybe she’s actually changing him? Idk, my friend is being super negative about the whole thing because she doesn’t like them either, and it’s bringing me down. I can’t be upset about what’s clearly a happy time. I’m happy for Alia specifically, Alia only, and I really wish them all the best.

    But if Sid M married Kangana, I would drop everything, book a first class ticket to Delhi, track him down, smack him upside the head and shake him vigorously, screaming WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU directly in his face. Would unstan. He’s smart enough not to get sucked into her shenanigans. No way would they have any relationship whatsoever.
