We all know that Alia Bhatt has forever been a huge fan of actor Ranbir Kapoor. In a recent interview with Firstpost, Alia revealed that she even pleaded with director Ayan Mukerji to cast her opposite Ranbir in his upcoming film, Brahmastra. ''The idea for Brahmastra was conceived long back when Ayan had just done Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. I wanted to work with him and I have always wanted to work with Ranbir as well. I pleaded to Ayan that please cast me with him,'' she said.

When asked about the experience of working with Ranbir Kapoor, Alia replied, "With Ranbir, it is a completely different experience because I have always admired him. He is my favourite actor since he made his debut. He will always remain my favourite because he is so honest and effortless."

''When I set to work with him, I was thinking that I will understand his process of acting, but there’s no process. He is like me, he acts in front of the camera, and suddenly off camera, he is seen eating chocolates, or chatting, wanting to know what is the gossip for the day. He is very hard working, so effortless and that is the beauty,'' she added.

Brahmastra also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna Akkineni and Mouni Roy, is set to hit the screens this Christmas. She will be also seen in Karan Johar’s directorial, Takht. After that she has her father Mahesh Bhatt’s Sadak 2. Ranbir, on the other hand, has gangster drama Shamshera in the pipeline.
