Alia Bhatt opens up about daughter Raha’s career path and it's not what you think.
Alia Bhatt, who is a proud mother of her eight-month-old daughter Raha Kapoor, has revealed her career aspirations for her baby girl. The actress, who is married to Ranbir Kapoor, said that she wants Raha to become a scientist, not an actor.
Alia Bhatt made this statement while attending an event along with Ranveer Singh and Karan Johar. The trio was promoting their upcoming film, Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, which is directed by Karan Johar.
While interacting with the students at the event, Alia Bhatt opened up about her daughter, stating that she feels Raha will grow up to become a scientist. "When I look at my daughter, I just say, 'Tu toh scientist banegi," Alia said while laughing over it. Her remarks were welcomed with loud applause from the audience.
Alia Bhatt's statement about her daughter's career choice has gone viral on social media and has received mixed reactions from netizens. While some praised Alia for not imposing her own dreams on Raha and letting her choose her own path, others trolled Alia for being unrealistic and hypocritical. Some also joked that Raha will end up becoming an actor and play a scientist's role in a film.
Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor welcomed their daughter Raha on November 6, 2022. The couple got married in April 2022 in an intimate ceremony in Mumbai. Raha is their first child together.
