Alia Bhatt will have to skip her bestie Katrina Kaif’s wedding that is happening on December 9. The actress who shares a close bond with Kat and also with Vicky Kaushal, with whom she has starred in Raazi, has left everyone surprised by her absence. In fact, when she wrapped the schedule of Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani directed by Karan Johar, and was papped in Mumbai, she got massively trolled for not being invited for the wedding due to her relationship with Katrina's ex Ranbir Kapoor, with whom the Sooryavanshi actress' relationship had broken on an ugly note.
However, the truth is something else. The Gangubai Kathiawadi actress has a trailer launch to attend for her most ambitious project RRR that also marks her debut in the South industry. A close source to the Dear Zindagi actress reveals, “Alia Bhatt was invited by both Vicky and Katrina and was also very keen on attending the wedding in Ranthambore, however, she had already given her dates to be a part of the RRR trailer. Sadly, the launch was delayed by a few days and is happening now and so Alia couldn't help but miss the wedding”. The film is directed by Baahubali director SS Rajamouli.
ICYMI, Alia shares a great bond with Kat despite being the ladylove of Ranbir and both the actresses are mature to maintain the dignity of their relationships. In fact Alia and Karan Johar were one of the special guests of the wedding. Alia has even often expressed her admiration for Katrina in her interviews and on social media.
Alia will be attending the grand reception hosted by the couple in Mumbai though, as she is extremely close to both of them. Vicky played Alia’s better half in Raazi and his performance was highly praised by the critics as well as the audience.
Alia will also be seen in Jee Le Zaraa a road trip film directed by Farhan Akhtar that has Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra in leads along with her. The grand reception in Mumbai will have all the Bollywood biggies right from Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, to Aamir Kahn and many others except Salman Khan and Ranbir Kapoor. It is speculated that both the stars have chose to kept themselves away from this wedding due to obvious reason.
