Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt Have Unveiled their Daughter Raha’s Face for the First Time
Bollywood’s beloved couple, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, were spotted with their daughter, Raha Kapoor, as they headed for the Kapoor family’s Christmas lunch. It marked the first public appearance of the couple with their toddler.
Dressed in delightful festive attire, Raha and her mother, Alia, joined by the star of “Animal,” graciously posed for photographers. The one-year-old is said to bear a remarkable resemblance to her late grandfather, Rishi Kapoor, according to Indian media reports.
Raha, like her cousins Taimur, Jeh, and Inaya, has captivating colored eyes – however, hers are blue.
Although this is the initial outing where the couple has introduced their daughter to the public, they had previously chosen to keep their first child away from the limelight. Alia had previously shared her concerns during an episode of Koffee With Karan season 8, alongside Kareena Kapoor Khan, expressing her distress when her daughter’s pictures were leaked on social media.
Reflecting on the incident, Alia revealed, “I remember feeling really upset when a picture of her got out during our shoot in Kashmir for ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani’. It was a particularly challenging schedule for me because it was my first time shooting after giving birth. Despite what anyone says, it takes a long time for your body to recover.”
Alia continued, “I wasn’t getting enough sleep, managing feeding sessions, and rushing between shoots. I called Ranbir, and he graciously rescheduled his work to come and pick her up.”
The Darlings star shared her mixed emotions, stating, “Although it was a relief for me, it was also the first time I had to be separated from Raha, and I felt terribly guilty. The guilt persisted, and a day and a half later when I returned, I saw a picture that showed a glimpse of her face, and it completely shattered me.”
Highlighting her protective instincts, Alia clarified, “I realized my breakdown wasn’t just because I didn’t want people to see her face. When we meet people, Ranbir and I encourage blessings for Raha, we encourage her to greet with ‘namaste’ and so on. We’re proud of our baby. But at that time, it was a surge of multiple emotions, and I am fiercely protective of my loved ones. I was simply exhausted and overwhelmed.”
