Alia Bhatt visits Shiv temple, asks for ‘something special’

Alia-Bhatt

Alia Bhatt was spotted along with filmmaker Ayan Mukerji offering prayers to Lord Shiva at the Mukteshwar Temple in Juhu on the occasion of Maha Shivratri.

The actress was dressed in traditional attire, in a bright red suit with a matching mask, during her temple visit on Thursday night. Asked to take off the mask for paparazzi, the actress indulged rather reluctantly.”It is not fair to take off the mask even for spotting,” she said.

With her rumoured boyfriend having tested Covid positive, did she ask for something special? Did she pray for health and recovery perhaps?

“I have asked for something special but cannot share it with you,” she replied.

Ranbir, who recently tested positive for Covid-19, has been receiving treatment at home, in isolation.

Incidentally, it has been rumoured for a while that Alia and Ranbir are set to tie the knot and get an apartment in Pali Hills soon. The duo was spotted at the construction site together last month.

Meanwhile, Alia shared a social media note on Thursday assuring fans that as she has tested negative, and that she would resume work.

Her note on Instagram stories had read: “I’ve been reading all your messages of concern and care. I have tested negative for Covid-19 and after isolating and speaking with my doctors, I am back to work from today. Thank you all for all your good wishes! I am taking care and staying safe. You please do the same. Love to you all!”

At the temple with Alia, friend and filmmaker Ayan Mukerji was seen in white kurta and pyjamas. The priest at the mandir had applied three lines of Tripundra in sandalwood on their foreheads.

Media giant Ekta Kapoor also visited the same temple, but of course a little later.

“On January 27, the session will be on mental health, while on January 28, which happens to be her birthday, the session will be on Women in Films and Media. On January 29, the topic will be Sustainability in Fashion.

“Through these live sessions, Shruti wants to draw attention towards topics that are usually brushed under the carpet or aren’t discussed as often as they should be. All of the live sessions will have Shruti along with various influencers and hosts discussing these topics at length in an attempt to normalise these conversations in our day-to-day life.”

Commenting on the same, Shruti said: “The idea behind the live sessions is to open up a discussion on these topics. There are many ways to celebrate one’s birthday but my idea of a celebration is to open honest discussions, especially about the things I care about and believe need more talking.

“My aim is to let more people in on these topics, get varied perspectives from others during the live and open up these issues for others to think, discuss, share and debate.”
