Dive In


I boast a lot that I am very independent and detached, but in reality, I am very dependent on her. I don’t go to the bathroom or eat if I don’t know where Alia is. It is very important for me to have her next to me. It doesn’t matter if we don’t do anything romantic or even talk but she should just sit next to me.

That’s Ranbir Kapoor explaining how “dependent” he is on his spouse Alia Bhatt. The quote went viral, freaking out feminists and raising serious questions about his bathroom habits lol. Hey, it’s a Monday. We need all the entertainment we can get.
