Mumbai: Alia Bhatt has left her fans amused by what looks like a pregnancy announcement. The ‘Raazi’ actor shared a cryptic post shared this morning captioned, “Our baby ….. coming soon.” The photo accompanying the caption shows what looks like Alia on a hospital bed and husband Ranbir Kapoor, pictured from behind, looking at the results of the ultrasound on the monitor.

The result has been obscured by a red heart and the next photo in the post is one of a lion, lioness and a cub. The post has been flooded with comments congratulating Alia and Ranbir as well as some suggesting it might be a promotional activity for the couple’s new film Brahmastra.
Comments from Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor’s family and friends indicate that this might straight up be a pregnancy announcement. “Congratulations mama and papa lion,” wrote Alia’s mother Soni Razdan.
Ranbir’s sister Riddhima left a string of hearts in the comments thread. “Congratulations honey! Yaaay! Can’t wait,” wrote Priyanka Chopra. “Heart is bursting,” wrote Alia’s mentor Karan Johar.
Alia and Ranbir’s Brahmastra co-star Mouni Roy wrote: “Om Nama Shivaay, immensely happy.”
Not everyone took Alia Bhatt’s post at face value. “It’s a strategy to promote Brahmastra,” read one fan comment. “Is this for a movie or something,” read another.
Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor married on April 14 after dating for several years. They began a romance after being cast in Brahmastra, directed by Ayan Mukerji, and attended Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s wedding reception in 2018 as a couple.
Brahmastra is a mythology-based fantasy in three parts also starring Amitabh Bachchan and Nagarjuna. The first film in the trilogy releases on September 9.
