Alia Bhatt’s personal life has been under scrutiny for quite some time now. First, there were rumors of her breaking up with Sidharth Malhotra, followed by reports of her dating Ranbir Kapoor. The actress is currently shooting with Ranbir in Bulgaria for their upcoming film Brahmastra, which has added fuel to the fire.

In an interview with Hindustan Times, the actress finally addressed the rumours. “Even I get really confused when I read such things, but I strongly believe that ‘silence is golden,'” Alia stated. “It’s not as if I’m never going to have a personal life. I will and I do have one, but I feel it’s called ‘personal’ for a reason. That’s why it will always stay close to me. I am fine; people can say whatever, as I don’t get bothered by such stories. May be except when you feel something really random has been written. I just hope people don’t think that this is all I am doing in life.”

Alia, who turns 25 today, is currently working on films Raazi, Gully Boy and Brahmastra. She will be celebrating her birthday with her team and co-stars in Bulgraria, where she is currently shooting. As a special treat for her fans, her mentor Karan Johar shared her look from Raazi on Twitter earlier today:
