Celesti Bairagey regularly posts on Instagram, either taking part in professional shoots or capturing candid moments.
The comments are in reference to her resemblance to Alia Bhatt or praising her beauty, with many referring to Celesti as “cute”.
Meanwhile, Alia Bhatt provides her fans with an insight into her life away from the camera.
In one picture, Alia posted a picture of herself holding a leaf. Her face was covered by the leaf and the caption read:
“The little things.”
However, netizens spotted Alia wearing a ring on her ring finger with the number 8 on it, which is the lucky number of her boyfriend, Ranbir Kapoor.
This fuelled rumours that they will be getting married soon. It is speculated that they will tie the knot in December 2021.
Reacting to the rumours, Alia’s mother Soni Razdan said:
“Well, there’s a lot of time left. It’ll happen sometime in the future, and that’s a long way off.
“Now, when it’ll happen, I don’t know.
“Maybe, you’ll have to call Alia’s agent for that, but even her agent might not know.”
Alia has several projects in the pipeline including Brahmastra, Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, Gangubai Kathiawadi, RRR and Jee Le Zaraa among others.
