Is Alia Bhatt better as an actor compared to boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor?

When it comes to mainstream Bollywood films, we know that Alia Bhatt is counted as one of the most talented actresses of this generation. Apart from her acting, Alia has recently turned into a producer, adding another feather to her cap.

Often we compare outsiders of Bollywood with star kids, forgetting that they are actors first and we should gauge their abilities based on their skills, not based on their last name. Coming to Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, we know that both of them are Bollywood insiders or what we popularly call ‘star kids’. We often end up trolling star kids for their inability to act but Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt have certainly proved us otherwise.

While Ranbir Kapoor started his journey with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya, he opened himself for different types of characters, be it Bachna Ae Haseeno or be it Rockstar. Despite proving his versatility, his career has slowed down. On the other hand, Alia Bhatt was not fully appreciated during her debut film Student Of The Year, but she hit back with a phenomenal performance in Highway. After Highway, there was no looking back for her. Her performances in films like Dear Zindagi and Udta Punjab were critically praised. But, Alia hasn’t had a successful film since 2019, so her performance in Gangubai Kathiawadi is going to be crucial for her future in acting.

Do you think that Alia is one step ahead as an actress compared to her beau Ranbir Kapoor or do you think it’s the other way round?
