All eyes were on Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, after Ranbir Kapoor confirmed his relationship with Alia Bhatt last week as folks couldn’t wait for her reaction. Well, it’s all good people because Deepika knew about Ranbir’s progression way before us and is happy about it as well, reports The Times Of India.

Ranbir and Deepika separated after dating for three years but continue to remain good friends. Awkwardness doesn’t exist between both of them as sources told a film site, according to TOI, that Ranbir still confides in the 32-year-old actress and had informed her about his relationship with Alia at the very beginning of it.

Deepika is “happy with the new development,” read a report in TOI. Last week, Ranbir addressed a question on reports of his relationship with Alia Bhatt during an interview with GQ India, and said: “It’s really new right now, and I don’t want to over speak. It needs time to breathe and it needs space.”

Ranbir is all praises for Alia. “As an actor, as a person, Alia is — what’s the right word — flowing right now. When I see her work, when I see her act, even in life, what she gives is something that I’m aspiring to for myself,” Ranbir told GQ India.

Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s linkup rumours started coming out in media after their constant public appearances. Last month, Ranbir watched Alia’s new film Raazi in Mumbai and exited the theatre with her while both of them were also spotted at the screening of Deepika’s January release Padmaavat.

Rumours turned rampant after both of them entered Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s Mumbai reception together on May 8. But, finally, we have an answer now. Workwise, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt are working together on Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra. It will release next year.

Ranbir is currently gearing up for the release of Sanju – in which he stars as Sanjay Dutt – scheduled for June 29.
