Ranbir and Alia finally reveal daughter Raha’s face

Bollywood’s sweethearts Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt were papped with their daughter, Raha Kapoor, by the awaiting photographers ahead of the Kapoor family’s Christmas lunch on Monday. This is the first time the couple has publicly stepped out with their toddler. 

Donning adorable festive outfits, Raha and mum Alia along with the Animal star, posed for the paparazzi. The one-year-old bears a striking resemblance to her late grandfather, Rishi Kapoor, as per the Indian media. Raha, like her cousins Taimur, Jeh and Inaya, also has adorable coloured eyes – hers, however, are blue. 

While this is the first time the couple showed face to the public for the first time, the couple had earlier maintained their stance on keeping their firstborn away from the public eye. Alia, while appearing on the episode of Koffee With Karan season 8 along with Kareena Kapoor Khan, shared her two cents on the matter. The Gangubai Kathiawadi star revealed that she broke down when her daughter’s pictures were leaked on social media. 

During his appearance, host Karan asked the renowned actor, “I think she (Alia) is very fiercely protective of her (Raha). Why is that?” To this, Alia replied, “At that time I remember basically I felt like a picture came out of hers, and it was our schedule in Kashmir for Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani. It was a very, very difficult schedule for me because it was my first time shooting after giving birth. And no matter what anybody says, it takes really long for your body to bounce back.”

She furthered, “I wasn’t sleeping at night, I was feeding, I was rushing in between shoots. So I called Ranbir and I told him I was finding it very difficult so he pushed his work and said ‘Don’t worry, I’m going to come and pick her up.’

The Darlings star went on, “It was very relaxing for me but it was also the first time I was separating from (Raha) so I felt very guilty. So that guilt carried on and it was just one and a half days later that I travelled back and I saw a photo where the side of her face was kind of visible and I just broke down.”

Adding that she’s just being protective of her loved ones, Alia said, “And I realise I wasn’t breaking down just because I didn’t want people to see her face. When we meet people Ranbir and I are like please give her your blessings, Raha do namaste, this that. We are proud of our baby. But it was too many emotions put together and I’m so protective of my loved ones that I was just like, oh god I don’t want that conversation. But I realise I was just exhausted and overwhelmed at that time.”
