Rahul Bhatt has the privilege  of being the  only  brother  to  sisters Pooja , Shaheen  and Alia Bhatt.

Alia’s wedding on April 14 will be  attended only  by family members. Her stepbrother Rahul Bhatt being one  of  them. Speaking  on the impending wedding Rahul says, “Of course I  am  going to be  there  for all the  four days  of festivities and celebration. Mujhe jo bhi  bola jayega  main karne  ke liye haazir  hoon(I will be there  to  take care  of whatever I am  asked to). After all I am the bride’s only brother.”

Rahul confesses he is very fond  of his kid sister. “She is  a pudding. I am very  fond of her. I think she  is blessed. Look at her performance in  Gangubai Kathiawadiit’s worldclass, though my favourite Alia performances are  Highway, Udta Punjab and Gangubai Kathiawadi,in that  order.”

Rahul who is  a gym instructor confesses he watches  all of Alia’s films.He also admits that his troubled relationship with his father is  now mended.  “We have come to terms with one another, a bit late in the day. But  better late than  never. He  now calls me at least  10-11  times  a day to ask about me.I know we’ve been through  tumultuous times  in our relationship. But thank God we are now close friends.”
