Mumbai: Crossing paths with your ex-lovers can get tricky, ask Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra. Both actors were seeing each other before calling it quits and Alia soon moved over to Ranbir Kapoor. Sources indicate that Sidharth and Alia are not exactly the best of friends any more.
“Ever since Alia started dating Ranbir, Sidharth has chosen to not stay in touch with her. He tries his best to avoid Alia and makes sure to time his entry and exit to avoid bumping into her. Even on Kuch Kuch Hota Hai‘s 20th anniversary bash, Sidharth stayed on only after learning that Alia won’t be present. On Diwali, Karan played the perfect host by making sure the two former lovers don’t cross each other’s paths and make things awkward,” said a source.
“He invited Alia in the morning to his office for a special pooja and party. Alia was happy being there and told him that she wouldn’t be able to attend the evening bash. That solved things for Karan who invited Sidharth for the evening revelry,” the source added.
