Bollywood power couple Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor invited media photographers to their house to request them not to share pictures of their two month old daughter Rahaa. Several celebrity photographers shared details of the conversation on their Instagram accounts. Varinder Chawla wrote that the actors promised photographers that when their child is at an appropriate age, they will allow them to photograph her.

“Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt are one of the most sought after couples in the Bollywood industry. They were blessed by a beautiful daughter ‘Raha Kapoor’ last year. Today the couple met the paparazzi personally and requested them to not click pictures of their daughter. The couple diligently explained all the obvious reasons to keep their child away from the media glare. And most importantly, the couple has promised the photographers that at the right age and time, they’ll allow to click pictures of their little munchkin. Indeed a right and positive step taken by Ranbir and Alia❤️”

Another celebrity photographer Viral Bhayani shared that Ranbir had showed the paparazzi pictures of his daughter on his phone, and then also gave them some chaat to eat.


“Beautiful ❤️ couple #ranbirkapoor#aliabhatt and #neetukapoor hosted a special get together for media photographers. The couple requested media not to click their baby. During the informal conversation Ranbir showed us beautiful images of Baby Raha on his phone। Later he treated us with some amazing chaat 🙂”

Alia Bhatt had announced the name of her baby in December, revealing that her mother-in-law, Neetu Kapoor, had given the inspiration for the moniker.

“The name Raha (chosen by her wise and wonderful Dadi) has so many beautiful meanings…

Raha, in its purest form means divine path
in Swahili she is Joy,
In Sanskrit, Raha is a clan,
In Bangla – rest, comfort, relief,
in Arabic peace,
it also means happiness, freedom & bliss.

And true to her name, from the first moment we held her – we felt it ALL! ❤️

Thank you Raha, for bringing our family to life, it feels as though our lives have only just begun. ☀️☀️☀️”
