Alia Bhatt married Ranbir Kapoor in April 2022.

What the wedding videographer said

During a conversation, The Wedding Filmer said, “I was not available when Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt called me about their wedding. Many of these stars call me two weeks before their wedding because it is a secret and no one can know.”

He added, “The downside is that… I’m not available for most of them. I’ve never cancelled a wedding to do a celebrity wedding. I didn’t do Alia and Ranbir’s wedding because I was booked to do a wedding in London for a very beautiful, lovely bride. I wouldn’t change it for the world, even now. She was gorgeous and it was a beautiful experience. Ranbir and Alia would have gotten a nice wedding film.”
