Ranbir Kapoor was by Alia Bhatt’s side as she received her first National Film Award for Best Actor in Delhi on Tuesday. The couple was seated in the second row with veteran actor Waheeda Rehman in the front row. At one moment during the event, Ranbir interfered as paparazzi surrounded Waheeda to click her and even started pushing the table placed in front of her. Standing up for Waheeda, who was honoured with the Dadasaheb Phalke Award at the event, Ranbir stood up from his seat and asked photographers to be careful.

Alia Bhatt received her first National Award
Ranbir had accompanied Alia to the National Film Awards ceremony and was seen clicking her pictures as she received her Best Actor award from President Droupadi Murmu. This was Alia’s first National Film Award for her performance in Gangubai Kathiawadi, which won in multiple categories. Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali could not attend the ceremony.
The highlight of Alia’s appearance was how she chose to wear her wedding saree for her special day on Tuesday. She looked lovely in the sheer beige saree and had her hair tied in a rough bun, adorned with flowers. Ranbir was in a black bandhgala suit.
