Revealing her daughter's name, Alia had written, “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.”
Ranbir was last seen with Alia in the fantasy epic Brahmastra, directed by Ayan Mukerji. The film worked well at the box office and had cameos from Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone. He will be seen next in Animal by Sandeep Reddy Vanga and in a film by Luv Ranjan.
