Over the past two days, Bollywood superstars Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor have provided fans with several frame-worthy moments in what can only be described as the wedding of the year. However, two of the most moving images from the intimate wedding show the groom with his father-in-law, Mahesh Bhatt, rather than the couple.

Mahesh Bhatt‘s eldest daughter Pooja Bhatt posted photos on Instagram of the prolific filmmaker sharing a warm hug with Ranbir Kapoor. Both men, dressed in ivory, are smiling, seemingly unconcerned about the cameras trained on them during the special occasion.

Pooja Bhatt captioned the photos, “Who needs words when one has the ability to listen and speak from the heart?” It’s no surprise that the photos piqued the interest of celebrities and fans, who flocked to the comments section to express their feelings. Suniel Shetty, an actor, responded to the images by saying, “God bless.”
