Ranbir Kapoor stood by Alia Bhatt's side as she accepted her first National Film Award for Best Actor in Delhi on Tuesday. Seated in the second row alongside veteran actor Waheeda Rehman, Ranbir's protective instincts shone during the event. As paparazzi swarmed around Waheeda, pushing the table in front of her, Ranbir took action. He rose from his seat and requested photographers to exercise caution.

A video from the National Film Awards ceremony has gone viral, earning admiration from fans in the comments section. A photographer's voice in the video is overheard saying, "Arey yar dhakka mukki, table aage jara hai yar, kya kar rahe ho aap log (why are you pushing, the table is moving, what are you doing)?"

Appreciative comments flooded the video, highlighting Ranbir's chivalrous gesture. Fans praised his upbringing and likened him to his late father, Rishi Kapoor, known for similar actions. Some called him cute, a gentleman, and the embodiment of courtesy.

Accompanying Alia to the National Film Awards ceremony, Ranbir captured pictures of her as she received the Best Actor award from President Droupadi Murmu. It marked Alia's first National Film Award, celebrating her performance in Gangubai Kathiawadi, which also received recognition in multiple categories. Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali couldn't attend the event.

Alia's choice to wear her wedding saree for the occasion garnered significant attention. She appeared enchanting in a sheer beige saree, her hair styled in a casual bun adorned with flowers, while Ranbir looked dashing in a black bandhgala suit.
