Alia Bhatt, whose second film Highway with Randeep Hooda hit the screens this week, says she shares a very special bond with her 2 States co-star Arjun Kapoor. "Arjun has a very special place in my life. He is a funny person and has a good sense of humour," Bhatt said. Alia has been romantically linked with Varun Dhawan and Arjun Kapoor in the past, about which she said, "It doesn't matter. I will never talk about who I am dating. You can only let a person invade your privacy if you allow them to cross the line," she added. According to Bhatt, the link ups do not affect her father-filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt either. "I don't think it bothers him. But I think he doesn't want me to date anybody," she said. Bhatt is often compared to Kareena Kapoor Khan but she thinks they are very different. "I don't think the comparisons are true. I don't think I am like her in any way. Also, there can never be another Kareena Kapoor," she said.
