Last Updated: 02.10 PM, Mar 15, 2024


After having debuted with the film Student Of The Year, there was no proverbial looking back for Alia Bhatt. Be it her personal life or her career, there has been only one direction which she has been seen walking- towards progress and how! Today, at such a young age, she has to her credit, of not just having a successful career, but also her stint as an entrepreneur, a producer and … the list is practically endless! That’s why, today, on the occasion of her birthday, we bring to you the ten different times when she made headlines!


Her debut film!
It was right from her debut film Student Of The Year, that Alia Bhatt has been making headlines. Even though she was heavily criticised for being a nepo-kid, she always let her work speak for itself. The film, which also starred two other leading men viz., Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra, marked the arrival of three Gen-Next superstars. The success of the film at the box office only reaffirmed the same. 

Her Hollywood debut
Within a short span of time, this Bhatt girl went on to take a giant leap from Bollywood to Hollywood with the film Heart Of Stone. Her co-star in the film was none other than Gal Gadot and Jamie Dorman. The film, post its release, went on to garner encouraging reviews, esp. Alia’s performance. If the buzz is to be believed, then, the birthday girl Alia received a staggering $500,000 for the film!

Her entrepreneurship journey
Besides being a stellar actor, Alia Bhatt also took the entrepreneurial plunge. She is an investor in companies like Phool, Nykaa, Stylecracker, SuperBottoms, Ed-A-Mamma

Her ability to laugh at herself!
After the (infamous) episode of her unintentional goof-up on the Koffee With Karan show, not many will have the guts and the daring to make a video which is a spoof about ‘the joke is on me’! But, not the birthday girl Alia! She went ahead and joined hands with the All India Bakchod, a group of young minds to make a ‘laugh-at-myself- kind of video titled ‘AIB: Alia Bhatt - Genius of the Year. Besides the fact that, the video garnered many million views, it also catapulted Alia Bhatt as someone who can do just about anything under the sun! Take a bow, lady!

Alia Bhatt’s production
Besides acting, Alia Bhatt also took her a giant leap into the world of production with her compnay 'Eternal Sunshine Productions', under whose banner a path breaking film like Darlings had got made. Alia, thne, went ahead with her next project Poacher, a film that was about animals in the wild and their illegal poaching.

 Of late, Alia Bhatt is super busy with her upcoming film Jigra, which has Vedang Raina as her co-star.

Alia Bhatt’s marriage with Ranbir Kapoor
Unlike many other stars who chose to marry on international shores, Alia Bhatt proved her ‘desi at heart’ nature by marrying Ranbir Kapoor on the terrace of their Bandra home on April 14. In an interview by Neetu Kapoor to Film Companion, she said that they had kept everything hush hush till the time the lights went up and the Sabyasachi outfits arrived!

The 'Sustainability Quotient'!

Alia Bhatt simply upped her level by notches when she was seen wearing her wedding sari when she had come to receive the national award. With this, she not just proved that, she is not one of those quintessential celebrities who will have qualms about repeating their dresses, at least when it comes to a grand event like the national award.

Alia Bhatt proved that she was as similar as you and me (the common man) by repeating her wedding sari while attending the said event. In other words, Alia Bhatt has an apt example of sustainability, something which made the entire media and social media sing her praises for a long time.

Health conscious
One has to give it to Alia Bhatt for maintaining a proper balance between her personal life and her professional life. Just as when she was due for her baby’s delivery, she ensured that she took all the required safety precautions as a would-be mother. And post the delivery of her daughter Raha, Alia Bhatt wasted no time in taking care of her health by practicing yoga and other exercises.

Her National Award!
Thanks to her stellar, splendid and spectacular performance in the film ‘Gangubai kathiawadi’, she went onto win the prestigious national award. For those who have seen Alia’s performance in the film just can't stop singing her praises. The manner in which she got into the skin of the character was totally unparalleled. No wonder then, she won the National Award for the film, which served as a testimony to the seamless amount of talent she brings on the silver screen.

Healthy competition
Never ever must have anyone seen or heard Alia Bhatt talking bad about anyone. It is this admirable quality of hers, which makes her an extremely affable human being. She has always been seen praising her contemporaries and their work. Be it Priuanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor Khan or even Katrina Kaif and others, Alia Bhatt only has good things to say about them! It is this quality of the Bhatt girl that makes her the ‘darling’ of millions all over!
