Talking in detail about why she decided to be a producer of various Indian films, she narrated how her family guides her in making entrepreneurial decisions in life.
Alia Bhatt makes all the financial decisions at her home?
At the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit, Alia Bhatt was asked whether she takes all the finance-related decisions at her home by herself. To this question, Alia responded, “In my life, it is my mother (Soni Razdan) who makes all the financial decisions. Without her go-ahead, I do nothing.”
Alia Bhatt even elaborated on how her recent clothing brand for children’s wear gained momentum. She mentioned that she identified the gap in the market and being a first-time mother helped her in making strategies for the growth and development of the business.
Next up, Alia has also invested money in another project – Jigra – a film that is still in the making. The film is being directed by Vasan Bala. Dharma Productions is also promoting the film.
Currently, Alia Bhatt endorses over a dozen popular brands. Notably, she has a fanbase of over 80 million Instagram followers which also helps her reach out to a great number of people. She is also quite active on Twitter as well.
As per Sacnilk, Alia is the third most followed Indian actor on Instagram, after Priyanka Chopra and Shraddha Kapoor. This fact, too, draws the attention of several brands to her.
