At the age of 30, Alia Bhatt is not just a national-award-winning actor but is also a successful entrepreneur, film producer, and mother. With this fact, it is evident that she knows how to strike the right balance between her personal and professional life. Talking about how her journey has been on the personal front, she underlined how Raha – her newborn daughter – is changing her life for the better with a slight mention of their need for privacy.

Talking at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit, Alia Bhatt shared whether she would reveal Raha’s face on her first birthday. She said, “I don’t want to be seen as hiding my daughter’s face. I am proud of her. Literally, had the cameras not been rolling here, I would have shown her (Raha)’s face on the big screen and we (Ranbir Kapoor and I) are proud of our baby.”
“But I also want people to understand that we are new parents. We, as parents, don’t know how she (Raha) will feel about her face being splashed all over Instagram or on social media (platforms). She is barely a year old. She’s too little. I don’t want paparazzi around her at the moment,” said Alia.
Further, Alia clarified that she would make her daughter’s face only when she and Ranbir Kapoor feel comfortable about it. “It’s not like we will never make her face visible to the public. It is just that we (Ranbir and I) need to get a little more comfortable with this parenting thing. We need to feel comfortable to make such a decision. We do not want to fall under pressure. Whenever we are ready, we will do it,” said Alia.
On the professional front, Alia Bhatt is working on the film ‘Jigra’. She signed up for this film last year.
