Alia Bhatt And Fawad Khan, Dubsmash, viral on social media, Alia Bhatt (born 15 March 1993) is an Indian actress who appears in Bollywood films. The daughter of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and actress Soni Razdan, Bhatt first appeared on screen as a child artist in a minor role in the thriller Sangharsh (1999). As an adult, she made her acting debut with Karan Johar’s romantic drama Student of the Year (2012).
Bhatt’s portrayal of a teenage girl who develops stockholm syndrome in Imtiaz Ali’s road movie Highway (2014) garnered critical acclaim. She won the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actress and also garnered a Best Actress nomination at the same ceremony. She went on to establish herself in Bollywood by starring opposite Arjun Kapoor in the romantic drama 2 States (2014) and Varun Dhawan in the romantic comedy Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (2014).
In addition to acting in films, Bhatt has sung two of her film songs. She participates in stage shows, and has launched her own line of clothing for women.
Bhatt’s first acting role was as a child artist in Sangharsh (1999), starring Akshay Kumar and Preity Zinta where she played the younger version of Zinta’s character. She had her first leading role in 2012 with Karan Johar’s Student of the Year, alongside Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan. She portrayed the role of Shanaya Singhania, a sophisticated teenage girl who is in a relationship with Dhawan’s character but is attracted to the character played by Malhotra. Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama wrote of her performance, “Alia’s role is reminiscent of Kareena Kapoor in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. Stylish, classy, born with a silver spoon, she’s someone who loves to flaunt not just her clothes and bags, but also her riches. Extremely photogenic, Alia makes a super-confident debut.” Anupama Chopra of Hindustan Times also mentioned the similarities with Kapoor’s character, but noted that her performance was “without the killer attitude.” Student of the Year was a financial success, grossing 700 million (US$10 million) domestically.
In 2014, Bhatt had three film releases. She played the protagonist of Imtiaz Ali’s road film Highway opposite Randeep Hooda. Her portrayal of a lonely teenage girl who develops stockholm syndrome after being abducted was acclaimed by the critics. Rachit Gupta of Filmfare mentioned that “at 20, it’s surprising how Alia has got so many deft nuances right. It’s as if the actor has grown with the character. She is truly one of the most promising new actors in Hindi films.” Sonia Chopra of Sify added that Bhatt is “completely immersed” in her role, and that “Alia’s uninhibited and raw performance will have you emotionally invested in her character all through.” However, the film underperformed at the box office. She won the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actress for the film, and garnered a Best Actress nomination at the ceremony.
