Alia Bhatt Life and career
Early life and work (1993–2012)
Alia Bhatt was born on 15 March 1993 in Bombay (present-day Mumbai) into the Bhatt family to Indian film director Mahesh Bhatt and actress Soni Razdan. Her father is of Gujarati descent and her mother is of Kashmiri Pandit and German ancestry. She holds British citizenship. She has an elder sister, Shaheen, and two half-siblings, Pooja and Rahul Bhatt.
Establishing as a leading lady (2014–2018)
Dismayed by the critical response to Student of the Year, Bhatt was keen to play a better role. Following a year-long absence from the screen, similar to that of co-stars Malhotra and Dhawan, she found an opportunity with Imtiaz Ali’s road film Highway (2014), in which she starred as a lonely teenage girl who develops stockholm syndrome after being abducted.
Gully Boy and beyond (2019–present)
Bhatt launched her own production company named Eternal Sunshine Productions in early 2019, with a newfound aim on fresh, relatable and non-conformist stories. Her first appearance in the year came with a pivotal role opposite Ranveer Singh in Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy, a musical inspired by the life of the street rappers Divine and Naezy.
Other work and media image
Bhatt has performed playback singing for the song “Sooha Saaha” in Highway (2014). A. R. Rahman, the composer of the film, invited her to his music school to undergo training.
