She played her first leading role in Karan Johar’s teen film Student of the Year (2012). She won the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actress for playing a kidnapping victim in the road drama Highway (2014), and went on to establish herself with starring roles in several films produced by Johar’s studio Dharma Productions, including the romances 2 States (2014) and Badrinath Ki Dulhania (2017), and the coming-of-age drama Dear Zindagi (2016). Her filmography has a very wide variety carrying different aspects of society, life and also has a very beautiful plot for which she got a humongous fan base and love from the Indian audience.
While on one hand, Bollywood is struggling to deliver a hit, on the other hand, there is Alia who it seems can do no wrong when it comes to her films.She started the year with a bang with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi which was followed by a brief role in SS Rajamouli’s RRR.And recently, she was seen in her debut production Darlings, a Netflix original.
If we discuss her greatest work then ‘Raazi’ where Alia essayed the role of Sehmat while Vicky portrayed the role of a Pakistani army officer, Iqbal under the direction of Meghna Gulzar. From music to performances, everything about this film managed to impress audiences, and hence, it bagged several awards and accolades as well.
In her career spanning over 8 years, she has given many hit films. One film that not only proves her versatility but also established her as the leading lady in Bollywood is her 2014 release Highway. All those who have watched the highway would agree that Alia Bhatt was indeed the perfect choice for the film. She pulled off all possible means to get into the skin of her role and needless to say, she did the full justice to it.
All these films have been record-breaking successes & have catapulted Alia to new heights of stardom. While she plays the lead role in Gangubai Kathiyawadi & Darlings, it was her small role in RRR that got her a lot of criticism from people who mocked her brief appearance in the SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus.But, it turns out there are no small roles & only small actors & currently there is no actor taller than Alia in Bollywood in terms of stature as even RRR has led to a rise in her popularity around the world.
