Bubbly actress Alia Bhatt rings her 25th Birthday today. We wish her a great birthday and wonderful year ahead. Well, Alia doesn’t need an introduction she is the youngest Bollywood actress who has reached the pinnacle of her career in such a short span of time. In a brief career of 6 years after her Bollywood debut in 2012 with Student Of The Year, the actress has tried and tested a variety of genres. From commercial hits like Badrinath Ki Dulhania to content driven films like Udta Punjab, Highway, and more, Alia was lauded by everyone and has been ruling both – hearts of the audience and the box office. While some thought that Alia was nothing but just another star kid of Bollywood, she proved her worth with the variety of movies she did.
Alia’s journey from ‘Glam Girl’ to ‘Bollywood Asset
Well, most of us are unaware of the fact that Alia started her career in Bollywood when she was 4 or 5 years old. Alia’s debut happened way back in 1999. Yes! She played the young Reet Oberoi (Preity Zinta) in ‘Sangharsh’. It was directed by Tanuja Chandra and Alia played the child artist in the thriller.
After her impressive debut in student of the year, she starred in Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Highway’ opposite Randeep Hooda. The film helped her in breaking a stereotypical ‘glam doll’ image of hers. She even went on to win the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actress. It was followed her big commercial success with ‘2 States’ and ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’.
Although she kept getting bigger in terms of her stature, what followed was a not-so ‘Shaandaar’ film. It was her first flop to be precise. However, she soon was back with a bang in ‘Kapoor & Sons’. And her most path-breaking role post ‘Highway’ came with ‘Udta Punjab’, a film which not only made everyone take Alia seriously but also fetched her all the big awards that year. She bagged the Filmfare Award for Best Actress.
Besides acting, the young gun of B-Town is also a singer and has lent her vocals to many superhit tracks in films such as ‘Samjhawan Unplugged’, ‘Ikk Kudi (Club Mix)’, ‘Love You Zindagi’ (Club Mix), ‘Ae Zindagi Gale Laga Le – 2’ and ‘Humsafar’.

Well, undoubtedly Karan Johar who is one of the finest directors we have is like a dad to Alia Bhatt. Karan launched Alia in 2012 from SOTY. Karan and Alia shared a beautiful bond that cannot be express through words. Alia always thanked Karan for believing and trusting in her.
