The phenomenal rise of Alia Bhatt

In less than 5 years since her debut, Alia Bhatt has established herself as not only a popular star but also one of the best actresses in the industry today. A film like ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ has come at the right time for her career too.

Almost all her previous films were targeted mostly at the urban section of the audience, but ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ is her first film that should extend her fan-base into smaller cities and towns of the country.

The biggest career failure for Alia is the ‘Shaandaar’ debacle. That aside, when her films haven’t been outright hits at the box office – Highway and Udta Punjab – they have won her critical acclaim.

With age on her side (Alia turns 24 tomorrow), we could be looking at a star who has the potential to dominate the industry in the next few years. A rare combination of beauty and acting talent!

  • Yeah She is the best. Cute beautiful and talented

    She should now do big films as well
    Heard that her rival Shradda is doing thugs of hindustaan.Shradda got a big one
    I have also heard that in Remos next with Bhai there will be a role of a young girl too….Not as a romance interest but a prime role
    Hope Alia signs it.

  • Alia and Anushka dominate Bollywood. Hope Deepika will come back this year too. Three queens of indian cinema ! It’s very clever that they do mass films as well (Sultan, BKD) to have a global fan base.

  • Deepika’s absence in bollywood and Kareena’s pregnancy made things fall in place for Aalia. No doubt about her talent but she is very lucky to get things at right time. Deepika actually hit axe on her legs by doing xxx, if Padmavati is anything less than BRM then she wont be number one for long days as Anushka is surging ahead.

  • But the only thing which is not in her side is the beauty she lacks you have to admit she looks ugly but I really like her work specially in udta punjab she is a talented actress and we should admit she will be a lady superstar in coming years.
