Making it big into the Hindi film industry is quite a difficult task even if you’re from a ‘filmy family’. While some actors struggle to live up to their family aura, the others are so dedicated that they carve a special name for themselves. And actor Alia Bhatt belongs to the same league, the ‘massy, and classy’ superstar! Throughout her career, Alia has played several remarkable roles, essaying her incredible range as an actress.

From her sassy debut in the 2012 film Student Of The Year or her ‘Bambaiyya’ dialect in the Gully Boy, it is clear that Bhatt girl loves to experiment with challenging parts. And that’s one of the reasons that has cemented her status as one of the most sought-after actors of Hindi cinema.

And on the eve of her 28th birthday (March 15), here’s taking a look at her epic and inspiring journey to stardom. 

From Star To Actor

When Alia made her debut in the 2012 film Student Of The Year, the actor’s on-screen charisma was highly appreciated. Though her first film made her a renowned star, Alia knew she had a lot more to work on. And later, Alia’s show-stealing performance was in Imtiaz Ali’s film Highway which helped her pave her way as a method actor of Hindi Cinema.

Eventually, Highway was the beginning of a new phase in her career. For the next couple of years, she starred in many mainstream and parallel movies simultaneously. And another breakthrough of her career was Abhishek Chaubey’s Udta Punjab where we saw a never seen before avatar of hers. Devoid of stars and glamour, Alia became one of few actresses who emerged as a leading lady through parallel cinema.

While her debut SOTY made her a star, Alia’s contribution to quality-oriented films made her popular as an actor.

‘Script’ In The Spotlight

After delivering hits like Highway, Raazi, Dear Zindagi, and Gully Boy, Alia was hailed for her choice of scripts. The actor has always weighed the project based on its story. And that’s one of the reasons she has evolved as a leading lady of Bollywood. While many of her contemporaries opted for films based on their screen time, Alia’s primary intent has always been how interesting or meaty the character is.

For instance, playing an unnamed girl in Udta Punjab who accidentally gets involved in the drug mafia of Punjab, helped her garnered huge appreciation. Starring alongside established actors like Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia was able to mark her presence and grab your eyeballs. This choice proved that the script has always been in the spotlight for Alia Bhatt.

The Art Of Experimenting

Many prominent filmmakers have expressed their desire to work with Alia. And one of the reasons behind this is her dedication to the art of performing. Alia is keen on experimenting with her roles and has a fresh outlook on each of the characters she plays. Her dedication and love for cinema mirror in each of her performances. 

Imtiaz Ali had shared in an interview that Alia’s unexpected improvisations added a much-needed essence to the film Highway. This art of experimenting with the challenging parts is something that sets Alia apart from the rest of her contemporaries.

And these are some of the reasons that make Alia one of the most hailed leading ladies of Bollywood. With a brave project like Gangubai Kathiawadi already in her kitty, she’s now set to venture into Telugu cinema with SS Rajamouli’s RRR. After ruling over B-town, the actress is making her way to the regional cinema and we bet she’ll own it one day!

Happy Birthday, Alia!
