Happy Birthday Alia
Happy Birthday Alia

New Delhi : The pretty Alia Bhatt turns 26 on March 15. She is one of the greatest actresses working in Bollywood today and perhaps the most naturally gifted performer in the industry now. Alia's powerful acting since her debut in Student of the Year needs no explanations. Till date, she gave several hits in different roles and she has been tagged as the versatile actor of the Hindu film world.

On the day of Alia's birthday, let's take a look at the best Bollywood films given Mahesh Bhatt's daughter:


Highway is a great example of Alia’s talent. Directed by Imtiaz Ali, it is a messy drama about a kidnapped girl experiencing the Stockholm Syndrome. Her dreamy performance is not at all like the on-the-nose melodrama that Imtiaz reveals in.

Udta Punjab

Alia’s Bihari accent in Udta Punjab is above reproach. She was not just heartbreakingly magnetic in director Abhishek Chaubey’s drug drama, she was authentic. It was an internalised performance in a film that was all about the externalities.

Dear Zindagi

Dear Zindagi is another film that simply can’t keep up with Alia’s charms. In Gauri Shinde millennial film about millennial problems, Alia finally played a character who seems to be the closest to what she might be in real life - an urban girl experiencing the perils of big city loneliness, and struggling with the pressures of surviving in a concrete jungle, alone despite being perpetually surrounded by people. 


One of the best qualities about Alia as a performer is just how perceptive she is. She knows exactly which buttons to push, and more importantly when to take her foot off the peddle. In the film, she chooses to let Sehmat be Sehmat, using her body language and eyes to communicate what her words can’t.

Gully Boy

Alia opposite to Ranveer Singh did exceptionally well in the film. Balancing the film on their steady shoulders, Alia in lead role beholds the role smartly.
