Early Life

On March 15, 1993, Alia Bhatt was born into the Bhatt family in Bombay (modern-day Mumbai) to actress Soni Razdan and filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt. Her father hails from Gujarat, while her mother is descended from Kashmiri Pandit and German parents. Jamnabai Narsee School was where Bhatt obtained her education. She is a British national. She has two half-siblings, Pooja and Rahul Bhatt, and an older sister, Shaheen. Emraan Hashmi and Mohit Suri are her paternal cousins, and her uncle is Mukesh Bhatt.

Once Bhatt remarked on her youth life, "I grew up in a humble and grounded environment; I didn't enjoy the joys that people imagine I would have had because of my father, Mahesh Bhaat." She did not have a strong relationship with her father as a youngster. Soni Razdan has stated that she raised her children primarily as a single parent because her husband was uninterested in their lives.

Bhatt has revealed that she initially realized her dream of being an actress while practicing for the school choir in kindergarten. She also took dancing training at Shiamak Davar's institute. At the age of five, she had her first acting part in her father's production film Sangharsh (1999), in which she played a younger version of Preity Zinta's role. Later, when asked about her experience, Bhatt remarked, "I'm not sure how much of the shoot I remember. I'd visit the sets solely for the food ".


Alia Bhatt began her acting career in the film Students of the Year in 2012. She got her big breaking movie in 2012 with Karan Johar's film Students of the Year, a youth-centered film that shows the life of college students. She was very popular among the young crowd during the early days of her career. Today, big-name filmmakers want to cast her in their films because of her popularity, and Alia Bhatt charges 5-15 crore rupees. Her social media following may also be used to estimate her earnings. She also charges up to 20 lakh rupees for paid advertisements on her social media profiles.

Following the triumph of Student of the Year, she starred in the film Highway, which was a great hit. She's been offered a lot of movies since then, and she's worked in a lot of them. The public warmly accepted Alia Bhatt's performance, and her appearance became well-known. She has worked with several well-known actors, including Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, and others. She has also appeared in several films alongside Varun Dhawan.

Early Work

Bhatt was looking for a better role after being disappointed by the critical reception of Student of the Year, and she found it in Imtiaz Ali's movie Highway (2014). She played a lonely adolescent who suffers from Stockholm syndrome after being kidnapped. She attended diction courses also to better her Hindi language.

Ali shot the movie in order and improvised numerous moments on-site depending on Bhatt's reactions. She has stated that numerous parts of her character's journey paralleled her since it was the first time she was exposed to conditions outside of her affluent background. Despite the film's poor box office performance, Bhatt won the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actress and was also nominated for Best Actress at the event. She then starred in Vikas Bahl's short film, Going Home, on women's safety.

Bhatt appeared in the film 2 States and Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions, released in 2014. Film 2 states is based on Chetan Bhagat's novel of the same name, and it tells the story of two management students who struggle to persuade their parents of their love. For this film, she learned to speak her lines in Tamil with a teacher's aid for her portrayal as a fiery Tamil girl. The Indian Express' Shubhra Gupta praised Bhatt, calling her a "surprise" and "easy, fresh, and natural." In Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, she played a Punjabi girl who had an affair before her wedding, which marked the launch of writer-director Shashank Khaitan and was considered by Johar as a reference to Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995). Both films were financially successful, grossing more than 1 billion dollars (US$13 million) worldwide.

Career Progression (2015 - present)

For the romantic comedy film Shaandaar, Alia Bhatt reunited with Vikas Bahl. The film, released in 2015, stars Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt as insomniacs who fall in love at a destination wedding. Shaandaar was not a commercial success.

After this, in 2016, she became part of the successful film Kapoor & Sons. Bhatt then starred as a poor Bihari migrant in Abhishek Chaubey's crime drama film Udta Punjab (2016), in which she played a drug addict. She examined videos on drug misuse and learned a Bihari accent in preparation for the difficult role, which was a break from the mainly light-hearted roles she had previously portrayed.

In Gauri Shinde's drama film Dear Zindagi, Bhatt plays a distraught young lady who talks with a therapist (played by Shah Rukh Khan); this film was released in 2016. Her next film was Gully Boy, a musical based film on the lives of street rappers Divine and Naezy, with Ranveer Singh. This film was very successful at the box office. Bhatt's next film, the romantic comedy Badrinath Ki Dulhania (2017), maintained her great film career by reuniting her with Khaitan and Varun Dhawan. She depicts the narrative of an independent young lady who refuses to comply with her chauvinistic fiancée's patriarchal expectations. In early 2019, Bhatt founded her production firm, Eternal Sunshine Productions.

Bhatt's biggest-budget film was the ensemble historical drama Kalank which was released in 2019. It was set in the 1940s, just before India's partition, and featured Varun Dhawan and her as star-crossed lovers. She studied the body language of ladies in the era by watching the films Mughal-e-Azam (1960) and Umrao Jaan (1981); she also viewed the Pakistani television series Zindagi Gulzar Hai to improve her Urdu abilities. At the box office, the picture did not do well.

Following that, Bhatt featured in Sadak 2 (2020) with Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapoor, a sequel to her father's crime thriller Sadak (1991), which could not be released in the theater because of the COVID-19 outbreak and was instead streamed on Disney+ Hotstar. Sanjay Leela Bhansali's criminal thriller Gangubai Kathiawadi is the latest film of Alia, and this film was aired at the 72nd Berlin International Film Festival in 2022, with Bhatt playing the titular prostitute.
