Alia Bhatt’s acting career began with the 2012 rom-com “Student Of The Year.” However, it was her standout performance in “Highway” that drew attention. From there, Bhatt’s versatility shone through in diverse roles, such as a drug addict and a victim of domestic abuse, winning over audiences and critics.
As Veera Tripathi, a wealthy Delhi-based girl who is abducted, Alia Bhatt gave a reserved and subtle performance. Bhatt commanded every scene and brought the audience along on her emotional path from being a helpless and terrified victim to a woman who faces her demons.
This espionage thriller movie from 2016 paved the way in many ways. This was a rare “100 crore film” that was fronted by a woman and written and produced by two women (Meghna Gulzar and Bhavani Iyer). (Bhatt). Additionally, the movie depicted spies in an entirely different form. The Sehmat Khan Syed played by Alia Bhatt was not a polished, alluring femme fatale; rather, she was the girl next door who, by accident, grows up to be an agent for her nation and picks up the skills she needs along the way. Because of Bhatt’s superb portrayal, the audience cried along with Sehmat as she ultimately gave up love and even her humanity for the sake of her “watan,” and they prayed for her safety. (nation).
This dark farce marked Bhatt’s entry into the OTT realm. This wacky short film, which Jasmeet K. Reen directed, was both eccentric and unsettling. Even though the movie deals with a delicate subject—domestic abuse—it declined to be all gloom and doom. As the deeply in love wife Badru Shaikh, who is desperately trying to preserve her marriage and protect herself from the punches and kicks of her alcoholic spouse Hamza, Bhatt shines. (Vijay Verma).
Although Alia Bhatt’s Safeena was not the main character in this Zoya Akhtar film, she still made an impression as the no-nonsense, feisty, medical student wearing a hijab who is a little too generous with her punches. Safeena was a firebrand, which was both adorable and frightening!
This Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial concluded as one of the highest-grossers of 2022 (Rs 209 crore) and also developed. Alia’s breakout as an internationalstar for the film created waves in not just India but several nationsacross Asia and was one of the the greatest watched non-English films on Netflix. Bhatt was radiant and menacing in the role of Gangu Bai, a former bordello madam turned politician who battles tenaciously for the advancement of Kamathipura’s sex workers.
Her transformation from one of the most ridiculed celebrity kids to a reliable box office draw and a favorite among critics is nothing short of inspiring. Alia will be next seen opposite to Ranveer Singh in the upcoming movie “Rocky and Rani Ki Prem Kahani”
