It is Alia Bhatt’s 25th birthday today and we are just so happy! A super young diva proved her finesse actress in the very second film of her career, i.e. Imtiaz Ali’s Highway where she played an unconventional role.
While many credit her success to the fact that she is the daughter of famous filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt but very few know that her father didn’t help her at all with her career and debut film. In fact, in a recent interview, Mahesh Bhatt revealed how Alia thanked him after the success of Student Of The Year for “Not helping at all”. The filmmaker revealed, “One of my most precious treasures, which I’ve preserved, is an autograph that Alia gave me after her first film, Student of the Year (2012), became hit. She had written: ‘THANK YOU PAPA FOR NOT HELPING ME AT ALL’. I think that’s something I flaunt to the world because nothing could be more librating for a parent that to see his own child take off and have a kind of a spectacular launch without their help and that speaks volumes of her talent. “
Well, having said that, one can imagine what a bundle of talent this lil diva is! But apart from her amazing career graph, what makes most headlines is her personal life. The actress was earlier dating Sidharth Malhotra but called it quits last year, as per media reports. Post that she flew to Bulgaria for the shoot of Brahmastra, her first collab with Ranbir Kapoor. The team went for a long outdoor schedule and now, rumour mills are abuzz that they bond really well and there is more than just friendship between the two.
However, Alia is not pleased with the rumours and finally spoke her heart out on the matter to a leading national daily. Denying all such rumours, the actress said, “Even I get really confused when I read such things, but I strongly believe that ‘silence is golden’. It’s not as if I’m never going to have a personal life. I will and I do have one, but I feel it’s called ‘personal’ for a reason. That’s why it will always stay close to me. I am fine; people can say whatever, as I don’t get bothered by such stories. May be except when you feel something really random has been written. I just hope people don’t think that this is all I am doing in life.”
Well, we hope everything is clear now!
