Is there something that Alia Bhatt can not do? At the age of 25, Alia has a filmography that envies many of her colleagues. The actor is back in another avatar never seen before in Gully Boy, the girl on the other side of the tracks that promises “dhoptungi” a rival in love. Ranveer Singh may be the same name as Gully Boy, but Alia has his thing in the movie.
Once her father, filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, called her a masterpiece, Alia has become a powerful artist who has earned her career within seven years of her debut. Of the 10 films he has starred in, all have received the love of spectators without one, Shaandaar. However, more importantly, he has walked happily along the thin line between artists and the roles that are hard to come by for women in the Indian film industry.
Alia can safely be called the best defense of nepotism in Bollywood. After her debut in Student of the Year, she could have been another hero in the periphery of her own films, as the camera followed the hero’s trajectory, but proved her ability to act with her second film, Imtiaz Ali’s Highway. As a woman who came to terms with child abuse, Alia was equally vulnerable and strong in a very mature performance.
