Alia Bhatt, younger daughter of Mahesh Bhatt has become the youth icon of our country since she has played the role of Shanaya in her debut film ‘Student Of The Year’. Despite being so tremendous and confident, she is always asked questions about nepotism in the Hindi film industry. Nevertheless, we all know she is Mahesh Bhatt’s daughter but the fact we all are also aware of is that she is yet to do a film in her home productions, Vishesh Films.
After her first film Student of The Year, she just grabbed all the stardom with each passing films. From the stunning but shallow Shanaya in SOTY to the role of Veera Tripathi in Highway and then her striking role of a spy in Raazi, she has come a long way and we all know the reason behind her success is surely not nepotism, the 25-year-old has amazing talents in running in her veins.
Now, in 2019 Alia Bhatt is going to rock with her upcoming movies in which she will be playing different and unique roles (for which she is most popular). In Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy, she will be seen as a Muslim rapper from the streets of Mumbai, in Kalank, she will be playing a concubine in waiting to take lessons in ADA, Andaaz Dance Academy from Madhuri Dixit; in Brahmastra, she will be seen opposite Ranbir Kapoor, who is playing the role of a superhero, their pair is suitably giving the romance goals to the country in 2019.
She has so many big projects lined up for this year, she doesn’t really need anything like nepotism. In 2020, with Sadak 2 it will be the first time ever that she will be acting in a movie directed by her father Mahesh Bhatt, which also stars her stepsister Pooja Bhatt. Not only this, but she is also ready to play the role of Dara Shikoh’s wife Nadira Banu Begum, in Karan Johar’s Takht.
Alia’s ride as an actor is really exciting as from a young age she learned to balance commerce and art which is the major aspect. Karan Johar, being her mentor helped her negotiate the industry on her terms, and being Mahesh Bhatt’s daughter she has this natural advantage to share the DNA of one of the Bollywood’s most emotionally matured people. Gaining only stardom is possible through nepotism, but gaining applauds, praises and blessings is only possible through real talent. She has given so many breath taking films – Highway, Udta Punjab, Dear Zindagi, Raazi and so on.
Like the previous year, 2019 is the year when the angry young women will take over the throne from the angry young men. Whether it is through Sonam Kapoor’s ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga’, which potrays the story of two women who are in love, Kangana Ranaut’s ‘Manikarnika’, based on the life of Jhansi Ki Rani; and Taapsee Pannu’ courtroom drama ‘Badla’.
This year, with many other actress, Deepika Padukone is all ready to do a issue based film; a biopic of acid attack survivor ‘Laxmi SAA’, replenished, married and nurtured. It’s not only the year for the on screen female stars but also the female directors and producers are ready to rock in 2019 like Zoya Akhtar, who is showing her production skills with Made in Heaven, a wedding planner drama for Amazon Prime.
