Alia Bhatt was introduced to us as the Student Of The Year. Shanaya is her nickname, though some sources reveal that she is popularly known as “Aloo” in her circuit. In Udta Punjab, her performance was critically acclaimed. She is soon to start shooting for Ayan Mukherji’s sci-fi fantasy film, Dragon and she considers herself a “director’s actor”.
Her father Mahesh Bhatt is her best friend, and Karan Johar, her mentor (that’s a lethal combo on a professional scale too). Meet Alia Bhatt, who loves to sing, party, workout at the gym, and going by her track record “act to awards”.
