Alia Bhatt is currently the topmost actress in Bollywood. While it has got a lot to do with Dharma Productions and Karan Johar, still this young actress since her debut in Student of the Year has proved her mettle. Although she still is not in the same slot as Deepika Padukone or Katrina Kaif, Aaloo is indeed moving towards the stardom these B-town divas enjoy.
Moreover, the big banner movies that she currently has in her kitty promise a brighter future for Alia Bhatt. What's more despite the tag of star kid and nepotism she is still the hot favorite of big directors. Other star kids like Sonakshi Sinha, Athiya Shetty who debuted around the same time are yet to gain a strong foothold in Bollywood.
Shraddha Kapoor has always been a big competition for Alia but even then the Gully Boy actress has always managed to inch ahead.
Alia Bhatt Comes With No Baggage, Is a Thorough Professional - Madhuri Dixit
In her heydays, Madhuri Dixit was considered the epitome of professionalism and punctuality. When she worked with Alia in Dharma Productions Kalank, Madhuri could observe from close quarters the way Alia approached her work. During an interview, the dhak dhak girl openly appreciated Aaloo.
MADS said, "It was wonderful to work with Alia. She has amazing energy; she reminds me so much of myself. She’s so professional, always on time, doing her job well, and just wants to finish and go home. Alia comes with absolutely no baggage and that’s a wonderful trait. What a brilliant actress she is! I don’t think we have seen someone as terrific as her in a long time. The choices she’s making are so powerful and meaningful. Alia has definitely changed the whole ball game.”
Coming from an actress who herself ruled the roost at one point in time indeed means a lot. And that is the reason she has been roped in to play the title role by Sanjay Leela Bhansali for Gangubai Kathiawadi.
Having worked with Alia in Dear Zindagi, Shah Rukh Khan is also well aware of the acting capabilities of the actress. That is why his Red Chillies Entertainment has offered the Highway actress a leading role in its dark comedy movie Darlings.
She has already started shooting for SS Rajamouli's multilingual magnum opus RRR. Brahmastra with Ranbir Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan also promises a big jump for Alia Bhatt career-wise. But like Madhuri Dixit said earlier Alia's approach towards her work has a lot to do with the success she is enjoying currently.
Or else even other star kids with the backing and launch they received could have reached where Alia is today.
