Talking about Alia Bhatt’s love story, Ramesh Dubey was her boyfriend when she was in the 6th class. After this, Ali Dadarkar in 8th class. Alia’s name is also associated with her costar, in which Siddharth Malhotra‘s name comes first, but Siddharth rejected it, and her affair with Businessman Kavin Mittal (Rumored). There was also news of dating actor Arjun Kapoor. Apart from this, she was in discussions with Varun Dhawan for some time. Currently, She is dating Ranbir Kapoor.
Describing Bhatt’s childhood, Bhatt has stated, “I had a rather grounded and modest upbringing. I didn’t get the pleasures that somebody assumes I would’ve got because I am Mahesh Bhatt‘s daughter. Growing up, The actress did not share a close bond with her father; Razdan has said that the actress raised her children mostly as a single parent as her spouse did not take much interest in their lives.
Bhatt aspired to be an actress from a young age and has said that Bhatt 1st realized it while rehearsing for the school choir in kindergarten. Alia soon began dance lessons at Shiamak Davar’s institute. Her 1st acting character was at age of only 5 in her father’s Mahesh Bhatt‘s production venture Sangharsh, in 1999, in which Alia briefly acted the younger version of Preity Zinta’s character. Talking about her experience, Bhatt later stated, “I don’t remember much of the shoot. I would move to the sets only for the food”.
Bhatt had her 1st leading part, in the year 2012, with Karan Johar’s teen movie Student of the Year, alongside Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan. The actress auditioned alongside 500 girls and was cast after losing 16 kg. The actress acted as a sophisticated teenage girl involved in a love triangle. Anupama Chopra of Hindustan Times mentioned similarities between her character and the one acted by Kareena Kapoor in Johar’s Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, in the year 2001, but noted that her play was “without the killer attitude”. Lisa Tsering of The Hollywood Reporter dismissed Alia as a washout. Not only is the gorgeous actress inelegant in the dance numbers, but her expressions are limited, and the digital retouching of her look throughout the movie is a distraction”. The Movie grossed US$13 Million (₹960 Million) at the box office.
Dismayed by the critical response to Student of the Year, actress Alia was keen to perform a better character. Beautiful actress Alia Bhatt found it in Imtiaz Ali’s road movie Highway, in the year 2014, in which Bhatt starred as a lonely teenage girl who develops Stockholm syndrome after being abducted.
