Happy Birthday Alia Bhatt
She's definitely one of those rare newcomers that already seem to have a lot going for her at such a young age.
Director Mahesh Bhatt and Soni Razdan's daughter, Alia Bhatt first appeared in films as a child artist in the Akshay Kumar - Preity Zinta starrer Sanghursh (1999) where she played the younger Zinta. Her proper debut was though was in Student Of The Year opposite newcomers Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra at the end of last year. She made an impression, in her peppy, fashionable turn as Shanaya, and the film did well kick starting her career into films.
As of now she has several promising films in the pipeline - Karan Johar's 2 States with Arjun Kapoor and Imtiaz Ali's Highway with Randeep Hooda, both of which will release this year.
The actress turns 20 today so here's hoping she's gets all the success and happiness she deserves on her special day.
Happy birthday Alia!
