When Alia Bhatt made her a glamorous debut with Student Of The Year many people fell in love with her pretty face. Everyone thought of Alia as a cute lil baby, no one really gave two hoods about her acting chops, because everyone thought she didn’t have it in her. She was tagged as a mere arm candy, a pretty heroine that is used to make the film more starry. Many called her the typical blonde, but look at her today and you wouldn’t find any traces of a blonde in her.

Designer clothes, make up, break ups and making out with some hot boys that is the side of Alia Bhatt that we got to see in SOTY. She was the typical “hey am I looking good?”, “hey is my mascara intact?” kind of girl in that film. Though many liked her, it was only cause she looked pretty, no one imagined her to be a girl with some or rather any acting chops. A great debut as the film was a hit and she was only 19 years but an epic fail when it comes to acting.
We wonder how on earth did Imtiaz Ali identify the acting cells in her while Karan Johar failed to bring it on screen. Post SOTY Alia was expected to act in many more such films where she would run around trees and romance the hero or where she would be all dolled up to be swept off her feet by her prince charming. But Imtiaz Ali had different plans for her. Highway changed the way people looked at Alia Bhatt. She is kidnapped in the film and eventually falls in love with her kidnapper. This film saw Alia Bhatt kick some ass with her no make up avatar and incredible acting!
Now she is all set to rock and roll in 2 states where she plays the role of a Tamil Brahmin who falls in love with a Punjabi boy. Well looks like the Alia Bhatt who was only concerned about her make up has vanished into thin air and we have with us the new Alia Bhatt who can kill with just looks(mind you it’s not the eye make up but the expression). We like this change!
