Alia Bhatt makes it to Verve’s Power Moment list for blowing us away with her performance in Highway

From a debut that was little more than a lipstick ad, Alia Bhatt has surprised us all with her ability to portray raw sincerity in Highway. Follow that up with her work in 2 States and you have the toast of the season. She brings an endearing effervescence to interviews, reminding you of the very best elements of her famous parents and older sibling, handling the media frenzy with uncommon poise. We can’t wait to see more of her and the legendary Bhatt charm.

Feedback on Highway: Has said that her father’s approval of her performance in the film has meant the most, and that she wants for him to be known as ‘Alia Bhatt’s father’.

Her reaction to criticism: Was depressed after being slammed for her debut in Student of the Year, but was bolstered by director Imtiaz Ali’s confidence in her.

Reel expectations: Considers every film an opportunity to explore new emotions. She may stumble, but that’s okay with her.
