Before Gully Boy, how Alia Bhatt has emerged as Bollywood’s most unpredictable actor

Posted 2019/02/12 1452 1

Gully Boy actor Alia Bhatt has wisely balanced her filmography with entertainers and diverse roles co-existing happily in her repertoire. Here’s why her decisions make her the most unpredictable star of Bollywood.

Is there anything that Alia Bhatt can’t do? At the age of 25, Alia has a filmography that is envy of many of her colleagues. The actor is back in yet another never-seen-before avatar in Gully Boy – the girl from the wrong side of the tracks who promises to ‘dhoptungi’ a rival in love. Ranveer Singh may be the eponymous Gully Boy but Alia holds her own in the film.

Once called a masterpiece by her filmmaker father Mahesh Bhatt, Alia has emerged as a powerhouse performer who has earned her stripes within seven years of her debut. Out of the 10 films she has starred in, all have got love from viewers sans one, Shaandaar. However, more importantly, she has happily walked the fine line between entertainers and roles that are hard to come by for women in the Indian film industry.

Alia can safely be called the best defence of nepotism in Bollywood. After her debut in Student of the Year, she could have been yet another heroine on the periphery of her own films as the camera followed the hero’s trajectory but she proved her acting acumen with her second film, Imtiaz Ali’s Highway. As a woman coming to terms with childhood abuse, Alia was equal parts vulnerability and strength in a very mature performance.

The girl-next-door

After Highway, Alia delivered two back-to-back romances — 2 States and Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. Both the films released in the same year, 2014. She carried on with similar roles in Shaandaar and Kapoor & Sons. However, all the performances allowed her to sink her teeth in and again underline the fact that she was a natural once the camera was switched on.
