Alia Bhatt’s journey from taking glamorous roles in movies like ‘Student Of The Year’ and ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya’ to owning de-glam performances like no one’s business in movies like ‘Udta Punjab’ and ‘Highway’ is proof enough that the young lady is a powerhouse of talent which is unabashed, raw and exudes a kind of energy which very few actors of her age manage to have.
While she has already left us impressed with the trailer of her upcoming movie ‘Raazi’, the actor continues to baffle us with the choice of her amazing projects. If reports are to be believed, then she is all set to essay the character of the celebrated artist and poet Amrita Pritam in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next project on poet Sahir Ludhianvi. Abhishek Bachchan has been signed on for the titular role.
The love story of the two celebrated artists is a story that definitely goes down in history and will obviously be a delight to watch if Bhansali weaves his magic. Surprisingly, not many know but Alia once auditioned for ‘Black’ but the role went to Ayesha Kapur. Seems like destiny is playing its role pretty well now.
