Alia Bhatt – the name that was synonymous with slow-wittedness some years back has been redeemed in the best way possible. Besides the fun-loving and carefree image that Alia has (again without trying at all) made for herself, this name has become an example for all the new kids in the Bollywood.
Alia Bhatt started her career as a lead actress in Karan Johar’s Student of the Year, and the role was very childish. But as time passed, we saw an inculcation of gumption in Alia Bhatt’s movie choices. She grew from mundane movies like Humpty Sharma ki Dulhaniya, 2 States and Shandaar to exceptional roles in Highway, Udta Punjab, Raazi, Dear Zindagi etc.
Here’s a commentary on some of her remarkable looks, where she came out with a major transformation.
bhat looks in Highway
Highway: A character of a girl that is kidnapped and develops an affinity towards her kidnapper was portrayed well by Alia in rags. Her character Veera wasn’t about the fancy clothes or bags or a face full of makeup, it was rather something ground-breaking. Alia wore low-key
bhat looks in Udata Punjab
Udta Punjab: Not caring about your “better angels” and eye-candy appearance is a considerable commitment that no actress has been able to exhibit better than Alia. In Udta Punjab, Alia played the role of a Bihari Migrant working in the fields of Punjab. For the role, Alia was seen comfortably carrying herself in a loose-fitted and old kurta,
bhat looks in Razzi
Raazi: The subtle look created by neutral salwar-kameez dresses and subdued makeup gave rise to the perfect Sehmat straight away from Harinder Sikka’s book, “Calling Sehmat”. Lighter, pleasant shades were preferred and we also saw simple hairdos like easygoing pony-tails and simple plain braids. The look was able to make an impact and was a cornerstone in the portrayal of Sehmat as an apparently delicate wife yet a discreet spy at the same time.
bhat looks in Gully Boy
Gully Boy: Alia plays the role of a student, Sakeena with the quintessential Muslimhead-covering called hijab. She is the love interest of Ranveer Singh in the movie. Going with the overall theme of the movie, Alia’s natural look is raw, straightforward and unpretentious. Although Alia is not the center of this movie, but the look and role are already making an influence on people.
All in all, Alia Bhatt is a versatile actress who can be believed to play any role while pouring in the authenticity and a flavor of realness in her looks and performance. More than anything that seems to help her deliver her best is the willingness to be carefree about her looks. She seems to get that the binding to look pretty in each frame can be saved for the red-carpet events and the photo-shoots.
