Alia Bhatt is the daughter of the filmmaker, Mahesh Bhatt and actor/producer, Soni Razdan, and it wouldn’t be an understatement to say that she grew up in the entertainment industry. Do you remember the little girl in the movie, Sangharsh, which was released twenty-two years ago? That little girl was none other than Alia, who had played the role of young Preity Zinta in the film, and thirteen years later, she made her acting debut as a grown adult with Karan Johar’s movie, Student Of The Year. From ingenue to one of the brightest stars of the industry from her generation, Alia’s evolution has been a remarkable one over the years.

Alia Bhatt turned 28 on March 15, 2021, and her mentor-cum-close friend and filmmaker, Karan Johar hosted a celebration for her on the birthday eve. From Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Malaika Arora, Arjun Kapoor, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Ayan Mukerji to Aryan Khan, everyone had come together to celebrate Alia’s special day, which was a little dull because of her beau, Ranbir Kapoor’s absence. A week ago, Ranbir had tested positive for COVID-19, because of which, he is currently quarantining and is under medication.
Other than the guest list of Alia Bhatt’s birthday eve celebration, it was her OOTN that caught our attention. For her birthday bash, Alia opted for the prettiest shimmery dress by Magda Butrym. As much as we loved Alia’s pick for the celebration, the cost of the outfit gave us a mini heart attack. As per the official website of Magda Butrym, Alia’s dress is described as “A sleeveless sequin mini dress has a billowing top section and a short, fitted skirt. Up top, a round neckline and shoulder pads frame the top of the silhouette, and the collection's signature keyhole detailing is accentuated with a red sequin rose at the collar.” The outfit is priced at $2,575, which converts to Rs 1,87,273.
When Alia Bhatt’s to-be sister-in-law, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni had turned 40 in September 2020, she had attended the celebrations as Ranbir Kapoor’s plus-one and made heads turn with her stunning sartorial pick for the party. Alia had opted for a floral Zimmermann summer dress, which bore bell sleeves, v-neckline and a mesh bodice. Alia had complemented her look with three-strapped neutral stilettos and a white Chanel crossbody bag. Alia had worn her yellow-coloured dog-printed mask with the dress.

But that wasn’t the first time when Alia Bhatt had made a statement in this floral Zimmermann summer dress! It was in 2018 when Alia had shared a picture on her IG handle, wearing the same dress, which she had paired with a crossbody bag and two-strap rose gold stilettos. Back then, Alia had styled her hair into messy waves and a simple braid held it away from her face. Not just Alia, Shraddha Kapoor had also sported the same Zimmermann dress during the trailer launch of her film, Batti Gul Meter Chalu and Malaika Arora too, had flaunted the same dress while out and about in the city. Looks the dress had won the hearts of quite a few celeb divas! This floral Zimmermann summer dress costs $850, which roughly comes up to Rs 62,572.
To mark Alia Bhatt’s 28th birthday, her family and celebs have showered her with love and good wishes. Ranbir Kapoor’s mom, Neetu Kapoor posted a gorgeous picture of Alia and wrote, “Happy birthday to the coolest happiest girl I know. Keep inspiring everyone with your positivity and strength. Love you loads @aliaabhatt.” Riddhima Kapoor Sahni also wished Alia with some throwback pictures and wrote, “Happiest bday”, “Beautiful doll” and “We love you so much @aliaabhatt” atop them. Ranbir's cousin, Kareena Kapoor Khan posted an IG story to wish the 'superstar' of their family, Alia. She wrote, "Happy birthday superstar. Continue to shine like no one can. @aliaabhatt"
Alia Bhatt’s mother, Soni Razdan posted a stunning picture of her ‘sunshine’ on her 28th birthday with a most precious and heartfelt wish. Soni captioned the picture of Alia as “‘The art of a people is a true mirror to their minds’ Jawaharlal Nehru. In that case my darling you have a very special mind ... may it bloom and grow forever and may you also always like what you see in the mirror. Happy Birthday Sunshine! Love you to bits and pieces and so much that they don’t have a number for that.” She also posted an IG story and wrote, “Happiest birthday my sweetie pie… no matter how grown up you are, you’ll always be my baby.” (Also Read: Alia Bhatt Turns Bridesmaid, Dances Her Heart Out On 'Genda Phool' At BFF's Sangeet)
