Alia Bhatt

Actor, Producer, Entrepreneur

Actor, producer, entrepreneur, and environmentalist; Alia Bhatt is a true multi-hyphenate.

As an actor, she has brought depth and gravitas to a host of characters that demonstrated her versatility and panache. Her award-winning performances include Highway, Udta Punjab, Raazi, Dear Zindagi, Gully Boy (which premiered at the Berlinale), and Gangubai Kathiawadi (which premiered at the Berlinale, and for which she received her first National Award).

As a producer, her first film, Darlings, became the second most watched non-English content on Netflix worldwide for two weeks. She followed it up with the widely acclaimed Amazon Prime Video series Poacher, directed by Emmy-winning director Richie Mehta and produced by QC, Richie Mehta and Alia Bhatt.

As an entrepreneur, she created Ed-a-Mamma, a sustainable brand for children to instill a love of nature in them.

She has managed a rare balance between critical acclaim and box office love. In the last three years alone, every theatrical release of hers has featured in the top ten films of the year by box office.

She made her Hollywood debut last year with Heart of Stone.

She is the first Indian actor to be the global brand ambassador for luxury fashion house, Gucci. She is also the first to be featured in Mandarin Oriental’s global campaign, “I’m a Fan.”
