Photos: Here’s How Alia Bhatt Looked Before Her Big Bollywood Debut

The young Bollywood star, who has already given much-acknowledged films like ‘Highway’ and ‘Udta Punjab,’ is climbing her way up with every project. Her recent release ‘Badrinath ki Dulhaniya’ is doing great in the cinemas.

The actress made a very promising debut with Karan Johar’s ‘Student of the Year,’ starring actors Siddharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan. Since then, Alia has never looked back. With her performances like ‘Veera in Highway’ and ‘Bauria in Udta Punjab’, the actress has proved that she has a long way to go in the industry.

But the slim and fit Alia, which she appears now, was not the same before her Big Bollywood Debut. Here are some of her unseen pics:

Not many people know that before her debut with Student of the Year, Alia, as a kid, has also starred in Preity Zinta’s ‘Sangharsh.’

Alia had to lose as much as 16 kgs for becoming The Alia that she appears today.

Many of the people around give the credit of her success to Karan Johar, a very few of which know that she had to beat as many as 400 girls to get her first break as ‘Shanaya Singhaniya in Student of the Year’.

Daughter of Mahesh Bhatt and Soni Razdan, Alia also shares a special bond with her half-sister Pooja Bhatt.

Alia, in her free time, makes charcoal paintings. She is also a handball player.

Alia is a foodie and loves French fries.

When not working, she enjoys hanging out with her friends.

The actress has also a soft corner for animals which is why she supports PETA.

Alia has also tried hands at playback singing with songs like ‘Samjhawan from Humpty Sharma ki Dulhaniya’ and ‘Sooha Sooha from Highway.’

Alia does not like to be disturbed while she is sleeping and gets cranky if anyone does so.
