Alia Bhatt is a decade old in the film industry and in a short span of time, she has carved a space for herself in the hearts of her audience. Known for her incredible range, versatility and effortless screen presence, she is winning over the box office with every new film. After Brahmastra in 2022, Alia returned to the big screen with Karan Johar's family entertainer, Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, co-starring Ranveer Singh. With this, she has once again proven her mettle as an actor and how she can be the feisty and fabulous leading lady we can gush over. 

As Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani is winning hearts globally, let's take a look at some of Alia's top performances over the years that established her as one of the female superstars.


Highway was Alia's second film. At a tender age, she pulled off a character that was off-beat, brave, and remarkably challenging. With her sincere efforts and passion for acting, Alia excelled and how. It is still considered a breakthrough performance by any actor. 

Gully Boy:

Alia exuded swag as Safeena in Gully Boy. Her dialogues have been popular ever since the film released in 2019. In the Zoya Akhtar film, she shined equally and displayed her prowess as a performer. 

Gangubai Kathiawadi:

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Gangubai Kathiawadi put Alia in a completely new spotlight. She put her heart and soul into the character of a brothel madam who fought for the rights of sex workers. Gangubai Kathiawadi was one such splendid performance by Alia that created the loudest stir. No one can imagine the biopic without Alia!  


Darlings was her maiden production venture under her home banner, Eternal Sunshine. She headlined the Netflix film with Shefali Shah and Vijay Varma. As Badru, Alia showed a dark, vulnerable and powerful side without losing her innocence. Alia again proved why she is the most versatile and can nail any character!

Alia's debut Hollywood project, Heart Of Stone, is releasing on Netflix on August 11, 2023. It also stars Gal Gadot. Alia plays the antagonist named Keya Dhawan.
