Alia Bhatt and Shraddha Kapoor are two of the popular actresses in Bollywood. The two talented women have commonalities with each other but they are also unique in their differences.
The 22 year old actress who debuted at the age of 5 in Sangharsh, debuted as a lead actress in Student of the Year (2010). Though she was in the same frame as Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan in the movie, she overtook both of them in the popularity stakes with her consecutive movies.
The daughter of director Mahesh Bhatt, Alia is an effortless actress, her brilliant performances in movies like Highway (where she played a person with Stockholm Syndrome), 2 States and Humpty Dumpty ki Dulhaniya got the approval of both the junta and the critics alike. Shandaar may have been the biggest flop of 2015, but she managed to walk away with praises for her performances. What is commendable is that in spite of having a famous and acclaimed director Mahesh Bhatt as her father, Alia Bhatt managed to forge her own path of success, and that too, on her own merit.
In 2016, Alia Bhatt will be seen in Udta Punjab and Kapoor and Sons.
Shraddha Kapoor –
