Then, now and how: ‘SOTY’ to ‘Kalank’, witness a major transformation of Alia Bhatt in these throwback pictures!


From SOTY’s 'Shanaya' that made us swoon on the beats of ‘Radha’ to Kalank’s 'Roop' that left us mesmerized in ‘Ghar Mohe Pardesiya’, Alia Bhatt’s ethnic game seems to be getting stronger with each passing day.

Recently, a never seen before picture of our beloved Aloo surfaced on the internet and we couldn’t help but wonder at her glamourous transformation.


Little #aliabhatt dressed in a saree for #neenagupta wedding reception at ITC hotel near the airport. In those days there was no social media so it was very difficult to find out much information about private events like weddings.i landed at the hotel to figure out and was lucky as I stood at the lobby to capture the invitees. I did not get Neena's picture as she had not invited any press and she wanted to keep it a private affair. I remember Alia telling me to send these pictures which till date I never did . But now I got time after decades...finally. among other guests were #indranimukherjee and #petermukherjea who always obliged me with pics with a smile. Memories . #throwback #viralbhayani @viralbhayani

Decked up in saree for Neena Gupta’s wedding, a chirpy little Alia made a public appearance before making a big Bollywood debut with Student of the Year in 2012. Her lilac printed saree was teamed up with an embellished blouse. Not going high on glam, she rounded off her look with glossy pink lips, and soft curls.

From a cutie patootie to a saree siren, Alia sure has upped her style game and how! Testimony to the fact- this fresh pink drape from Tarun Tahiliani that she flaunted during the promotions of Kalank in 2019.

Contrary to her initial years, Alia shed off her babyface for an unmatched bone structure. Subtle glam with filled-in brows and a chic ponytail with minimal accessories refined her ethnic look furthermore.

Then, now, how and wow!
