Alia Bhatt was launched along with Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra in the college drama Student Of The Year in 2012. Following this, the actress quickly made a name for herself in her next few films. She not only consistently gave fine performances but also delivered box office hits. In fact, even when the Bollywood industry was struggling last year, she tasted major success with Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva and Gangubai Kathiawadi. Even RRR, the film where she played a cameo, became a historic hit.
And now, with the release of Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, it is safe to say that this is yet another success for Alia at the ticket window. The movie, which sees her cast opposite Ranveer Singh, has amassed Rs 45.90 crores in the first weekend.
This is the third highest weekend ever for a film starring Alia in her little over a decade long career.
