From Student of The Year (2012) to Gully Boy (2019), Alia Bhatt has proved her acting prowess. One of the best talents in Bollywood, Alia Bhatt turns 26 today. In the past 7 years, Bhatt has acted in several interesting films and is admired for her smart choices in her films. She is one of the youngest talents in Bollywood but with a lot of films in her kitty like Kalank, Brahmastra, Sadak 2, Takht and a Telugu film titled RRR.

On her birthday today, Pinkvilla spoke to her mom Soni Razdan about Alia's birthday, her success and how her choices in films are working well. Like a proud mother, Soni shared how she is happy with Alia's success and loves her films, she also wants the actress to grow better with time. The proud mother is also happy that Alia will be soon working with her dad Mahesh Bhatt in Sadak 2.

"We are all happy. Her birthday is always a time to celebrate and she has a lot to celebrate. Her birthday is always a special occasion. At this moment in her life, she has a lot to celebrate. She had a successful film, she has another release coming up soon. So, it's all very exciting and we are looking forward to a very interesting year ahead as she will be working with her dad. As it is something very special and she just signed a film with SS Rajamouli which is a big announcement. Kalank is releasing and it is looking absolutely beautiful. So obviously, for her, this is like a kind of a special time," Razdan said about Alia's birthday.

What are her thoughts on Alia's successful graph of films? Soni answered, "She is my daughter, so I don't want to keep praising her. I think that what she is doing is good and she should continue doing it. Not only she chooses great films, but great films are also choosing her, interesting roles are also coming to her. She is coming to an interesting time in the industry which is ready for actresses like Alia who are doing different things. I think all actresses today are now wanting to do different things." 

She added, "On one level, I also feel lucky that she is coming from this time where there are very one-dimensional roles for women. For example, her character in Gully Boy is such a wonderful character. It's such a role model for young girls. Earlier, nobody wrote such characters. So, you also need somebody who can write characters like that and also somebody who can play them. So she happens to be one person who is able to play these roles. And that's great for her. I hope she keeps on getting better as she is only 26 and as she grows older, she will get better and does more work. As a mom, I am looking forward to it."

Abhishek Varman's Kalank teaser was unveiled on Monday and just like the viewers, even Soni found is very beautiful. About Kalank's teaser, she reacted, "Wow, I haven't seen anything further than the teaser. But, it's really like a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film in the kinds of appearance, grandeur and the creation of the era. What a spectacle!"

When asked which is her favourite performance by Alia Bhatt, Soni said, "It's difficult to say really because there are so many good performances she has given. But, I would definitely say I like all of them but probably her performance in Highway, Dear Zindagi, Udta Punjab, Raazi and Gully Boy stands out. I really have been impressed with her.

Alia will be working with her father Mahesh Bhatt for the first time for Sadak 2. The film also stars Pooja Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapur. When asked about her thoughts on Alia finally working with her dad, Soni shared, "I am happy for her as Mahesh is a fabulous director. I always thought that somebody like Alia Bhatt has not got a chance to work with a talent like a dad. He has the ability to bring out a lot of substance from a performer and also actors love him. He got the ability and then you become better as an actor when you work with a director like him."

Soni also told us a sweet birthday wish she has for the Highway actress, "I would like to wish her good health and keep a calm head on her shoulder when she goes through crazy life that she goes through. So, I just want her to be healthy, get enough sleep and balance head on her should. Then she can manage the life she is living."

We wish Alia Bhatt a very happy and joyous birthday!
