It has barely been seven years since she set her foot in the entertainment business, but has managed to win millions of hearts every time she lights up the screen. Even though Alia Bhatt was launched by Karan Johar's Dharma productions, very few would say that Student of The Year explored the powerhouse of talent that she is. The film acted as a launchpad for filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and actress Soni Razdan's daughter and it was from there that Alia took one film at a time and literally aced each of her unique roles. 

Today, as the actress turns 26, we take a look at some of Alia's career-defining roles which put her under the spotlight and made critics, audiences and fellow co-stars take note of her films and her fine acting skills.

1. Safeena in Gully Boy: The fiery character of Safeena played by Alia in Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy was not only a delight to watch on screen but made us root for her even when she committed some serious mistakes. A medical student who is over protective and possessive about her lover, Safeena left audiences spellbound with her gully diction.

2. Veera Tripathi in Highway: Alia Bhatt's second film made her competition stop and take note that the actress had indeed arrived. Her emotionally intense character alongside Randeep Hooda resonated with many. Directed by Imtiaz Ali, Alia did the unimaginable with Highway. The actress bagged the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actress in just her second film.  

3. Sehmat Khan in Raazi: Directed by Meghna Gulzar, this drama thriller emerged as one of Hindi cinema's biggest-earning female-led films. Alia who played Sehmat Khan, an undercover agent got into the skin of the character rather effortlessly. Alia has been nominated for her role in the film in the Filmfare Best Actress category (Critics and Popular) this year.

4. Bauria in Udta Punjab: Alia stood out as a a poverty-stricken Bihari migrant worker in this multi-starrer film. Despite actors like Kareena Kapoor Khan and Shahid Kapoor having leading roles in the film, Alia's flawless acting and avatar caught the eye. Not only did she look convincing, but her command over the language took everyone by surprise. Well, it was no surprise then that Alia bagged the Best Actress award for this character too. 

5. Kaira in Dear Zindagi: This coming-of-age drama film written and directed by Gauri Shinde, was a rather offbeat choice for Alia. A free-spirited young cinematographer who navigates life and deals with her insomnia and inner tensions, showed Alia in a new light. Bhatt was appreciated for her performance and her character resonated with the younger audiences. 

Here's wishing the actress a Happy Birthday and many more path-breaking roles!

Every character is different and same acting like crying loudly and arguing and showing nostrils and telling dialogue..
