Alia Bhatt has made Bollywood a friendlier place


Alia Bhatt has made Bollywood a friendlier place

Alia is spreading the love

By ELLE team  December 26th, 2017

Forget about any catfights you were hoping to see. No boy drama here, move along. None of that backstabbing, name-calling, and gossip rag drama we love so much. Bollywood’s a peaceful place now. Everybody’s friends with everybody else and they all eat avocado toast together. Or so Alia Bhatt would have you believe. 2012 didn’t just see the start of Alia Bhatt’s career, it also saw the beginning of the era of peace in Bollywood. No more calling out each other on Koffee with Karan, it’s only about praising your contemporaries. Warm fuzzy thoughts.

None of that Sonam and Deepika-style Ranbir bashing. Everyone’s friends with their exes and all the Kapoors are reigning in their extended family. Alia Bhatt will adopt any Kapoor left out of the immediate family.

Case in point:

They’re even chucking up peace signs. Alia is basically a white dove with an olive wreath in her mouth.

Can you feel the love? 

Alia Bhatt is just sucking out the poison, one celebrity at a time. Let’s map this out for you. Alia befriended her first co-stars Sidarth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan. She even started a budding Bollywood romance with the former while the latter and her went on to become an on-screen power couple. Varia is a thing.

 Befriending co-stars is one thing but making Karan Johar your bff is a whole other party. Not bad for your first year in Bollywood. After her Koffee with Karan debut alongside Sid and Varun, the actress became somewhat of a nationwide joke for not being smart enough. In response, she won over the entire country with an AIB collaboration video that went viral. The video was conceptualised with her sister’s boyfriend Rohan Joshi and featured some of Bollywood’s biggest names, including Parineeti Chopra, Arjun Kapoor and Karan Johar. It was the first time a Bollywood celebrity laughed at themselves publicly and got their contemporaries to poke fun at them too. It also opened up the door for India’s first professional and public roast. Joining the film fraternity with the comedy circuit. 

After befriending every co-star from Shahid Kapoor to Shah Rukh Khan, all Alia Bhatt had to do was get all the celebrities feuding to chill with each other. Let’s start with Ranbir’s exes. Alia and Katrina have become besties by bonding at the gym over endorphins. But Alia’s also managed to get Deepika Padukone to join her crew, with all of them chilling at Shah Rukh Khan’s birthday in Alibaug.

Alia Bhatt also befriended Ayaan Mukherji, who is BFFs with Ranbir Kapoor. She’s also acted with, and thoroughly charmed, Kareena Kapoor who has never hidden her beefs with co-stars. The actresses worked together on Udta Punjab, praising each other’s work. Even Shahid Kapoor and Kareena seemed to get along like the amicable parents of divorce. Alia Bhatt is basically the United Nations.

Someone started a rumour that Alia got a bit territorial about Sid when he and Jacqueline got too cozy as co-stars. But does this look like an insecure girlfriend to you?

Alia Bhatt seems to be straight chilling with the whole film fraternity.

It’s becoming more and more apparent that this is Alia Bhatt’s Bollywood party and everyone is invited, as long as they get along.

She’s even doing a film with Ranveer Singh. So we can bet the two are the next in line to become BFFs.

 How many 20-something-year olds can say they are friends with Shah Rukh Khan?

Can you feel the love?

She was even recently spotted having dinner with Priyanka Chopra. How do they know each other? What did they talk about? Are they going to have sleepovers soon. Possibly.

Celebrities that get irritated by the paparazzi together, stay together. 

Motion for a remake of Hum Saath Saath Hain, but as a reality show with all of Bollywood getting along.
