If you still believe that Alia Bhatt's first movie in Bollywood is "Student of the Year", well, you are wrong. The first movie Alia Bhatt acted in was Sangharsh in 1999. She played a younger version of Preity Zinta at the age of 6. Guess, acting truly runs in her blood.

Even though she comes from a Bollywood family; no special treatment was given to her. She had to give audition for Student of the year and it was she who got selected out of 500 or so girls because of her charming and bubbly personality.
Often played characters of outspoken and chatterbox girl next door, Alia Bhatt in real life is known to be introvert. Very close to her mom, sister and her friends, she keeps her personal life and issues to herself.
Born to Hindu parents who converted into Muslim for getting married, Alia's parents made sure that she and her sister were brought up as atheists. Alia has Kashmiri and German linkage from her maternal side and Gujarati from paternal side. She has grown up with different traditions.
One of the weirdest pet peeves of Alia is that she enjoys Men's perfume and often gets a high from them. She says that she uses Men's perfume and often keeps on changing them as per her mood. Well, whatever makes her happy
