Yes, she was launched by KJo but her success is only hers to claim. She may have received the right platform for her debut, unlike many struggling actors who spend years looking for the right debut, but you cannot take away the fact that Alia has constantly proved herself with every film. From working with Imtiaz Ali to Sanjay Leela Bhansali, she is an experimental actor who has never hesitated in stepping out of her comfort zone. 

She’s real

She is relatable and knows how to laugh at herself. She became a meme and was trolled after her appearance on Koffee with Karan. But guess what Alia did? She teamed up with AIB for a video where she made fun of herself and her IQ. Now that is brave.

Best daughter and sister
