Directed by Gauri Shinde and co-starring Shah Rukh Khan in the lead role, Alia portrayed the role of a restless and frustrated cinematographer who is discontented with her life.

The lead cast of the movie complemented each other’s performances and Bhatt nailed the illustration of the blunt and cynical cinematographer with perfection. ‘Dear Zindagi’ released in the year 2016.
With Meghna Gulzar’s ‘Raazi’, Alia Bhatt was carrying an entire film on her shoulder for the first time. And the actress did not fail to impress with her powerful portrayal of an Indian spy.

The protagonist of the story, Sehmat, portrayed by Alia, sets off to Pakistan after getting married to serve the nation as an undercover agent. ‘Raazi’ released in the year 2018 and it also stars Vicky Kaushal in a titular role.
The story revolves around the love story of Krish and Ananya – two significant individuals giving birth to a cute rom-com movie. Based on Chetan Bhagat’s best-selling book ‘2 States’, the story portrays Alia as Ananya, an economics topper in her college, coming from a conservative Tamil Hindu Brahmin family. When love blossoms between the two, the real challenge was to seek their parent’s approval for marriage. Ananya is smart, unapologetic about expressing her feelings and always encourages her loved ones to follow their aims. When Krish confides in her about being a writer, it was Ananya who was supportive of him. But yes, despite her dating beliefs, running away or avoiding responsibilities wasn’t something she was in favour of. She loved and respected her parents more than anyone else in the world. Alia’s on-screen energy made Ananya’s character believable.
Remember when Safeena entered into the girl’s workstation to hit her and say, ” Door reh mere boyfriend se.” Most of us have been there – getting into major fights for our love. Safeena and Murad’s relationship is one such bond most of the youth could relate to. Not only being the protective girlfriend, Safeena also proved to be a rebel for a good cause. When it came to her life decisions, she chose to stand up for her rights. She fought and cried for continuing her further education when her parents told her to get married. In the end, she made sure to move on with her studies and got what she wanted. She is bold, resilient and made sure to not leave her partner’s side right from being in his struggling days to the time he gave his best concert performance. We all loved watching Alia being ‘Safeena’. Murad was portrayed by Ranveer Singh.
