Alia Bhatt, who made her debut at the Met Gala 2023 in New York, was called Aishwarya (Rai Bachchan) by the paps on the red carpet. But the ‘Raazi’ star won the hearts of millions with her sartorial choices at Met Gala. Alia opted for a pristine white gown with a billowing silhouette from the shelves of Prabal Gurung. Prabal has shared many pictures and videos of Alia on his Instagram account. Among those, there’s a video, in which, Alia was called by a paparazzo as ‘Aishwarya this way’. However, Alia posed for the paps, smiled at them, and walked off. Prabal also helped her with her gown on the stairs of the red carpet.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is a well-known name at international podiums. But she is a more familiar face at the Cannes than at Met Gala.

After walking the red carpet, Alia shared pictures of her Met Gala look on Instagram and revealed that her royal ensemble was made using one lakh pearls.  Actor Alia Bhatt’s Met Gala debut look has received a big thumbs up from fashion police, fans, colleagues and of course her family.

The ‘Student of the Year’ star hit the iconic red carpet in a dreamy white gown designed by fashion designer Prabal Gurung. This year’s theme was ‘Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty’, based on the new Costume Institute exhibition exploring the work of the iconic designer. Lagerfeld, who died in 2019 at the age of 85, spent decades creating clothes for Balmain, Patou, Chloe, Fendi and Chanel in addition to his own namesake label, Page Six reported.

Alia made her debut at the fashion night on Monday. The ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ star opted for a beautiful white gown with pearl embellishment all over it by designer Prabal Gurung.

She teamed the gown with embellished gloves, matching diamond earrings and rings. For the glam, she opted for a centre-parted half-tied ponytail, high heels, subtle smoky eye shadow, kohl-lined eyes, nude lip shade, and a dewy base.

This appearance of Alia will precede her Hollywood debut in ‘Heart of Stone’.

Several pictures and videos of the star went viral on social media in which she could be seen posing for the camera at the Gala.

Alia Bhatt is one of the best actresses in Bollywood currently. From playing ‘Sehmat’ in the spy-thriller ‘Raazi’ to ‘Ganga’ in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s drama ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’, she has delivered some versatile performances, winning over both fans and critics.

After making a mark in Bollywood, she is now all set to take over Hollywood by storm.

Alia will be making her Hollywood debut alongside the ‘Wonder Woman’ actor Gal Gadot in the upcoming action-thriller ‘Heart of Stone’.

Helmed by Tom Harper, ‘Heart of Stone’ is intended to be the first instalment in a series akin to Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible. The movie also stars Sophie Okonedo, Matthias Schweighofer, Jing Lusi, and Paul Ready in addition to Gal, Jamie, and Alia. The movie is slated to release exclusively on the OTT platform Netflix in August 2023.

In September, last year, the makers of the film unveiled the first look, which received massive responses from the fans.The video also reveals that her character in the film is called Keya Dhawan. However, she is wary not to spill any details about her character. Alia also filmed several action scenes for the movie. Last year, visuals of the diva filming scenes with her visible pregnancy bump appeared online and created a huge buzz.

In an interview with Variety, Alia earlier said, “It was my first Hollywood big English picture experience and I had quite a task at hand because I was shooting for the first time an action movie. But I’m also pregnant so there were so many layers for me to deal with. But they made it so seamless and so easy and so comfortable for me. It’s something that I will never forget because of how beautifully and how well I was treated.”

Fans are eagerly waiting to see Alia in an action avatar opposite Hollywood star Gal Gadot.

Interestingly, Alia’s film will be clashing with her husband Ranbir Kapoor’s upcoming action-thriller ‘Animal’. ‘Heart of Stone’ will premiere exclusively on the OTT platform Netflix whereas ‘Animal’ will be getting a theatrical release.

Talking about her Bollywood projects, she was last seen in the sci-fi action film ‘Brahmastra -Part 1: Shiva’ opposite Ranbir Kapoor. Helmed by Ayan Mukerji, the film also starred Amitabh Bachchan and Mouni Roy in lead roles and was declared a blockbuster.

She will be next seen in Karan Johar’s upcoming ‘Rocky aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani’ opposite Ranveer Singh. The film is all set to hit the theatres on July 28.
