An impossible-to-ignore image of Alia Bhatt popped into my mailbox this morning, courtesy of fashion designer Anushka Khanna. If, like me, you’ve just read the day’s newspapers — including a story in Mumbai Mirror on how much Alia Bhatt charges for ad shoots and commercial endorsements — you’d be right to ask how a designer who made her fashion week debut only last year manages to afford Alia’s services. Well, let’s just say it is a ‘relative’ matter for the relative newcomer. Anushka Khanna just happens to be Karan Johar’s cousin and Alia Bhatt just happens to owe her successful debut to the very same filmmaker. Whatever one may say about her performance in Student of the Year, this Bhatt baby clearly plays ‘protégée of the year’ to perfection!
