Radha on the dance floor
Radha likes to party
Radha likes to move that desi Radha body...
And why won't she? After all, she just reached 30.1 million followers on Instagram! That's right! Alia Bhatt is the next Bollywood celebrity to reach 30 million followers on Instagram after Priyanka Chopra Jonas (37.9 million) and Deepika Padukone (33.5 million). And the 26-year-old actress is the youngest Bollywood celebrity to achieve the milestone. Probably the fastest one too!
She announced the news with a video that will take you on Alia's Bollywood journey so far and leave you with a huge smile on your face. Clips from her films, never seen before BTS (behind the scene) shots and just a candid Alia for us all.
It all started with her debut film Student Of The Year in 2012 when she began her career with co-stars Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra. And today, a little over six years later, look where she is in the industry! In fact, she beat Varun and Sidharth on Instagram with Varun's 18.5 million followers and Sidharth's 7.8 million followers. You go, girl!
Alia has worked really hard to get where she is today and it shows with all the awards she's taking home every year. Recently, she won the Filmfare Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role (Female) for Raazi beating Deepika Padukone who was nominated for Padmaavat.
After Alia, Shraddha Kapoor is next in line with 28.3 million followers at present followed by Jacqueline Fernandez with 26.9 million. Akshay Kumar is the most followed male celebrity in Bollywood with 25.2 million followers. Not Amitabh Bachchan, not Shah Rukh Khan!
Alia is currently busy promoting Kalank with her co-stars Varan Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapur, Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Dutt and Sonakshi Sinha. The actress has also confirmed Telugu film RRR and Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Inshallah opposite Salman Khan. End of 2019 is when Brahmastra is set to release in which Alia and boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor will share screen space for the first time ever.
