Alia Bhatt all set to be the Box Office Queen in 2019?
Silver screen’s current top actress Alia Bhatt may have had just one release this year in 2018 but that has won her all the accolades from fans and the industry. Playing the Indian spy Sehmat in the thriller drama Raazi, Alia was critically acclaimed for her portrayal and she will surely sweep all the awards for this one. Though it’s obvious that her fans are disappointed since the bubbly actress had only one release this year, it’s time to jump with joy! It’s because in the coming year of 2019, Alia is all set to have not two or three but FOUR releases, in the form of Gully Boy, Kalank, Sadak 2, and Brahmastra.
Isn’t that amazing? Now let’s take a look into her upcoming flicks–
