Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif.
Ever since Alia Bhatt made her debut in 2012 with Karan Johar’s Student of the Year, there’s has been no looking back for her. From Raazi to Highway to Gully Boy, Alia has managed to captivate millions of hearts with her brilliant acting skills and stupendous performances. Now, the pretty actress has won the title of Most desirable woman of 2018 by defeating her friends Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif.
In 2017, the top position was bagged by Miss World Manushi Chillar who dropped to the seventeenth slot in the 2018 list. On the other hand, Deepika Padukone who was at second position in 2017, bagged fourth position this year after Katrina Kaif who is on third. Meanwhile, Alia Bhatt was on the 37th position in 2017 but her hard work and great acting chops worked wonders last year that she topped the list and how.
Talking about her being the Times Most Desirable Diva, she told Bombay Times, ''Thank you! I never thought that I would be given this title, of the ‘Most Desirable’. I don’t know what makes me desirable, but I think that you find someone desirable when you like the person’s personality as a whole. Most importantly, it is about liking the person for who they are. Recently, I was reading a fan letter; I usually try and make time to read all my fan mails and respond to them. I was reading one letter, which said, ‘I love you not because you are a celebrity, but because you are a good human being, and we can see that’. For me, that is the most important thing, the fact that there are people who understand my personality. I believe that I am transparent, and it is great if people can see it. If people believe my personality is desirable, there is nothing like it.”
The actress further stated that desirability has nothing to do with a person’s relationship status or age. She said, ''I don’t think your relationship status or age has got anything to do with being desirable. When people talk about the ‘X-factor’, I think it is that thing which you express through your eyes and people can see it through your eyes and soul. That is what attracts people towards you and makes you desirable.''
On the professional front, Alia Bhatt has a great line-up of films in her kitty. The actress has started shooting for her next film Sadak 2 which also stars Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt in lead roles. After Sadak 2, Alia Bhatt will start shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Inshallah in which she is paired opposite Bollywood superstar Salman Khan. The actress also has Ayan Mukerji directorial Brahmastra in which she will be seen alongside Ranbir Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan and Mouni Roy.
