Alia Bhatt may have entered the film industry by debuting in Karan Johar’s film Student of the Year in 2012, but her journey in the last six years have proven her versatility time and again by essaying roles to perfection. However, while Alia has risen to stardom, it seems there’s one actress who doesn’t believe it was just her films, which made her popular.

Who exactly is this actress? Our very own, Miss World, Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan, of course.

In a recent interview with Bollywood Hungama, the Bachchan bahu was asked to give a message to Alia Bhatt and here’s what she said.

“I’d like to say, way to go. It’s wonderful that she is enjoying and exploring her craft and her time here in films the way she is,” Aishwarya said. “I’ve said this to Alia too that it’s fantastic the kind of support Karan has given to her from the beginning. To have that kind of an establishment with you is very comforting.”

She surprisingly didn’t end there and continued saying,  “What’s nice is she’s also doing good work along with great opportunities which are virtually there on her lap literally, regularly. So, it’s nice she is doing good work within that, so Kudos!”

We wonder if the former Miss World was really showering praise on Alia and her performances such as Highway, Raazi, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, and Udta Punjab or taking a dig at her for being among the fortunate ones. What’s your take?
