It was truly an evening for the stars, when Bollywood superstar Alia Bhatt stepped out in style for a photoshoot for Harper’s Bazaar India recently, wearing a glittering Velvet White by Roger Dubuis on her wrist!
Bhatt, who has created waves with a series of stirring performances, is today one of the hottest properties in Hindi cinema, something she underlined when she won the Filmfare Award for Best Actress for her role in Raazi in 2018.
Born into the Bhatt family with strong links to the film world, Aliya is the daughter of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and actress Soni Razdan. After making her acting debut as a child in the 1999 thriller Sangharsh, Bhatt played her first leading role in Karan Johar’s teen drama Student of the Year (2012). She went on to collaborate with Johar’s studio in a majority of her subsequent releases, including the romances 2 States (2014), Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya (2014), and Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya (2017); the drama Kapoor & Sons (2016); and the coming-of-age film Dear Zindagi (2016).
The commercial success of these films established Bhatt in Hindi cinema. She also received critical acclaim for portraying emotionally intense characters in the road Highway (2014), which won her the Filmfare Critics’ Award for Best Actress, and the crime drama Udta Punjab (2016), which won her the Filmfare Award for Best Actress. Her 2018 spy thriller Raazi emerged as one of Hindi cinema’s biggest-earning female-led films, following which Bhatt starred in the musical drama Gully Boy (2019), her highest-grossing release yet.
The Velvet White on Bhatt’s wrist is certainly another star. Svelte and slimline and studded with 64 white diamonds set around the 18k rose gold dial, this beauty from the Roger Dubuis lineup shows off a white alligator clasp with 18k pink gold buckle and clasp that blends nicely with the white of the dial.
