Alia Bhatt is currently in the news for all right reasons. The quirky actress who has been the center of all jokes pointing at her low general knowledge knows how to win hearts. With her next Bollywood movie Udta Punjab creating waves with its trailer, let us have a look at five unknown facts about Alia Bhatt which will make you drool and love her even more.

She is an extraordinary painter

It is rightly said that a creative person has many arts and many minds, its true for Alia indeed. Apart from being a superlative actor, she is also a fantastic painter.

Her paintings are majorly charcoal based and she paints whenever she gets time from her busy shooting schedule.

Alia is Emran Hashmi’s cousin

Not many people know that Ali Bhatt is actually first cousin of none other than Bhatt camp favorite Emran Hashmi. She is also the first cousin of Mohit Suri. It will really be awesome to see them all work together some day since they all have very different range of talents.

Her debut was not Student of the Year

Though Student of the Year is when we all saw heras the leading lady, she has acted in quite a few films as a child actor. Her debut film actually was Sangarsh where she played the younger version of Preity Zinta.

She loves yoghurt

Yes you heard it right!

While yoghurt is what many of us might cringe on, Alia loves it. She eats yoghurt regularly, especially with Mexican and Italian food and also encourages everyone around her to try it out. Seems like she really knows what good is for skin since yoghurt has been touted to improve skin tone for ages.

A fitness freak

So all actresses are a bit of fitness freaks, but Alia Bhatt takes it to a whole another level.

She drinks a lot of water to stay fit and eats a lot of fresh fruits though cheese, kheer, rabdi and dosa are her favourite food items. After knowing her favourite food list, we surely know why she works out so much and drinks so much water.

Alia’s next release is titled Udta Punjab starring also Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor.
