If you really want to sit and watch something relaxing, Dear Zindagi is the perfect movie for you.

The actress shares screen space with the king of Bollywood, Shahrukh khan. It’s definitely a one-of-a-kind film.
#4 Meghna Gulzar’s Raazi
One of the most challenging roles of Alia bhatt’s career is playing the character Sehmat Kaur, an Indian Spy in the film Raazi. This movie showcased how well can bhatt girl adapt to different types of roles.

Writing which couldn’t justice to its story is the Alia bhatt, Shahid Kapoor starrer Film “Shaandar”
Few minutes into the movie and you will think, “Am I watching a movie or a cartoon”? The movie is an entire puzzle and even the talented actors couldn’t save the film.
