Alia Bhatt’s debut movie is NOT Student of the Year but THIS!

Srishti July 19, 2018

Alia Bhatt’s debut movie, as known to us is Student of the Year is actually her second movie in Bollywood! Her debut in Bollywood happened long back when she played the younger Pooja Bhatt in one of Pooja Bhatt’s movies! Here’s the elder sissy sharing the throwback picture of her little sissy from the sets of her first ever produced movie Tamanna-a true life story! Yes! You read it right! Alia Bhatt’s debut movie was Tamanna-a true life story where she played little Pooja!

Pooja Bhatt, took her Instagram to share a picture of Alia Bhatt with Paresh Rawal, from the set of one of her movies with an amazing caption that read, “Sister Act!! I was all of 24 when I produced my first film Tamanna-a true life story about a eunuch named Tikku,who during the holy month of Ramzan,found an infant abandoned in a garbage dump,her face half eaten by rats and brought her up as his very own. Tamanna dealt with the discomforting truth of female infanticide that plagues our country and proved that courage & largesse often are attributes of the truly marginalised-in this case a eunuch who gave Tamanna a new shot at life when her own father wanted her dead merely because she was born a girl. It was a dud at the box office but gave me great credibility as an actor and producer,even winning me my first national award. What most people don’t know though is that both my sisters @aliaabhatt & @shaheenb were in it too. Alia played a younger me and Shaheen played Ashutosh Rana’s daughter and even brought her own toys to the shoot which we used as props. So my father cast all three of his daughters in the same film… a fact that has been forgotten with time. I stumbled upon these photos today when I was continuing my obsessive,self assigned task of salvaging the tons of photo albums that lie discarded in a corner of our office. We are nothing but memories and these comprise some of the best! #Tamanna#familyarchives #puregold #maheshbhatt#shaheenbhatt #aliabhatt #poojabhatt#sisteract #memoriestocherish #forlife

The same picture was shared by Soni Razdhan captioned as, “Oh my oh my where did the years fly … Alia in Tamanna not a very long time ago!”

Replying to her elder sister Pooja Bhatt’s sweetest gesture, Alia Bhatt put up the picture on Instagram, rightly captioning it, “Clearly throwing back this Thursday! Thanks pooj for the trip down memory lane @poojab1972 😬😬😘”
