Alia Bhatt, who is riding high on the success on Kapoor and Sons, has been busy as a bee with all the promotions and events organised for the film. The film's release and subsequent reviews have won her several plaudits for her performance and her innate ability to select films, which are intrinsically memorable.
The actress, who turned 23 recently, spent the whole day with family celebrating with her parents, grandparents and sisters Shaheen and Pooja among others. The sweetest gesture during the celebrations were shown by Alia's maternal grandparents, Trudy and NN Razdan, who gave her a beautiful rendition of the birthday song with a harmonica and a violin. While grandma Trudy played the harmonica, grandpa played the violin.
Naturally, the Bhatt household got all emotional and the sisters took to Instagram to post videos and their individual messages.
Big sister Pooja Bhatt posted, "Happy Birthday Alia!! A glorious rendition of Happy Birthday for @aliaabhatt by her dazzling grandparents! Naturally there was not a dry eye in the house.. Not that there ever is a shortage of waterworks at a Bhatt family do but this one was truly special!#Birthdays #family #grandparents #Bhatts #legacies #giftsthatkeepongiving #memories #waterworks." She also posted the picture of a teary Alia with her grandmum captioning it, "Priceless! @aliaabhatt celebrates her birthday with her stunning grandmother Trudy Razdan... 64 yrs separate these beautiful women! #legacies #family #familytree #blood #grandmothers #granddaughters #blessings"
Alia too was overwhelmed with emotions with the unusual gift. She posted, "My grandparents wish me happy birthday in the most beautiful way ❤️❤️ couldn't hold back my tears... #belatedbirthdaycelebration @shaheenb @poojab1972"
It is all about loving your family, after all, isn't it?
