Alia Bhatt Helps Raise Funds for Children With Heart Diseases
Alia Bhatt recently inaugurated an art exhibition in Mumbai, which would help children with heart diseases get proper treatment
In a short span of time, Bollywood star Alia Bhatt has already left a huge mark in the industry. Making her debut with Karan Johar’s Student of the Year back in 2012, the starlet has proved her mettle as an actress. Her acting in Highway, Udta Punjab and Raazi was lauded by many, putting her in the list of one of the finest performers of Bollywood. She’s currently gearing up for the release of Brahmastra opposite beau Ranbir Kapoor and also working on Baahubali director’s RRR. Alia also has Sadak 2, Inshaallah and Takht lined up, along with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai. While the actress is busy with her hectic work schedule, she does try to take time out to support different causes.
This time around, Alia has come forward to support an initiative that raises funds for children who suffer from heart diseases, through a painting exhibition. She inaugurated an exhibition named Art for the Heart at Bai Jerbai Wadia Hospital for Children in Mumbai recently. During the inauguration, she said, “I have been told that kids are more positive than adults because they don't know how bad the situation is and they don't have a negative frame of mind. I feel that's the reason they get cured faster.”
After the inauguration, the young starlet shared her thoughts. “I visited Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of this hospital, which is Asia's largest unit, and it's a really good and proud thing for all of us. It's the first year of Art for the Heart initiative, where they are raising funds through this painting exhibition, so that they can carry out heart surgery of kids.” Lauding the efforts of the hospital staff, Alia concluded, “I feel the doctors and staff of Wadia Hospital are doing a fantastic job by helping people at reduced funds and sometimes free of cost. I feel we should support and encourage them so that people can understand things like these also require funds.”
