It’s Throwback Thursday! A childhood picture of Indian cinema stars Hrithik Roshan and Alia Bhatt is making the rounds on social media and we can’t seem to get over it. We really did not see this one coming as the two stars share an age difference of a whopping 20 years!
The image also features veteran actor Neena Gupta’s daughter Masaba, who is also on the road to becoming a household name in Bollywood. Famed film producer shared the picture on Instagram and captioned it, “These are the most adorable ones, without realising.” Her daughters, Anushka and Akansha, are also snapped in the picture and the latter and Alia still remain the best of friends and have often been spotted heading to the gym and parties together! The two have also been on multiple holidays together including Spain and London.
As fans were in for the most aww-dorable visual treat, the Koi Mil Gaya star’s followers were among the first to comment. “Hrithik looks the same even after so many years,” penned one user. Another added, “Hrithik is so handsome! And, Masaba and Alia are so cute.” Multiple fans posted love-struck emojis besides Hrithik’s name too. “The kids look star struck posing with Hrithik in the picture.”
However, Alia’s sister Shaheen Bhatt couldn’t stop blushing! Embarrassed by the childhood photo, she commented, "Why Anu aunty, why!"
Alia is currently shooting for the superhero drama Brahmastra in Varanasi with her actor-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor. She has also started work on her maiden film with doting daddy Mahesh Bhatt. Alia has signed up for Sadak 2, which also stars Aditya Roy Kapur, Pooja Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt in lead roles. Hrithik will next be seen in the much-anticipated film, Super 30.
