Alia Bhatt's parents Soni Razdan and Mahesh Bhatt and sisters Shaheen and Pooja Bhatt shared adorable birthday posts for the 26-year-old actress on social media. Mahesh Bhatt and Shaheen shared throwback videos. In the video posted by Mahesh Bhatt, he can be seen talking on the phone while baby Alia plays happily seated on his belly. "Some memories do not wither with time. Happy birthday, Alia," he captioned it. In the video posted by Shaheen, little Alia can be seen making a ruckus on the dining table. "You are a wonder to me, not for the remarkable things you have achieved, but for you who you are. Nothing has taught me as much about love as being your sister has," read an excerpt from Shaheen's post.
Here are the throwback videos:
I suppose there are many kinds of love. And often, we love different people in similar ways. But there's a special type of love, a type of love that is reserved for one person and one person alone. There is no replicating that feeling. No distributing it. No diluting it. No changing it. It is love in its purest and most unadulterated form. My notions of love changed the day I saw your your crinkley little face and so did I. You are a wonder to me, not for the remarkable things you have achieved, but for you who you are. Nothing has taught me as much about love as being your sister has and I promise, whether it's at 7 or 70, I will always be there to carry you. What is love? Pretty sure this is. Happy Birthday @aliaabhatt P.S. You're the orange of my ankles.
Mahesh Bhatt, who will direct Alia for the first time in upcoming film Sadak 2, also shared a picture from her midnight bash and wrote: "Sunshine mixed with a bit of magic. Happy birthday, Alia." Pooja Bhatt posted a picture from Sadak 2 BTS photoshoot, also featuring Sanjay Dutt, and wrote, "To the one that makes us all look good! Happy Birthday, magical one... Here's to much joy, strength, love and Sadak too!"
Soni Razdan shared a picture from the party too and wrote: "Happy, happy birthday sweet Alia... your light is shining brighter each day... Wish you all the light love and the bestest best of the rest in your life. Keep shining. Love you."
Recently, Alia Bhatt talked about bonding with her father Mahesh Bhatt on television show Starry Nights 2.Oh. Alia Bhatt said that Mahesh Bhatt was hardly around when she was a child and their "real friendship" started when she entered the film industry. "For me, he was always like a celebrity who would walk in to the house... But after a couple of years, he made sure he spent some time with us, played board games. The real friendship started when I entered the Bollywood industry and I understand how it must have been for him. It is such a consuming job," she had said.
Alia Bhatt, 26 today, celebrated her birthday surrounded by her family and friends. Ranbir Kapoor, Karan Johar, Ayan Mukherji, Pooja Bhatt, Akansha and Anushka Ranjan and Masaba attended her midnight birthday party.
