Alia Bhatt and Karan Johar in black

Newcomer Alia Bhatt, daughter of renowned filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, says she prefers to consult her mentor Karan Johar regarding her career over her family. Karan Johar had launched Alia Bhatt with Student of the Year last year.


Alia Bhatt, who is the sister of actor-turned-director Pooja Bhatt and cousin of actor Emraan Hashmi, says she doesn’t take any acting tips from them. -“Karan Johar is like my mentor. He has given birth to me when it comes to getting into this industry. So, every decision that I make, I do consult him.


Alia will be seen next in Highway where she is paired opposite Randeep Hooda. The film, a road trip, will see the two characters travelling to different places.
