On March 15, Alia Bhatt will turn twenty-five which is a landmark year in everybody’s life, but without a birthday bash. The actress who is currently in Bulgaria, shooting for Ayan Mukerji's action-adventure, Brahmastra, with Ranbir Kapoor has opted for a low-key working birthday.
A source was quoted by a leading daily, "Alia will spend her day shooting. It's a hectic schedule so she can't afford a day off but there will definitely be a celebration on set."
Does that mean Alia will spend her birthday sans her family members? At least that’s what Alia’s mother Soni Razdan has confirmed.
Alia is not expected to return to Mumbai before the end of the month but her parents, Mahesh Bhatt and Soni Razdan, or sister Shaheen, will not be flying down to be with her on her special day this time around. “No we won’t be going to Bulgaria,” Soni confirmed.
It was previously reported that Brahmastra producer and Alia’s mentor Karan Johar had planned to air-dash to Bulgaria but won’t be able to because his mother, Hiroo, turns 75 on March 18 and he is planning a gala to bring in the milestone birthday. “It’s a 10-hour flight to Bulgaria one way and it would’ve got too rushed,” reasons the source.
But no worries, as the Brahmastra team has some plans for Alia. A source said, "It's Alia's 25th birthday, so it's a landmark year in that sense. Ranbir and Ayan want to make the day special for her, especially since she is away from home. So, they have planned a huge surprise party on the sets for the actress. To add to the fun, they have a particular theme for the bash."
