The Throwback Thursday trend is pretty famous amongst celebrities. They often share old pictures and get nostalgic about their childhood days. Alia Bhatt, who is currently busy in Bulgaria with the shooting of Brahmastra, is being missed by her mom Soni Razdan while she is away. Meanwhile, her mom is sharing some cutest pictures of her daughters Alia Bhatt and Shaheen Bhatt from the time when they starred in movies as kids with Paresh Rawal.
Soni Razdan followed the Throwback Thursday trend and shared the cutest picture of Alia Bhatt looking like a doll in a lehenga while posing alongside a young Paresh Rawal. This was on the sets of Tamanna which starred Paresh and Alia’s step sister Pooja Bhatt. Soni simply wrote, “Oh my oh my where did the years fly … Alia in Tamanna not a very long time ago.”
Alia Bhatt also followed the trend and shared the same picture in which she is flashing a cute smiling with Paresh. She captioned it, “Clearly throwing back this Thursday! Thanks pooj for the trip down memory lane.”
Pooja Bhatt reminisced the time when her sisters Alia and Shaheen got to act alongside her. Remembering those days, “Sister Act!! I was all of 24 when I produced my first film Tamanna-a true life story about a eunuch named Tikku,who during the holy month of Ramzan,found an infant abandoned in a garbage dump,her face half eaten by rats and brought her up as his very own. Tamanna dealt with the discomforting truth of female infanticide that plagues our country and proved that courage & largesse often are attributes of the truly marginalised-in this case a eunuch who gave Tamanna a new shot at life when her own father wanted her dead merely because she was born a girl. It was a dud at the box office but gave me great credibility as an actor and producer,even winning me my first national award. What most people don’t know though is that both my sisters @aliaabhatt & @shaheenb were in it too. Alia played a younger me and Shaheen played Ashutosh Rana’s daughter and even brought her own toys to the shoot which we used as props. So my father cast all three of his daughters in the same film… a fact that has been forgotten with time. I stumbled upon these photos today when I was continuing my obsessive,self assigned task of salvaging the tons of photo albums that lie discarded in a corner of our office. We are nothing but memories and these comprise some of the best!”
On the work front, Alia Bhatt will be next seen in Ayan Mukherji’s Brahmastra starring Ranbir Kapoor and Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy where she will share screen space with Ranveer Singh. Both of the films are scheduled to release next year.
