Alia Bhatt turns heads in red gown at Gr8 Women Awards in Dubai


Alia Bhatt is on a high with her professional success. She gave three hits – ‘Udta Punjab’, ‘Kapoor & Sons’ and ‘Dear Zindagi’ last year, and started the current year with the superhit ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ and also bagged the Filmfare Best Actress Award for her performance in ‘Udta Punjab’.

For all the achievements in just five year of her career, Alia was honoured at the seventh edition of Gr8 Women Awards in Dubai, and the ‘Highway’ actress turned heads in her red-hot look.

Alia looked ravishing in a bright red Christian Dior gown with her hair tied up into a neat bun and red hot lips. For jewellery, she only wore a few rings by Isharya on her fingers and did away with any neck or ear piece.

The actress was styled by Lakshmi Lehr for the event, while Puneet B Saini did her make-up keeping it minimal yet classy. Alia looked was a sophisticated and confident lady as she posed for the cameras.

Both Alia and her stylist shared pictures of her look on their respective Instagram handles.

Apart from Alia, Nimrat Kaur, Parineeti Chopra and choreographer Pony Verma were also awarded. The star-studded ceremony was attended by Vaani Kapoor, Farah Khan, Esha Gupta, Iulia Vantur and Lindsay Lohan.

The event, conceptualised by prominent Indian TV personalities Abu and Shashi Ranjan, was held at the Roda Al Bustan.
