Within six years in the Hindi film industry, Alia Bhatt has become the reigning queen of the box office. She is the one who can carry a film solely on her shoulders. A look back at the box office collection of her films proves that the 25-year-old actor has managed to form a loyal fan base for herself.
As Raazi continues its dominance at the box office with Rs 45.34 crore already in its kitty, it seems 2018 has got another big hit.
