Be it for her latest hit 2 States which recently entered the Rs 100 crore club or for all the hilarious trolls on Facebook, Alia Bhatt has been the latest talk of the town.

Daughter of director Mahesh Bhatt, Alia made her debut in Bollywood in 2012 with Karan Johar’s Student of the Year. Her introductory song in the movie, ‘Gulaabi Aankhein’ had all the guys going gaga over the pretty actress. Tinseltown’s fresh entrant was then paired opposite Randeep Hooda in Imtiaz Ali’s Highway. Alia’s performance in the movie was stupendous and was quite appreciated by everyone. Her upcoming project, Shashank Kahaitan’s  Humpty Sharma ki Dulhaniya is set to go on floors in July.

Being a newbie, she has managed t create a separate place for herself in the hearts of people. Here are three reasons why we strongly feel that she is the new youth icon of 2014:

1) Alia is one of the youngest actors in B- town. She is only 21 years old and has a fresh, charming and childlike face unlike other Bollywood actresses who are already in their late twenties.

2) The young actress is now the brand ambassador for Garnier, Forever 21 and Maybelline New York which are brands that are pretty famous among Indian youth.

3) The prime reason why the Student of the Year actress is ‘trending’ is because of her IQ. We all loved laughing at her silly and stupid answers on Koffee with Karan Season 4 which was the main reason why the Facebook troll page was created!

Whatever it may be, whether you like it or no, Alia does have the chutzpah to light up the screens is definitely up there! Way to go Alia!
