Bollywood Diva Alia Bhatt Shines At Joy Awards In Saudi Arabia


Mumbai: Alia Bhatt was honoured at the Joy Awards — Saudi Arabia’s largest event recognising and honouring Arab world’s leading artists and their achievements, which is part of Riyadh Season and co-organised by MBC Group — expressing her love for the film industry. 

After receiving the Honorary Entertainment Makers’ Award in Riyadh — the actor from Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani — Alia Bhatt conveyed her profound passion for cinema and expressed gratitude to the event organisers for bringing together a diverse range of talented individuals.

At the award-winning ceremony, Alia said: “It’s a privilege to be here in this nation, the nation that is currently doing so much to unite and bring us all under one roof in the name of cinema. It doesn’t happen very often when countless talents from the West and East come together under one roof and celebrate each other. So, thank you for making this happen.”

She added, “It’s truly an extraordinary night. I’m obsessed with movies, it’s all I know. I’ve said this before, I think when I was born, I came out on ‘Lights, camera, action’. That’s how much cinema means to me. If we are talking about joy, one of the greatest things in our lives is love. Tonight, when I go back home, I take back with me the love of the movies and the love that I felt here in Riyadh. So, thank you so much, and here’s to the magic of movies.”

Alia looked elegant for the event in a chic ajrakh-print saree with a striking trail, complemented by statement gold jhumkas as her only accessory.

Meanwhile, Alia is preparing for her upcoming project, Jigra film, directed by Vasan Bala and co-produced by Karan Johar and Alia. The much-awaited movie is set to release in theatres on September 27, 2024.
