Alia Bhatt recently won the Filmfare Best Actress award for her fabulous performance in Udta Punjab. Quite obviously, daddy Mahesh Bhatt is extremely happy about his daughter winning accolades and making him proud.
While many wondered why he was absent from the event, and what was his reaction to his daughter’s winning the award, Alia told MumbaiMirror:
Dad doesn’t go to any award functions unless he is presenting a trophy to a dear friend. But even though he was not there in person, he was there in spirit. He had asked my manager, Grishma, to put her cellphone on speaker if I won. He texted me later, saying he loved my speech. When I wondered how he had heard it, I learnt this. Dad later posted on our WhatsApp family group that he was excitedly doing cartwheels all night.
Aww! So cute!
