After dominating the box office with Gangubai, Alia Bhatt makes her Hollywood Debut; joins the cast of ‘HEART OF STONE’.

Bollywood Actress Alia Bhatt is set to join the cast of Netflix’s “Heart of Stone,” as she makes her global debut opposite Gal Gadot. Bhatt is already one of the biggest movie stars in India, having won four FilmFare awards. Her recent outing, “Gangubai Kathiawadi,” directed by the legendary Sanjay Leela Bhansali secured the third biggest opening last weekend and the biggest non-holiday opening for a Bollywood film since the start of the pandemic.  The film will release globally on Netflix this spring and has received great reviews singling out her performance in the title role.

Close in the heels of Bollywood actresses- Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, Alia Bhatt will make her opening in Hollywood as she joins Gal Gadot and Jamie Dornan in the Heart of Stone. Heart of Stone will be produced by Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger with Mockingbird’s Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn. Gadot will also be producing with her husband Jaron Varsano through their production company Pilot Wave.

Her 2019 film “Gully Boy,” directed by Zoya Akhtar, premiered at that year’s Berlin Film Festival and has become an international hit, grossing over $25M worldwide to date. The film is available to stream now on Amazon Prime and it was India’s official submission for Best Foreign Language Film for the 2020 Oscars. Recognizing her international appeal (including over 60M followers on Instagram), the Academy inducted her into its 2020 class.
