Alia Bhatt has come a long way in Bollywood. Even though her most recent release, Kalank was a commercial flop, the 26-year-old actress has formed a solid fan base, with the variety of roles. In 2018, the Kapoor & Sons actress was critically acclaimed for her performance in Meghna Gulzar’s Raazi. She reappeared in a supporting role in Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy opposite Ranveer Singh, which has recently been nominated for the prestigious Academy Awards.

The other nominees for the award includes Chinese actress Zhou Dongyu, South Korean singer-songwriter CL, South Korean actress Jung Yu-mi, Malaysian singer-songwriter Yuna, Thai model Chutimon Chuengcharoensukying, Thai actress Praya Lundberg and Indonesian actress Raline Shah. The winner of the Most Inspiring Asian Woman will be chosen on the basis of an online pole, which is currently open till October 18.
The winning of Alia Bhatt will fetch another People’s Choice Award, to India, after Priyanka Chopra Jonas. PeeCee was the first Indian to bag the Favorite Actress Award in a New TV Series in the year 2016 and the Favorite Dramatic TV Actress Award in the year 2017, for Quantico. On the work front, Aliya Bhatt will be next seen in Brahmastra, Sadak 2 and Takht.
