She also has an elder sister Shaheen Bhatt, who is an author and a much applauded advocate for her mental health and self-care initiatives. Her public admission of her fight against depression led to much positive acknowledgment and discussion around the issue. As a public personality, the 29-year-old actor, married to Ranbir Kapoor, is quite active on her social media handles and we can’t help but notice a few things about Alia Bhatt’s Instagram feed in particular.

Well, her husband Ranbir Kapoor does not have an official Instagram account, but Alia Bhatt is definitely following the respective handles of his mother Neetu Kapoor, sister Riddhima Kapoor Sahni and brother in law Bharat Sahni.

Things about Alia Bhatt’s Instagram Posts That Catches Our Fancy
Alia Bhatt loves vacationing at the beach and that is no secret. One scroll down her Instagram feel and is a testimony to how much comes alive when put into a beach environment. Alia Bhatt is known to often head to national and International beach spots for vacationing with her group of friends and mother. She puts up a lot of candid posts with her having fun in the water. Being a Piscean, we guess she loves being in and around water and it comes so evident through her posts. Giving us some sexy and fun bikini outfit goals, we love her natural skin and petite frame basking in the glory of the beach sun.
Some of the closest people in Alia Bhatt’s life are her bunch of BFF’S Anushka Ranjan and Akanksha Ranjan, her sister Shaheen Bhatt, parents Soni Razdan and Mahesh Bhatt and of course, her boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor. For the same reason, these are also the personalities that can be quite often spotted in her Instagram posts. Alia Bhatt has a very close gang of female friends and her posts reveal her enjoying a great girlie time with her besties. It is a treat to her fans and audiences whenever anyone from her group gets married. At the recent wedding of one of her friends, Alia Bhatt was seen having a gala time in Indian outfits and also doing a special group dance at the cocktail/sangeet ceremony. Such glimpses from her real-life make her very relatable to the young girls who also enjoy such cheerful, exciting moments with their girl gang.
Her normal life on Instagram further makes her personality of a 29-year-old urban girl quite relatable and gives an extension to her screen persona. It is refreshing to see her put up normal posts like a young girl would do. Her recent post wearing a face mask is so endearing. A lot of young girls, taking inspiration from her feel pepped up to click and post their images wearing a face pack. Get inspired for some relaxing self-care session with yourself wearing a hydrating pack in the day and enjoy clicking images.
It is no secret that Alia Bhatt is extremely fond of her cat pets and kittens. In January 2021, when her cat died, she posted about the same on her Instagram handle with an adorable pic. A close scroll through Alia Bhatt’s Instagram handle shows some fun and endearing cat images of hers which are a treat to watch. We totally can’t deny that her unconditional love for her cats does tempt us also to get ourselves a white kitten soon.
At the age of 29, Alia Bhatt sure is an unapologetically real and fierce woman. Probably, she was the same even while she entered the industry young at the age of 19 years. She would come across as quite real, candid and vivacious even in her initial interviews. When it comes to her love life as well, the actress is pretty open about acknowledging her relationships in public. Married to fellow actor Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt’s Instagram account has some very real-time images of the couple. As would be the case with a normal girl who loves talking about her relationship status quo and the love of her life, Alia Bhatt too feels quite overwhelmed sharing her images clicked with Ranbir Kapoor. Her recent post wherein she had an image of both Ranbir Kapoor and her holding hands captioned ‘major missing’ did touch down upon our hearts deep. Such an honest confession of emotions reaffirms our faith in modern-day love and relationships.
Finally, though the initial posts on her Instagram handle had more of candid shots, her profile is also an indication of her evolved experience in art and aesthetics. Her current repertoire is a refined mix of candid shots as well as images from her well-styled photo shoots. Her images offer us quite a bountiful of makeup, hairdo and outfit inspiration. It is no breaking news that the girls mostly sports nude or minimal makeup looks that are so befitting a girl with such feminine facial grace.
Also, if you run painstakingly through Alia Bhatt’s Instagram posts, you would not miss noticing that her captions are peculiarly crisp and short. It is either just a couple of words or a maximum of a line. There are no long detailed captions. We guess this resonates with her real-time personality as well. She does not believe in holding herself answerable or accountable to anyone apart from those that matter. She does not go about writing or elucidating long paragraphs of her emotions or thoughts. She leaves it to her audiences to relate with her captions as per their individual sensibilities.
Must say, with a father like Mahesh Bhatt, she does have imbibed a lot of personality traits from him. Alia Bhatt’s Instagram feed sure is a testimony to her strong and forthright personality.
