ALIA BHATT AWARDED AT JOY AWARDS, RIYADH
Alia Bhatt was honoured at the esteemed Joy Awards in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, where she received the Honorary Entertainment Makers Award. The 'Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani' actor conveyed her profound love for the world of cinema and extended her thanks to the event organisers for uniting a range of talented individuals.
Alia's acceptance speech at the event is now going viral on social media. After receiving her trophy, she said, "It's a privilege to be here in this nation, the nation that is currently doing so much to unite us all 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. One of the things, if we are talking about joy, one of the greatest things in our lives is love. So 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."
For the occasion, Alia wore a stylish ajrakh-print saree with a dramatic trail, with statement gold jhumkas as the sole accessory.
