It was just a few weeks ago that Alia Bhatt’s age difference with Salman Khan, half or double of each other respectively, became a talking point as they signed Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Inshallah.’ But you can only understand how massive this difference is when you see how little Alia Bhatt looked in front of a young Hrithik Roshan, eight years younger to Salman, in a throwback picture that has surfaced on social media.
The old snap shared by film producer-philanthropist Anu Ranjan, features, apart from Alia and Hrithik, Ranjan’s two daughters with actor Shashi Ranjan, Anushka and Akansha, and fashion designer Masaba Gupta, daughter of Neena Gupta and Vivian Richards.
Ranjan captioned the post aptly, “These are the most adorable ones ,without realising” and we agree.
The picture seems to be around the time Hrithik made his debut with ‘Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai’ in 2000, when Alia would’ve been 6-7 years old.
While Hrithik and Alia definitely stand out due to their popularity today, the most striking point about the picture is how the latter’s friendship with Anushka, Akansha and Masaba have stood the test of time. Not much has changed in terms of their bonding if you go by how they look today.
While Alia often wears Masaba’s designs, she had launched the trailer of Anushka’s debut ‘Wedding Pulav’ in 2015. The actress, however, is the closest to Akansha, who made a cameo in a music video recently and is being tipped for an acting debut, and their pictures flood social media regularly.
Going back in time always freshens up some beautiful memories, and one that’d surely make fans want a Hrithik-Alia film together.
