Alia Bhatt celebrated her 26th birthday on Friday with family and friends and also shared a clip on Instagram, making an announcement about a story of a girl and her dog. While it is not clear if it is a film or web series but it is inspired from her mother’s bedtime stories when Alia was a child.

Sharing it, Alia wrote: “As as child I looked forward to my mom reading me bedtime stories. I would reread them and reread them. And I can’t wait to bring to you guys one such story about a little girl and her dog. Coming soon.”

The clip shows a little animated girl, with her back to the camera, sitting on a rock with her pet and with the open expanse of a water body (perhaps the sea) in front. The girl’s hair is untied and she is wearing a printed pink shirt and green shorts or skirt. She holds on to a little brown dog.

Alia’s popularity with, not just her fans, but peers and contemporaries in Bollywood can be gauged from the number of birthday wishes that came her way.

Wishing the ‘sunshine’ girl was the entire cast of her film Kalank. Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha and Madhuri Dixit, celebrated her birthday by sharing a brand new poster of Roop, Alia’s character from the film.

Alia’s Raazi co-star Vicky Kaushal also extended his wishes for the actor and taking to his Insta story, posted a picture of her, seemingly from the sets of Raazi and wrote, “Happy Birthday Aalia”.

Katrina Kaif also wished the actor by posting a fabulous of Alia on her Insta story and wrote, “Happy birthday Alu, may you rise to greater and greater heights.”

On the occasion, Alia also released a teaser of her mother Soni Razdan’s upcoming film, No Fathers In Kashmir.

Sharing it, she wrote on Twitter, “What a great birthday gift mum Soni Razdan gave me! The teaser of ‘No Fathers In Kashmir’ by India’s youngest Oscar nominated director Ashvin Kumar. Girl from London meets boy from Kashmir. What a stunning pair these teens make - just can’t wait to see it.”
