Alia Bhatt mistaken as Aishwarya Rai Bachchan by New York paparazzi at the Met Gala 2023

Indian actress Alia Bhatt who just made her debut at the Met Gala 2023, was mistaken as Aishwarya Rai Bachchan by the paps at the event.

Indian actress Alia Bhatt just made her enchanting debut at the Met Gala 2023, captivating the hearts of everyone with her gorgeous white princess-like gown by Indian designer Prabal Gurung and crafted with 100,000 pearls, looking absolutely amazing.

But what caught the attention of everyone was that the 30-year-old actress was mistaken for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan by the paparazzi from New York at the red carpet event. However, many Indian fans believe that it was all planned as the paps of New York were seeking revenge for the time when their Hollywood celebrities including supermodel Gigi Hadid, actor Tom Cruise, and actress and model Zendaya were mispronounced by their names at the Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre launch event.


A video from the event is going viral on social media platforms, where the paps were seen shouting Aishwarya’s name when Alia Bhatt was posing for the cameras. However, Alia Bhatt, on the other hand, was praised for handling the situation maturely and full of grace and confidence as she kept continuing her presence in front of the cameras with a wide smile on her face.

On May 2, 2023, the Gangubai Kathiawadi actress took over her Instagram and shared some of her beautiful pictures from the event with her massive following of 77.1 million followers. She captioned the post, “Met Gala – Karl Lagerfeld: a Line of Beauty”. The actress continued with a long paragraph expressing her gratitude for the opportunity.

Alia Bhatt is all ready to make her much-awaited Hollywood debut with Netflix’s original series ‘Heart of Stone’, which is scheduled to hit the screens on August 11, 2023.
