Ibrahim Ali Khan Birthday 2024: When Alia Bhatt read out his DM on ‘Koffee With Karan 7’


Bollywood’s very own young heartthrob, Ibrahim Ali Khan, celebrated his 23rd birthday on March 5 amid much fanfare in the industry. Known for his strikingly sharp features that echo the suave looks of his father, actor Saif Ali Khan, Ibrahim has been a constant topic of interest, not just for his lineage but also for his dedication to carving out his own niche in the realm of acting.

As the festivities continue, let’s journey back to an endearing moment that transpired between Ibrahim and one of Bollywood’s most versatile actresses, Alia Bhatt. Recall that Ibrahim took to the role of assistant director in Karan Johar’s romantically woven narrative ‘Rocky aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani,’ also graced by the talent of Ranveer Singh. It was during this project that a special interaction between Ibrahim and Alia came to the fore.

Last year, the seventh installment of the much-loved celebrity talk show ‘Koffee With Karan’ featured guests Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh, where some light-hearted and revealing conversations ensued. Alia, adorned with accolades for her powerful portrayal of Gangubai in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi,’ found herself in the show’s spotlight, sharing anecdotes and experiences from her career.

What stood out in this exchange was Alia’s unexpected revelation about having a slight obsession with up-and-coming Ibrahim. While navigating the fun and fiery rapid-fire round, Karan Johar’s inquisitive nature brought about the question of the most cherished compliment Alia received for her role as Gangubai. Among the industry’s shower of praise, she recalled a message that held a special place in her heart—a message from none other than Ibrahim Ali Khan.

Alia recalled his words with a fond smile, “He sent me the most amazing message.” It turned out that Ibrahim, highly impressed by Alia’s transformational performance, took the time to personally message her. His thoughtful words read, “Had to remove the time to message you personally… I cannot believe this is the same lady, I learn from every time, you’re just phenomenal. You’re so so good as Gangu and seeing you as Rani and then watching this film, it’s safe to say you mould yourself effortlessly, like water taking shape of its container. So So good! Best actress in this country.”

Alia’s share on the show became a memorable moment that highlighted the respect and admiration budding talents in the industry have for their established counterparts. The exchange was a testament to the camaraderie and mentorship culture that Bollywood nurtures within its glittering walls.

Furthermore, Alia’s connection with Ibrahim was not just limited to textual appreciation. The ‘Raazi’ actress, known for her vivacious social media presence, posted a delightful video back in 2021 featuring her and Ibrahim channeling the iconic “Poo” from Kareena Kapoor Khan’s character in ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.’ Her ability to engage with her co-stars off-screen has always been a charming aspect of her persona.

As the young scion of the Pataudi legacy steps forward in the industry, rumors are rife about his debut project. Film aficionado and director Karan Johar has teased the possibility of a new venture with a “legacy actor,” leaving many to ponder if Ibrahim will feature in an upcoming film titled ‘Sarzameen,’ believed to also star South Indian heavyweight, Prithviraj Sukumaran, and the timeless Kajol. However, fans will have to bide their time in anticipation as an official declaration is yet to be made.

In the milieu of star kids, fanfare, and ardent followers, every milestone and whisper is a cause for celebration or intrigue. Ibrahim Ali Khan’s evolving journey and the blossoming friendships with stars like Alia Bhatt demonstrate the warm and nurturing side of an industry often viewed through the lens of glamour and competition. As Ibrahim celebrates another year around the sun, the narrative of his young career continues to unfold with promising anticipation.
