Alia Bhatt's 'Udta Punjab' look draws praise from dad Mahesh Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra

Udta Punjab could very well be the next Highway for Alia Bhatt, whose recently unveiled 'first look' in the film has already got the young actress a whole lot of attention.

On Friday, the makers of the film released Alia's look in the film — that of a girl on the run, looking quite dishevelled and grubby. She plays a Bihari migrant in Udta Punjab.

Alia's look followed those of the other actors in the film, including Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh — all of which had caused quite the social media storm when they were unveiled.

Alia's look, however, got some very special attention from Bollywood.

Her Kapoor & Sons co-star and rumoured beau Sidharth Malhotra was among those who rushed to congratulate the actress. Sidharth called Alia's look a "dramatic, impactful tranformation".

Alia's father, filmaker Mahesh Bhatt too shared the motion poster.

Udta Punjab, a neo-noir drama thriller, is directed by Abhishek Chaubey. Co-produced by Phantom Films and Balaji Motion Pictures, the movie tells the story of substance abuse in the Indian state of Punjab.

The film is slated to release on 17 June.
