Behind every successful actor, there is someone who encouraged them to chase their dreams. No wonder then, even after tasting success, most actors go the extra mile to acknowledge the role their mentors played in their lives. Here are some of our favourite Bollywood stars who believe they wouldn’t have been where they are, if not for the guiding forces of their gurus.
Alia Bhatt and Karan Johar
Alia Bhatt has always been vocal about her love and admiration for the director who launched her in Student of the Year (2012). Not only does she consider Karan Johar to be her “eternal mentor,” the Raazi (2018) actor also shares a wonderful camaraderie with the filmmaker and believes that she owes a lot of her work ethic to him. She is also known to be very close to his twins—Yash and Roohi.
