  • Alia couldn't hold back her tears at the performance
Alia Bhatt's birthday celebrations took some time to materialize, at least on social media, but this video shows that the wait was totally worth it.
Alia's actress-turned-filmmaker sister Pooja Bhatt shared this video in which her grandfather, N Razdan, performed a special rendition of the 'Happy Birthday' song (on violin), featuring her grandmother Gertrude (on harmonica). It left Alia in tears - something, as Pooja reveals, is an abundant commodity in the Bhatt household.

Alia also shared a similar video (minus the waterworks) and wrote: "My grandparents wish me happy birthday in the most beautiful way couldn't hold back my tears. #belatedbirthdaycelebration."
Alia turned 23 on March 15 but the actress was busy promoting her new film Kapoor And Sons, which released on March 18. Alia was on a multi-city tour with her co-stars Sidharth Malhotra and Fawad Khan on her birthday. (Also Read: How Sidharth Malhotra Made Alia Bhatt Realise the Value of a Family)
