The camaraderie between Alia Bhatt and Kriti Sanon became evident on social media as they celebrated their well-deserved wins. The moment that stole the hearts of fans occurred when Kriti Sanon took to Instagram to share an endearing snapshot of herself and Alia Bhatt.

Kriti’s caption revealed the shared joy and excitement, saying, “Aliaaaa! @aliaabhatt Our smiles say it all! Will remember our moment we shared just before getting on stage.” She also made a playful mention that the charming picture was captured by none other than Alia’s husband, Ranbir Kapoor.
Alia Bhatt, in response to Kriti’s post, re-shared it with a heartfelt message. She congratulated Kriti, affectionately calling her “mimi” and expressed how much more special the day was because of the moment they shared.
