Commenting on the Bhatt’s investment, Nykaa’s CEO and founder Falguni Nayar said, “Alia and I had a very interesting conversation about how both she and Nykaa were launched in 2012. I loved her clarity of thought and got a glimpse of that keen mind which has placed her on ‘Forbes 30 Under 30’ list. I really admire how much Alia has achieved at such a young age and the sheer diversity of characters she has portrayed on film with so much depth.”
