Secret behind Alia Bhatt’s pataka tattoo


The secret behind Alia Bhatt’s tattoo is finally out.

A few months ago, when she got the word ‘Pataka’ inked on the nape of her neck, many had associated it with her then soon-to-release film, Highway — especially since the movie has a song with the same title. And Alia didn’t clear the air when she said, “It’s supposed to be a surprise. I won’t even say if it’s temporary or permanent.”


Well, it has now been revealed that the tattoo is for her forth-coming film Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, in which she plays a Punjabi kudi. “I play a firecracker kind of girl and hence the tattoo. It adds to my character and personality,” the actress said.
