Alia Bhatt was called “Aishwarya Rai” on the 2023 MET Gala red carpet.
Alia Bhatt made her 2023 MET Gala debut on Monday (Tuesday, IST). She was a vision in white, however, she was confused with Aishwarya Rai by a media outlet.
Alia Bhatt was misidentified as Aishwarya Rai Bachchan on the 2023 MET Gala red carpet. Gangubai star Kathiawadi made her debut at the prestigious Monday Night (Tuesday Morning IST) fashion event in New York City and made the pride of of Bollywood. She was also joined by another Bollywood-Hollywood star, Priyanka Chopra, at the gala, who came with her husband, singer Nick Jonas.
As Alia looked like a pro on the red carpet wearing a voluminous one lakh beaded dress designed by Prabal Gurung, a video of the actress mistaken for Aishwarya is going viral. In a video shared by fans on Twitter, Alia was seen posing on the iconic MET Gala steps when a photographer was heard calling Alia’s attention. Unfortunately, they called her Aishwarya instead of Alia (listen carefully to second 0:08 in the video below). “Aishwarya, over here,” was heard from a photographer.
Although the mistake was embarrassing, Alia didn’t let it affect her. The actress graciously looked at the cameras and smiled before heading to the event.

Alia enthusiastically shared her look from her first appearance at the MET Gala on Instagram shortly after walking the red carpet. “I’ve always been fascinated by Chanel’s iconic brides. Season after season, the genius of Karl Lagerfeld has shown itself in the most innovative and impressive couture. My look tonight was inspired by that and in particular supermodel Claudia Schiffer’s 1992 Chanel bridal look,” she said, sharing a sneak peek of her look.
“I wanted to do something authentic (hello, pearls!) and proudly made in India. The embroidery, done with 100,000 beads is a labor of love from @prabalgurung. I’m so proud to wear you to my first Met. A girl can never have too many pearls…and the right accessories to complete the look which in our case resulted in the pearl bow on my hair. Oh, and it’s white, for my Choup-ED,” she added.
