The 2023 Met Gala took place at New York's Metropolitan Museum Of Art earlier this week, at which, Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt finally made her debut. Alia wore a heavily pearl embellished Prabal Gurung gown and stayed close to the designer throughout her walk across the famed Met steps. However, what might have come as a damp squib was the fact that international paparazzi mistook her for Aishwarya Rai. In a video, a photographer called out to her to capture the right angle by saying, "Aishwarya, this way." Oh well. It was her first Met Gala so they'll probably recognize her the next time around.
