Alia Bhatt paid tribute to her grandfather who was her “favourite storyteller”.

Sharing unseen childhood pictures, Alia wrote:

“My favourite storyteller… Happy birthday Grandpa, you and your stories live on in our hearts forever.”

Ed Finds A Home is part of a children’s book series “with a focus on inspiring love for nature in the coming generation”.

This is Alia’s first venture into the field of publishing, in tandem with Puffin, part of Penguin Random House India.

She launched the book at the children’s literature festival, StoryVerse, taking place at Jio World Drive in Mumbai on June 16, 2024.

Alia turned entrepreneur in 2020 with Ed-a-Mamma, which sells children’s clothes and maternity wear.

In 2023, it was acquired by Reliance Brands, a subsidiary of billionaire Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Retail, for a reported whopping amount of Rs. 300 Crore.

Alia also owns a production house, Eternal Sunshine Productions, which backed her 2022 dark comedy Darlings, released on Netflix.

She’s also co-producing Vasan Bala’s upcoming theatrical escape drama Jigra with Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. The film is slated to release on October 11.

Apart from Jigra, Alia will also be seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Love & War and an untitled YRF Spy Universe film.
