In 2012, Bhatt made her debut in Karan Johar's Student Of The Year along with Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan. Her performance were appreciated with film critic Taran Adarsh from Bollywood Hungama stating, "Alia's role is reminiscent of Kareena Kapoor in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham . Stylish, classy, born with a silver spoon, she's someone who loves to flaunt not just her clothes and bags, but also her riches.

Extremely photogenic , Alia makes a super-confident debut. In fact, all three, Siddharth, Varun and Alia, are here to stay!". film critic Rajeev Masand from CNN-IBN wrote, "Alia Bhatt is cute as the clueless Shanaya, if a little raw" film critic Komal Nahta commented, " Alia Bhatt ends up with a very dumb-blonde role who has to do standard ramp poses for the camera but she performs ably".Raedita Tandan from Filmfare wrote, "Among the performances, Sidharth, Varun and Alia do their best not to seem like newcomers and they emerge triumphant. And Alia definitely has what it takes to be a star. The three make confident debuts".
film critic Anupama Chopra form Hindustan Times commented, "The leading lady, Shanaya, played by Alia Bhatt, carries Hermes bags. She's like Poo from Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham but without the killer attitude. Shanaya is substituting her lack of family ties with designer labels. The boys are also given simplistic backstories to explain why they are the way there are".Student of the Year stood at an all India collection of INR70 crore (US$12 million) after its four weeks run and was eventually declared a financial success. Bhatt is all set to appear in Imtiaz Ali's Highway alongside Randeep Hooda, for which filming has ended. She is currently shooting for Karan Johar and Sajid Nadiadwala's joint production 2 States alongside Arjun Kapoor.
