Who has read Harry Potter and isn't a fan of J.K. Rowling's legendary fantasy novels? Well, if you're one of those few smug, hoity-toity individuals, who always love showing how edgy and niche their tastes are, then this is not for you. As for the rest of you normal, beautiful souls, read on to see how Harry Potter continues to impact readers years after the last book was published courtesy a wonderful initiative undertaken by Alia Bhatt during lockdown, which also boasts participation from Hollywood stars like Alec Baldwin.
Yesterday, Thursday, 28th May, Alia Bhatt took to her official Instagram to announce her involvement in the ‘Harry Potter At Home’ initiative, posting a video of herself, reading out an excerpt of chapter 8 from the first of JK Rowling's series of Harry Potter books.
Captioning the post, Alia wrote: “Two months ago Harry, Hogwarts, and the wizarding world walked into my life and almost immediately, in my heart. Somehow, when I was younger life always intervened and I never quite got around to befriending the books. But. Just like magic, two months ago, I did. And, just like magic, I was asked to be a part of Harry Potter at Home”. She also expressed her love for Gryffindor by adding, “10 million points to Gryffindor!” Gryffindor is one of the four houses of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry — an integral part of Rowling's fantasy series.

Great to know that Alia, too ,is a Potterhead.
