Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif – Nykaa

In July 2020, Alia Bhatt made an investment of 4.95 crore in Falguni Nayar’s Nykaa. By the time the company was listed on November 10, 2021, Bhatt’s initial investment had multiplied significantly to 54 crore, marking an extraordinary growth of about 11 times.

Similarly, in 2018, Katrina Kaif established a joint venture with Nykaa, named Nykaa-KK Beauty, with an initial investment of 2.04 crore. By the time of the company’s listing, Kaif’s investment had also grown substantially to 22 crore, representing an almost 11-fold increase.
