Alia Bhatt, the doted-upon daughter of Mahesh Bhatt and Soni Razdan, was recently at the receiving end of a slap from Randeep Hooda.
Rest assured that Randeep’s slap wasn’t an expression of his annoyance or anger towards the pretty and harmless Alia. It’s just that the two were shooting a scene for director Imtiaz Ali’s film Highway.
We hear that the Student Of The Year debutante, who has never been slapped by her parents, was not shy of being smacked on the face by her strapping co-star on camera because it was all for a scene.
In fact, we wager that Randeep Hooda might have been more wary and cautious doing the scene than Alia Bhatt, and he surely would have taken all care not to hurt her for real. After all, those sinewy biceps of his do store power to give anyone a red cheek.
Alia Bhatt has made a good start in Bollywood and is choosing her films carefully. Apart from Imtiaz’s film, she has also signed the movie adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s book 2 States in which she will be playing South Indian girl. To get into the skin of her character, she’s also said to be learning Bharatnatayam.
