Actress Alia Bhatt has come far since her debut two years back. Today she’s keen to experiment with roles and has no issues doing bold scenes. Check out this interview with the actress.
Alia Bhatt already seems to be getting experimental - after playing a fashion-conscious and arrogant young girl in her debut film "Student Of The Year" she will now be seen as a deglamourised character in "Highway". She says she won't do something as bizarre as going bald for a movie, but she's game to being bold.
Her father, filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, is known to have produced several bold movies like "Murder", "Jism" "Raaz" and "Kalyug" and Alia doesn't find it tough to take up bold roles.
So what if she started her career with a typical Karan Johar film? The actress said: "I would love to do a film like 'Murder'."
"As far as my limitations are concerned, I would never shave my head for any role and so far as bold scenes are concerned, I have no issues at all," the 20-year-old told IANS in an interview here.
Her connect with her father goes beyond her appreciation for his body of work. She keeps her personal life private, but admits she turns to him for advice regarding her professional decisions.
"I don't discuss my personal life with my father, but I discuss my work with him a lot. We have become closer since I have become an actor. My mother (Soni Razdan) tries to ask everything, but I keep things to myself," she said.
"I have his will power. I am like him and I value my audience," she said.
Alia Bhatt is also very sensitive and protective of what people say of her family members.
"I don't like it when people go on about my family. Because of me, they bring in my father and sister (Pooja Bhatt) and I don't like it. Write as much as you want to about my clothes...I don't care, but I am very protective about my family.
"It affects me a lot and that's the only thing that goes down badly. Still, I have a very strong person inside me," said the petite actress, who wonders if the people who write stories about her repeating her clothes, ever repeat their clothes or not!"
Nevertheless, her focus is now on the Friday release of Imtiaz Ali's "Highway".
