Alia Bhatt, during her interaction with DNA, revealed that she is enjoying her experience to work with SRK. The actress is so fanatical about the superstar that she doesn’t mind giving her beauty sleep a skip as well. Yes, Alia Bhatt had not slept for several nights during the shoot of the film since, the Raees actor has a habit up staying up late. She said, “It was lovely working with him on the show and on Gauri’s film when we recently shot in Goa. He’s probably the only actor or person in the world whom I probably don’t mind staying awake till 3 am for, just to be able to hang out or interact with him. He’s a late bird and doesn’t sleep because of which I landed up staying awake many a night.” (ALSO READ: OMG! Did Alia Bhatt just confess her love for Sidharth Malhotra? )
