Alia Bhatt has never failed to surprise us with her films. From Imtiaz Ali’s Highway to her recent release Raazi, Alia never disappoints. In a conversation with DNA, Alia talked about believing in getting what you deserve and not competing with anyone. Talking about the same, she says, “The minute you start believing that you deserve this, then there’s a problem. If you deserve something, you’ll get it. We shouldn’t try and control things.” The Raazi actor does not believe in competing with her counterparts. “I can’t let that affect my choices. I’ll neither undervalue nor overvalue myself because there’s a certain arrogance that comes along with it. Sometimes you do it for the right reasons, sometimes you don’t,” she added.Also Read - Alia Bhatt-Ranbir Kapoor's Wedding Postponed Yet Again By Over An Year, Here's Why

Talking about pay parity which is an issue both in Hollywood and Bollywood, Alia has a completely different take on why male actors are paid more than females. “Investing money in a film is directly co-related to the people you are bringing to the theatre. I’m not delusional that the same number of viewers who go to watch Varun’s movies will come to see my work. He has a wider reach than me. That’s why I can’t expect that the same amount of money, which is invested in his solo-starrers, is invested in mine, too. Also, it’s the subject that makes a film viable. We can’t be categorical about everything because every actor and movie is different,” she said.

When asked if she would reduce her fees for a film, she replied, “Never say never, but I won’t let go of a movie that I like because of remuneration. I’ll find a way around it. I’ll still do it because the emotional attachment to my work is way more than the monetary one.” Also Read - ‘Flashes Of Time’!
