Currently riding high on the success of her musical drama Gully Boy, Bollywood’s powerhouse Alia Bhatt has her kitty filled to the brim, what with big-budget films like Kalank and Brahmastra too slated to be released this year. While she wrapped up shooting for the aforementioned films, Alia will soon begin shooting for Mahesh Bhatt directorial Sadak 2, starring Pooja Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapur in the remake of the 1991 super hit.
Talking about her projects that will release ahead of Sadak 2, Alia told Deccan Chronicle in an interview, “It’s a big year for me. All my upcoming films are special and are different from one another. According to me, they are banging stories and I am really looking forward to seeing how all of this stuff will roll out. I am quite confident about all my films but eventually, it is up to the audience.”
Confessing to be scared of working for the first time under her father Mahesh, Alia said while in an interview with Deccan Chronicle, “Right now, I am scared to be directed by my father. He is looking at me every day and saying I am going to get through you. He has an X-ray vision kind of thing.” Isn’t that what all fathers want, to get under their daughters skin and doesn’t that make all daughters repulsive? While we are sure all daughters out their could relate with Alia, the Gully Boy star added, “I have a wall around me every now and then and I let very few people in (cross that wall). My father is waiting to break that wall down. So, I am a little scared but I think it will be fun. We start shooting this year.”
Alia has emerged as a terrific performer. Her trajectory has been amazing considering she hasn’t only done out-and-out commercial films but also movies which have been critically appreciated. Her performance in films like Highway (2014), Udta Punjab (2016) and Raazi (2018) have won her several accolades and love from the audience. Now, with Gully Boy, she has once again proved her mettle in the industry. Alia seems to be on a roll at work.
