Alia Bhatt, daughter of Mahesh Bhatt, is all set to make her Bollywood debut with “Student of the Year“. Karan Johar is directing this movie and he is going out of the box for the first time to make this movie. In a chit chat with the media, she explained about her plans and her experience of acting in the first movie.
She said, “My decision after college was to study acting, but when the movie happened, I said why not learn on the movie. There is no plan B. If someone asks me what I would do if I can’t succeed as an actor, I would say work harder, because there is nothing else I can do. I didn’t want to be launched by Vishesh movies. That would have been an easy option. I had to work for this movie (SOTY). Close to 500 girls auditioned for this movie. If it had been my father’s production, why would he audition 500 girls if I was there?”.
She added, “”I don’t want to be a one-film wonder and then be re-launched after many years. It’s too soon to tell if I am able to create an impression. I need to wait for another five to six movies. I think the acting depends on how determined we are and the drive that we have. If we manage to entertain and thrill the audience and the moviemakers, then I’m sure it will work,” she says.
she says, quite clear that she’s in it for the long haul.
Talking about her experience on the sets, she said, “”I was completely pampered on set. Everything that I wanted, every need, was met. I never felt alone, even though this was my first movie. I felt like a star. There is pressure not only because I come from a movie family but also because this is my first movie. People assume I would have spent a lot of time on my father’s sets. But that’s not true. I have only vague memories of the sets. I used to get very bored, because it would take so long to change from one shot to another. The first few days were a whole new experience. I had never worked on a movie set before. But everyone made me feel comfortable. They made me feel like I was the special star on the set.”
