MUMBAI: Newcomer Alia Bhatt says that her father Mahesh Bhatt and her mentor Karan Johar, who is launching her with his directorial venture “Student of The Year” (SOTY), are experts in their genre of cinema and she can’t choose between the two.
“The kind of films my father has made, like ‘Zakhm’, ‘Arth’, ‘Saaransh’, are very intense films. Karan, as we all know, is very youth-oriented, glossy, fun. So I can’t choose between my teacher and my father. I would say I love both of them,” the 19-year-old said here Wednesday at a promotional event for “SOTY.”
Apart from Alia, two new faces – Varun Dhwawan and model Siddharth Malhotra – will be introduced to the audiences when “Student of The Year” hits theatres Oct 19.
