The vibrant and spunky young newbie Alia Bhatt, who made her acting debut in Karan Johar’s super hit, Student of The Year, nearly a year and a half ago, says her father will not have any problems with such scenes. Alia Bhatt, who is busy promoting her upcoming film 2 States, in which she stars opposite Arjun Kapoor, retorted that her father’s films are pretty bold and that he is an open-minded, liberal man, said Alia, who shares an intimate liplock and other bold scenes with Arjun in 2 States, “Have you seen my father’s films (as they are bold)? On screen I am not his daughter. I am an actor. I don’t think he will have any problem.”
Based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel, 2 States is a cross-cultural love story, in which Alia Bhatt plays the role of a Tamilian, Ananya Swaminathan, while her co-star Arjun plays a Punjabi. Rumours have been doing the rounds that the two are in a relationship off-screen too, but Arjun recently denied that saying, “Why do you think this way? Alia and I are friends; we had great time working together.”
2 States is a Dharma Production, and releases on 18 April, 2014.
