Alia Bhatt had three releases this year and all worked in various capacities. If Highway helped her instill in people the faith that she definitely can act, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and 2 States proved she is complete package. But it isn’t the films that are making her more famous but the shorts that she keeps participating in. After a spoof video on herself and her IQ levels, she worked with Vikash Behl, the Queen director, to come up with message based short called Going Home!
Eversince the video was posted on social networking websites, it went viral. Given the kind of women empowerment themes Vikas endorses, it wasn’t surprising to see him directing yet another one. Alia again excels in the video and even called it very special. The video is about a fictional time when women will be able to roam around at night without the fear of being leched or violated.

The film shows Alia Bhatt driving home assuring her mother she will be there very soon when suddenly her car breaks down. She tries to revive but to no avail. Just then a car with a bunch of guys smoking and drinking who were ogling at her all this time, stops next to her car. It is easy to think the obvious but here the short makes a detour. Rather than taking advantage of her at the dead of the night, the guys try to fix her car and when that doesn’t yield anything, they drop her home.
Well, in today’s time this is only possible in an alternate universe. But a great attempt nonetheless.
