Alia Bhatt is slated to be the next big star of Bollywood as she has come a long with post her debut film Student Of The Year. Alia Bhatt, who sported a de-glam look in her second film Highway, may not be constantly fashionable but she says there is nothing wrong in being fashion conscious.
“I am closer to my second character, Veera. But I don’t think it’s shallow to care about clothes and make-up. Every girl likes to dress up. I didn’t really begin to care about my looks until I started acting. Now I enjoy dressing up. But I am not constantly fashionable.” said Alia Bhatt who is currently adviced bed rest.
It seems the excitement and exhaustion of the past few weeks have finally caught up with Alia Bhatt. First of all shooting Highway was emotionally and physically exhaustive and then started the promotions for the film.
Even before the film was released, Alia was already promoting her next film 2 States and simultaneously shooting nights for Shashank Khaitan’s Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya and dubbing for 2 States. All of this took a toll on Alia and she fell sick.
“She has been advised to rest it out. Alia a livewire and cannot rest easy. You won’t find Alia in the same place for more than five minutes. But for now, she has no choice but to rest.” stated her close friend who preferred to be unanimous.
However the praise for Highway is unprecedented. Someone like Javed Akhtar has compared her performance to Nargis in Mother India and Shabana Azmi in Arth.
But for Alia, the character she essays in 2 States is what comes closest to her. She is very different from the girls that he has portrayed in my first two films. Ananya Swaminathan is strong and mature, which Alia says she is at times.
Here’s wishing this talented actress all the best and we do hope that she gets back to work soon.
