IT’S A WRAP FOR 2 STATES! Dad Encourages Alia Bhatt



Alia Bhatt who shot to fame with Karan Johar’s Student Of The year is a busy girl. She has two films in her kitty right now. Imitaz Ali’s Highway with Randeep Hooda and Karan Johar’s 2 States with Arjun Kapoor.

Alia Bhatt auditioned with over four hundred other girls for the sizzling and saucy ‘Shanaya’ in Student Of The Year and as they say the rest is history. Very few know that Alia was never slim, as she was always in love with food especially. It was Karan Johar who pushed her to lose a good fourteen kilos for his film. Much to Karan’s delight Alia reminds him of young Kareena Kapoor.

Coming back to 2 States: Alia recently wrapped up the shoot, where she essays a role of a South Indian girl, Ananya Swaminathan. This little girl got very emotional on the last day of the shoot and went on to express herself on Twitter and wrote, “Well I hope I weep today then like I always do. It’s been beautiful and exciting. Will miss playing the Ananya Swaminathan. Too emotional today. Love You.”

Now, Papa Mahesh Bhatt read Alia’s tweet and replied, “My experience says that when the principal actor ‘weeps’ when a film is over, the maker smiles. This means your film is a hit.”

2 States is based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel of the same name. The film is directed by Abhishek Varman and stars Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in lead roles. Arjun plays the character of Krish Malhotra. The movie is a Karan Johar and Sajid Nadiadwala co-production and will be ready to hit the theatres on April 18, 2014.

Mr. Bhatt we too hope that the film is a blockbuster!
