Alia says she won't do something as bizarre as going bald for a movie. Alia’s father Mahesh Bhatt has produced several bold movies like ‘Murder’, ‘Jism’, ‘Raaz’ and ‘Kalyug’. The actress says that she doesn't find it tough to take up bold roles. (Agencies)
“I would love to do a film like 'Murder'. As far as my limitations are concerned, I would never shave my head for any role. And so far as bold scenes are concerned, I have no issues at all,” the 20-year-old said.
Alia’s connect with her father goes beyond her appreciation for his work. The actress keeps her personal life private but admits she turns to him for advice regarding her professional decisions.
"I don't discuss my personal life with my father but I discuss my work with him a lot. We have become closer since I have become an actor. My mother (Soni Razdan) tries to ask everything but I keep things to myself," she said.
As a person, Alia believes she is like her father.
"I have his will power. I am like him and I value my audience," she said. Alia is also very sensitive and protective of what people say of her family members.
"I don't like it when people go on about my family. Because of me, they bring in my father and sister (Pooja Bhatt) and I don't like it. Write as much as you want to about my clothes...I don't care but I am very protective about my family,” said Alia.
“It affects me a lot and that’s the only thing that goes down badly. Still, I have a very strong person inside me,” she added.
Nevertheless, her focus is now on Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Highway’ that releases this Friday.
While she made her debut with newcomers Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra, it was a new ballgame to work with an experienced actor like Randeep Hooda in ‘Highway’. Alia admits that she was apprehensive.
“Initially, I was a little apprehensive about it but when you start shooting, you forget the person in you and get more involved with the character, said Alia.
“There were times when I would take lesser takes than Randeep or at times more. B0ut I don't feel it is right to think that if someone is taking a long time for a scene, he or she is not a good actor,” she added.
"I think it's not the take that matters, you must hit the emotions at the right time. If I take eight takes for those emotions, then also it means the same to me," she said.
Alia is confident that "Highway" will get a good opening and she credits this to the movie’s director.
"This film is not about the opening. It is about the word-of-mouth. I think the opening will not be because of me, it will be (because of) Imtiaz. He is a brand name and people have loved his films. And the love for a particular film lasts more than the box office," Alia said.
