Alia talked about the ups and downs in her career with superstar Shah Rukh Khan in an episode of Lux Golden Divas – Baatein with the Badshah, read a statement.
The daughter of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt said, “Touch wood, 90 percent of my films fared well at the box office. But there has been one failure, and because of that failure, I am more calm… Some strange reason. Shaandaar didn’t work at the box office. I was heartbroken. I could not believe it.”“I turned to my father. He was the only person I was speaking to and then I went on a holiday solo to mourn the loss,” Alia added.
The Udta Punjab star also said, “I felt terrible, but after that I felt ‘ho gaya’ (it’s done). The bandage has been ripped. I have faced my first failure, and I will be ready for whatever comes. Getting up after the failure is very different. My father sent me this poster with Frank Sinatra’s quote ‘The best revenge is massive success’.”Alia is currently busy filming her upcoming venture Raazi and will soon start Ayaan Mukherjee's Brahmasutra.
