Speaking of her daughter, Bhatt was recently quoted by a leading daily saying, “She is, compared to my other two daughters, Pooja and Shaheen, the most balanced. Alia has a very passionate demeanour, a way of expressing what she feels with intensity, but she is a very steady flame. She is like me — punctual and meticulous about what she is thinking and delivering what she has taken responsibility of. You can’t have a career like this by being ‘eccentric’ or half-hearted about things.”
Alia started off her acting career as a rich, snooty high school girl in Karan Johar’s Student of The Year and then went on to play a sexually abused girl in dark and gritty Udta Punjab. In just a little more than five years, Alia Bhatt has managed to become one of the most sought-after talents in Bollywood and a favourite of many off-beat directors like Abhishek Chaubey, Imtiaz Ali and Zoya Akhtar.
The actress will now essay two starkly different characters in Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy, where she plays a girl from Dharavi and Ayan Mukerji’s sci-fi romance Brahmastra. Alia will be also seen in Meghna Gulzar's intense drama Raazi this year.
