Alia Bhatt opens up to the choice of scripts and says that one should not be governed with many barriers and limitations while assuming a role.
Alia Bhatt entered the Bollywood industry marking her debut with the successful Student of the Year by Karan Johar. Offering stellar performances one after another, he closed his trollers who put a nepotism label on him. His films expressed his talent in such a way that the actress was never associated with the word. Experimenting with various roles, Alia has grown as an actor and has rediscovered herself with each movie. From comic hits like Shandaar, Humpy Sharma Ki Dulhania, romantic comedies like 2 States to intense movies like Highway, Udta Punjab, Gully Boy and Raazi, Alia has explored different genres.
Actress Alia Bhatt says that an artist should not face limitations when saying yes to a role, she adds that the public is demanding.
For someone like Alia Bhatt, who has constantly rediscovered herself with different characters on the screen, choosing roles is a factor of her mind and heart. And the interpreter in her cannot let the pressure of expectations tarnish her. At a time when the debate about Kabir Singh refuses to disappear, in fact, Shahid Kapoor recently spoke about playing the title character, which many considered seriously flawed, Alia does not feel that it should affect an artist. The actor, who had worked with Shahid o.n two films, Shaandaar (2015) and Udta Punjab (2016), feels that an artist should explore all kinds of characters on scrseen.
“If I keep too many barriers or limitations in my mind when choosing a movie or the parts offered to me, it would not help me to become a” massive “actor. Cinema is art. As an artist, these are the times when I should let my creative juices flow freely, “says Alia, who was last seen in the Bollywood movie Kalank.
“I prefer to keep an open mind when I read a script or I sit for a story. I work that way … I think I should be open to make different types of characters and try to surprise the audience every time. I should try to establish a balance, entertain the audience and at the same time interpret characters that satisfy my creative impulse, ”she says.
But at the same time, Alia is aware of her responsibility as an actor and social influencer. “Obviously I am responsible as a celebrity and I believe what I am exposing for the audience. But I can’t constantly think “What happens if my character is misunderstood? What happens if the audience doesn’t connect to what I’m playing on the screen? What happens if the character isn’t giving the right kind of message?” Then it would be very difficult for me to do it. Limiting myself, thinking about how people will react to what I’m playing on the screen is harmful, I can’t work like that, “he adds.
When elaborating, the 26-year-old actor says that the public does understand and, therefore, is the best judge. “If I play a murderer in a movie, that does not mean that I am saying that I am supporting the act, I am not a real-life killer either. Such things are quite clear. It’s just another character for me, it is also for the public, who obviously wants to see me doing different roles. So I think the audience understands, “adds Alia.
The actress was last seen in Kalank, Karan Johar’s multistarrer, and is now ready for her next movie Brahmastra sharing screen space with boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor. The film brings together a group of talented actors Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy and Akkineni Nagarjuna in key roles and is scheduled to premiere in December 2019.
