Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Ac­tor Alia Bhatt (right) says that no mat­ter what the bud­get or scale of the film, ev­ery time she does a film, she feels but­ter­flies in her stom­ach. “I feel pres­sure be­fore ev­ery film, whether it’s big or small. I don’t feel like I should take any­thing for granted,” says Alia, who’ll be seen in Karan Jo­har’s up­com­ing pro­duc­tion. “There is pres­sure (for KJo film too), but it is good pres­sure. I am not feel­ing bogged down. I’m ex­cited about the film and I want to put up a great show,” says the 22-yearold who is team­ing up with ac­tor Varun Dhawan again af­ter Stu­dent of the Year (2012) and Humpty Sharma Ki Dul­haniya (2014). “I hope we live up to that ex­pec­ta­tion and en­ter­tain our au­di­ence,” she says. And talk­ing about the di­rec­tor who launched her, Alia says that Karam is quite a fa­therly fig­ure for her. “Karan is like a fa­ther to me... that is the bond I share with him. Whether we are work­ing on a film to­gether or any other pro­ject, it is so much fun. We are com­fort­able with each other and the chem­istry is right,” Alia says. All of Alia’s films till date have been hits, and she is glad with the suc­cess each of her projects. “I’m not sit­ting, tak­ing a back­seat and think­ing I have achieved a lot. I don’t feel I have achieved any­thing. I have a long way to go. I have just started. More than be­ing con­tent, I am ex­cited, en­er­getic and ner­vous to do more good films,” Alia said.
