Not stand­ing op­po­site Bebo in our film: Alia Bhatt

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

Alia Bhatt (above), who re­cently starred with Shahid Kapoor in a ro­man­tic com­edy, is now geared up for an­other film with Shahid, which also stars Ka­reena Kapoor Khan (in­set) and Diljit Dosanjh. The ac­tor says that con­trary to re­ports, she will not be “stand­ing op­po­site” Ka­reena in the film.

“I’m not stand­ing op­po­site her (Ka­reena) in the film. There are four dif­fer­ent tracks in the film. Her track is dif­fer­ent from mine. Sim­i­larly, Shahid and Diljit Dosanjh will have their own track,” Alia says.

The film, which is cur­rently un­der pro­duc­tion, will see Alia act­ing along­side an­other fe­male ac­tor for the first time. Asked if she feels com­pet­i­tive in Bol­ly­wood, the daugh­ter of film­maker Ma­hesh Bhatt and ac­tor Soni Raz­dan, says: “Com­pe­ti­tion is in­evitable in life. But one should not pay too much at­ten­tion to all that is hap­pen­ing around. We are all do­ing good work ... we are just proud and happy for each other.”

And does she feel the pres­sure of be­ing a star kid? “I didn’t make my film de­but with my fam­ily pro­duc­tion. So it has noth­ing to do with whether I come from a film back­ground or not. Se­condly, my ex­pec­ta­tions are to please those who ap­pre­ci­ate my work,” says the 22-year-old, adding: I just wish to please them (au­di­ence) and keep them happy. I try to per­form as many ver­sa­tile char­ac­ters as I can.”
