Alia Bhatt (right) says she wants to ex­per­i­ment with act­ing in Hol­ly­wood and a web se­ries for a plat­form like Net­flix. The 23-year-old says, not just Bol­ly­wood, she would also like to work in Lol­ly­wood, Tol­ly­wood and even Nol­ly­wood, re­fer­ring to the Pak­istani, South In­dian and Nige­rian film in­dus­tries and ad­mires Net­flix for its va­ri­ety of con­tent and global ac­ces­si­bil­ity.

“Def­i­nitely Hol­ly­wood is some­thing — a des­ti­na­tion that you re­ally reach after, maybe a cou­ple of years after kind of find­ing your feet in In­dian cinema. But I’m go­ing to step into it maybe a lit­tle slower, but def­i­nitely I have plans,” she says.

With that Alia may be fol­low­ing in the foot­steps of the likes of Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Cho­pra, who are al­ready work­ing in the west. Asked if she looks up to any Hol­ly­wood ac­tor, she says, “Jen­nifer Lawrence is some­body I re­ally look up to be­cause I re­ally like the kind of choices she makes. She’ll do the Hunger Games but then she’ll also do the Sil­ver Lin­ings Play­book ... so I prob­a­bly want to start with like a Sil­ver Lin­ings Play­book, some­thing more where there’s more scope for per­for­mance, you know, be­cause I feel like that’s where I’ll re­ally learn.”
