Fam­ily sup­port keeps Alia Bhatt go­ing

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - HTCITY LIFESTYLE -

Ac­tor Alia Bhatt (right) says there is an un­der­ly­ing feel­ing of in­se­cu­rity in the world of glitz and glam­our, with many fac­tors mak­ing “you wary about your po­si­tion”.

Alia’s fil­mog­ra­phy is like a Bol­ly­wood re­port card of a bright stu­dent. Since her de­but project Stu­dent of the Year in 2012, she has de­liv­ered laud­able per­for­mances in films like High­way, 2 States, Humpty Sharma Ki Dul­ha­nia, Kapoor and Sons and Udta Pun­jab. Her only set­back was last year’s Shaan­daar.

Asked about the in­se­cu­ri­ties a star has, Alia said: “The pres­sure to per­form with each film, and for the film to do well at the box of­fice make one feel­ing in­se­cure and vul­ner­a­ble. But the only way to deal with it is sup­port from fam­ily and friends,” says the daugh­ter of film­maker Ma­hesh Bhatt and yes­ter­year ac­tor Soni Raz­dan. “Then, I think you have to en­joy your work... I am a se­ri­ous worker, but I don’t take my­self se­ri­ously and that’s im­por­tant,” adds Alia.
