Alia Bhatt wants to be re­mem­bered for the char­ac­ters she does

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

Ac­tor Alia Bhatt, who re­cently joined film­maker and men­tor Karan Jo­har for a talk ses­sion in Delhi, spoke at length about her suc­cess­ful jour­ney in Bol­ly­wood and how she han­dles suc­cess. “I want to be re­mem­bered for the films and roles I do. I give a lot of heart into my char­ac­ters. I’ve no idea of how well I am do­ing, but if I sit back and as­sess each step, I’m go­ing to lose a lot. So, I just go with the flow,” says Alia. Asked about her re­sponse to both crit­i­cism and love that comes her way, Alia says, “Ini­tially I was very vul­ner­a­ble and I was even hun­gry to prove (my­self). But with ex­pe­ri­ence, I re­alised that the only con­stant in life is change. So, to­day I may be get­ting a lot of love, but to­mor­row may be I won’t.” The 24-year-old ac­tor also de­scribes her­self as tech­nol­ogy chal­lenged amongst those present.

Karan, who mod­er­ated the dis­cus­sion, says, “When we talk about my in­dus­try, I feel ex­tremely un­for­tu­nate when we say that we are not on an up­ward swing at the mo­ment. Cin­ema and cricket used to be the two forces of en­ter­tain­ment on our land. But now, we (cin­ema) are fight­ing so many ob­sta­cles in­ter­nally. With other ver­ti­cals, like dig­i­tal and tele­vi­sion grow­ing con­stantly, we are still sur­viv­ing and com­bat­ing re­duced foot­falls in cin­e­mas.”
