Alia Bhatt wants to be remembered for the characters she does
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.”
