Alia Bhatt currently has a lot on her plate. After giving back to back hits with Kapoor & Sons, Udta Punjab and Dear Zindagi last year, the 23-year-old actress is all set to take the box office by storm with Badrinath Ki Dulhania alongside Varun Dhawan.
While with Udta Punjab Alia had established herself as an artist, with Dear Zindagi the actress was able to prove her versatility especially given her comfort of working with a senior actor, Shah Rukh Khan.
In addition to the movie doing wonders at the ticket counters, the Gauri Shinde steered film was also in news for the out of the box pairing it brought along with SRK mentoring a young girl Alia.
Talking about the film to a leading daily and the doorways of such fresh pairings that it has opened she said, Especially today, when the story has the scope of getting any two people together — whoever they may be. It’s eventually a story of two or three people and they can be of different age groups. Now, we are not only confined to doing love stories anymore. We have other stories as well. Dear Zindagi, in the end, was a very different kind of a love story. That’s the beauty of movies.”
Alia also confessed that she is in talks to star in another film with a senior actor and revealed, “There have been talks. I won’t deny that. But nothing’s official as of now.”
Meanwhile, BKD has got a good start on its opening day. Becoming the second highest opener of the year after Raees, the romantic comedy has earned Rs. 12.25 on its first day.
