Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt, who has starred with Shahid Kapoor in the romantic comedy Shaandaar, says she will feature in her very own story in the approaching movie Udta Punjab and won’t be “standing opposite” Kareena Kapoor Khan in the movie.
“I’m not standing opposite her (Kareena) in Udta Punjab. There are four different tracks in the film. Her track is different from mine. Similarly, Shahid and Diljit Dosanjh will have their own track,” Alia
Udta Punjab, which is presently under production, would function as the first time when Alia will star alongside another actress in a movie.
Asked whether she feels competitive in Bollywood, the daughter of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, said:
“Competition is inevitable in life. But I don’t think that one should pay too much attention to what is happening around. We are all happy people doing good work and just proud and happy for each other, in fact.”
Alia said: “When I made my debut, I didn’t make it in my family production. So it has nothing to do whether I come from a film background or not. Secondly, my expectations and the pressure that I feel is to please the people who watch and appreciate my work.”
“I just wish to please them (audience) and keep them happy. I try and hope to do as many versatile characters as I can.”
Alia began her career with Student Of The Year and has influenced cine-goers with Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, 2 States and Highway.
