Alia Bhatt Bemused By Lootera

Alia Bhatt, the daughter of Bollywood director Mahesh Bhatt has been reportedly baffled upon watching the period film, Lootera. The young actress is so drawn towards the concept of a period film that she has expressed her desire to feature in one, at least once in her Bollywood career.

Alia is a style diva as was evident from her first film. The styling elements used in a period film and the immaculate detailing to recreate every aspect of a different era have overwhelmed her. The freedom of playing with vibrant colors away from the cliché fashion of her generation has appealed to her like nothing.

She is all praises for the movie and the depiction of the characters by Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha. She has appreciated the subtlety and the beautiful picturesque narrative of the movie.

Alia Bhatt has meanwhile earned a lot of praise for her debut role as Shanaya in the movie Student of the Year. While the film itself was a commercial success and raked in 70 crores at the box office, Alia was admired for her spontaneity and stylish portrayal of her character. She was compared to Kareena Kapoor in Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham and has been labeled as extremely photogenic by leading photographers. That almost sounds like a dream debut.

Alia has followed up her success by being the face of Maybelline and Garnier in India and is also featuring in an advertisement for Coca Cola along with her Student of the Year co-stars Varun Dhawan and Siddhrath Malhotra. She has also completed shooting for Imtiaz Ali’s next film titled Highway, opposite Randeep Hooda.

Another ambitious project on the cards is 2 States, based on the bestselling novel by Chetan Bhagat. It is a joint venture of Karan Johar and Sajid Nadiadwala and stars Arjun Kapoor. As far as her career is concerned, Alia has a fair idea of what she wants it to be like.

She wants to feature in the maximum number of films she can but she also wants to avoid being redundant in her films. Identical roles is what she wants to avoid. She wants each of her roles to challenge her to do something entirely different, to tread on a territory where others haven’t. We have to wait and watch how the Times of India’s most desirable woman of 2012 follows up her sound start in the industry.
