Blessed to work with Kareena in 'Udta Punjab', Alia Bhatt


Alia Bhatt is sharing screen space with Kareena Kapoor in ‘Udta Punjab’ and the ‘Highway’ actress feels lucky to work with Kareena Kapoor.

Directed by Abhishek Chaubey of ‘Ishqiya fame’, ‘Udta Punjab’ features Shahid Kapoor and Punjabi star Diljit Dosanjh in lead roles and is being produced by Phantom Films and Balaji Motion Pictures.

The film is based on the drug dwellers in the state and Shahid Kapoor has undergone image makeover for the movie.

“It is too soon to talk about the project. I feel blessed that I will work with her (Kareena). I am really happy to share screen space with her. It’s a big deal for me,” Alia said.

“I have been on the sets when she was shooting and I was observing her the way she acted. I learnt from the way she did her scenes. She is my idol. In real life, she is a warm, down-to-earth to person,” she said.

Debuted with Karan Johar’s ‘Student of the Year’, Alia Bhatt has created a niche in Bollywood with her stupendous performance in ‘Highway’, ‘2 States’ and ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’.

Besides ‘Udta Punjab’, Alia Bhatt is working on Vikas Bahl’s ‘Shaandaar’ with Shahid, ‘Kapoor and Sons’ opposite Sidharth Malhotra and Karan Johar’s ‘Shuddhi’ with Varun Dhawan.

“There is pressure but it is not because I am having big films to shoot. I think whatever work you do, there is going to be some kind of pressure. I am not getting scared... I’m rather excited. I just hope people like all my films and I am able to entertain the audience,” Alia said.
