Alia Bhatt breaks down on stage as sister Shaheen opens up on her battle with depression
The actor had made it clear soon after her arrival on stage that if she cries, she will not stop.
Talking about Shaheen, Alia said that despite living with her for her entire life (26 years), she got to know about what her sister was going through only after reading her book. She said, “I felt terrible as a sister. I didn’t put myself out there enough to understand her.”
The actress when on to say, "What makes me even more emotional is because I have really, always believed that she is the most brilliant person in the family. And to some extent, she has not believed that about her own self and that always broke my heart.”
But on a happier note, Alia celebrated the moment with her sister on Instagram with a picture of the two with the caption: "Here comes the sun. No better feeling than talking about your sisters first book! @shaheenb you are brilliant and I love you! Thank you @barkha.dutt for the platform! This will truly be a memory for lifeeeee!!! #wethewomen #neverbeenunhappier"
