"I was born filmy," says Alia Bhatt who will be seen on the couch with her mother on Starry Nights 2. Oh! this Sunday
While Alia Bhatt, the Gully Boy actress is basking in the glory of the film's success, her BFF, her mom will be opening a box of secrets about the superstar on Starry Nights 2. Oh! this Sunday. Alia who will be seen in Brahamastra, Takht and Kalank later this year will appear on Komal Nahata's chat show with her mother.
The trendsetter and the darling of media, Alia will also reveal on the show about how she was told as a child that her name meant a star up in the sky. When quipped about being the ‘filmy kid’ that she was, the actress mentioned, “I used to have a performance ready every Sunday. My grandparents would come home, I would perform for them. I used to take a CD to my mother’s friend’s houses and I would dance. I was born filmy.” Comparing herself to her sister, she went on to add, “Shaheen was the opposite. She was the quiet one and would read thousands of books. She was way more intelligent. She is a very ‘proper’ type of girl.” When not on the sets giving some stellar performances, Alia finds herself doing a lot of activities or nothing at all, she says, “I enjoy working out, swimming and anything that’s activity driven. Apart from that, just lying down and reading a book on a rainy day is amazing.”
At the age of 25, Alia has a filmography that many of her colleagues in the industry are envious about. Whether it was her performance in a film like Highway or a commercial film like Badrinath Ki Dulhania, she never fails to delight the audiences that adore her. So, when she was asked as to whether she ever gets tired of working so hard, she says, “I do get tired, but I like that tiredness. At the end of the day I go back home, and I do not even know my name, THAT kind of tired. So, when I take a break after shooting for a film, I feel like I have earned it.”
Being the social media savvy actress that she is, there are many things that we do not know about Alia. When Soni Razdan was asked to reveal a thing or two that no one knew about Alia, she said, “Alia, sometimes has a bad temper.”
