I can never be a director: Alia Bhatt

Alia Bhatt has showcased her acting prowess and singing skills as well as her fashionable side, but the actress says she will never wear the director’s hat for any project. The daughter of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and yesteryear actress Soni Razdan added that she can plunge into the filmmaking business as a producer, but never as a director.


“Maybe I can produce (films) one day, but I don’t think I can ever be a director because being a director takes a lot. I don’t think I have that capability,” Alia said over the phone from Mumbai.

Since her debut project Student of the Year in 2012, she has delivered laudable performances in films like Highway, 2 States, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, Kapoor and Sons and Udta Punjab. Her only setback was last year’s Shaandaar.

Asked if she takes any guidance from her family, she said: “While making the film no advice comes from my parents. All advice comes from my director.”

The actress will next be seen in director Gauri Shinde’s upcoming Dear Zindagi alongside superstar Shah Rukh Khan. The film will release on November 25. Her fans are excited about this upcoming movie. Both Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt have so far tweeted their conversation making their fans curious bout the movie. This is the first time that Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt are working together for a movie.

In her short career, Alia Bhatt has essayed many characters. Her recent portrayal as a drug addict garnered rave reviews from both critics and fans alike.
