Actress Alia Bhatt talks about Vishesh Films and her role in Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Highway’… Ever since making her debut, Alia has signed three other big banner films but none of them are with Vishesh Films production… The actress has also turned singer with this film and has sung two songs “Sooha Saha” and “Patakha Guddi” composed by music maestro AR Rahman…
Alia Bhatt, daughter of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, is yet to work with her family production house and the young actress says she will wait till the right film comes her way. The 20-year-old actress, who made her Bollywood debut in 2010 with Karan Johar’s ‘Student Of The Year’, did work in Mukesh Bhatt’s ‘Sangharsh’ where she played the young Preity Zinta. Ever since making her debut, Alia has signed three other big banner films but none of them are with Vishesh Films production. “I am not being offered any film. They are launching other people… Giving 100 crore to other people. But jokes apart I think they are waiting for the right project and the right time. Till now nothing has come my way. It will happen. And when it does it will be with a bang,” Alia said. The actress will be seen in director’s Imtiaz Ali’s road drama ‘Highway’, in which she will be seen in a de-glamorised avatar in the film as city girl Veera, who gets kidnapped and eventually finds freedom in her bondage.
When asked how she researched for her character, Alia said, “My only training came from Imtiaz. I don’t like to get reference from anyone because the spontaneity goes away. Unless it really requires like if I play a lawyer or something then I will do some research for body language. “This film required my character to be me. This urban city girl, who has been untouched. The character really fascinated me, especially her transition,” she added. The actress has also turned singer with this film and has sung two songs “Sooha Saha” and “Patakha Guddi” composed by music maestro AR Rahman.
But Alia is not considering it as a career option and feels playback singing should not be eliminated. “We have got some really good playback singers… The industry has some beautiful voices. It is interesting also that actors do their own singing. I don’t know about singing in other films but I am intrigued to learn music. Rahman sir insisted that I should learn,” Alia said. ‘Highway’ also stars Randeep Hooda.
