In Abhishek Chaubey’s next film ‘Udta Punjab’, Alia Bhatt essays the role of a Bihari migrant.��Bhatt said that Chaubey was sceptical about casting her as a Bihari girl in the film.

She told PTI, “I think our director Abhishek Chaubey was sceptical about casting me in the film. I am happy that I am a part of it. This character is completely different from what I am in real life. I felt that there would be out of box things in the film and it has.”

“I had to learn Bihari. Though I talk less in the film, but the dialogues are powerful. For a month or so, I worked on my dialect with the help of a trainer. And for my look, I have to give credit to the costume designer and our director Abhishek Chaubey,” she added.

Bhatt credited her co-star Shahid Kapoor for getting her this film. She said, “I am thankful to Shahid for bringing up this role to me. I wanted to be in this film. It’s a lifetime opportunity. It’s a great story,”

‘Udta Punjab’ also stars Diljit Dosanjh and Kareena Kapoor Khan. The film is set to release on 17th June.
