One would think that being the daughter of a very successful and respected filmmaker, it would not be difficult to be launched in the industry by just being flagged under her father’s name. However Mahesh Bhatt’s daughter, Alia, had a different idea.
Making her debut in the upcoming Karan Johar film ‘Student of the Year’, ��Hindustan Times��reported��daughter Bhatt speaking to the media of how she didn’t want to be launched under her father’s banner but wanted��start her career on her own.
And what a great way to debut than to be launched in a film made by one of Bollywood’s��highest grossing filmmakers,��Bhat said,�ʉ��In addition to losing weight and grooming myself in a way that I would be accepted (in the film industry), I also had to audition for the role.�
Produced by Dharma Productions and Red Hot Chillies Entertainment and directed by Johar, ‘Student of the Year’ is due to release sometime this year with a whole host of newcomers including Siddharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan.
