Alia Bhatt on ‘Raazi’ crossing Rs. 100 crore: “Unconventional can be conventional”


The Alia Bhatt starrer ‘Raazi’ (2018) has received immense praise from critics and audiences alike. Having crossed the Rs 100 crore mark at the Indian box Office, Bhatt shares her joy that the film has done well.

Reported on Pinkvilla, in an interview with PTI, Bhatt explains she has always looked for films with a relatibility factor. “Unconventional can also be conventional and commercial if it connects with people. It is essential somewhere to maintain that balance. I was hoping this film (Raazi) strikes a balance and I am happy it did. It also makes me believe in the choices that I make as an actor,” says Bhatt.

The ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhani’ (2017) actor went on to talk about her personal struggles. “My struggles will always be there. It is harder when you have expectations. My struggle is with myself, to outdo and out perform myself, to do something new and different. Just because things are working out for me as an actor in the film industry doesn’t mean I don’t struggle to make it work.”

Sharing her thoughts on the ‘Raazi’ (2018) crossing Rs 100 crore mark, Bhatt says, “Now that the film is being appreciated it all feels worth it. But that doesn’t mean my struggles are over. It will continue as I will have to prove myself with every film. As an actor you are never confident but you are always hopeful about it (success of film). I am grateful to the audience for the love. It gives me confidence to pick up more films like this in future.”

‘Raazi’ (2018) directed by Meghna Gulzar, Bhatt essays a role of an Indian spy, Sehmat Khan who marries a Pakistani Army officer played by Vicky Kaushal. The story is based on the Indo-Pak war in 1971.
