Alia Bhatt to play journalist Barkha Dutt in biopic helmed by Hansal Mehta?

Alia Bhatt is reportedly being lined-up to feature in a biopic of renowned journalist, Barkha Dutt, helmed by Hansal Mehta.

Earlier, Dutt had expressed her desire to see Bhatt play her on screen. She told PinkVilla at the time, “I am not saying this because she just has a film out but I am saying this because I really think she’s the most talented actor is Alia Bhatt. I mean there’s no question…the range, the sheer range, the ease with which she plays everything.”

She added, “I think there’s a little bit of a caricature of the journalists in movies. I think the Lakshya character did try, but in the end, it became some love story, so, I didn’t really recognize myself. I really think there’s a good movie to be made about journalists, about journalism and a journalist.”
