Alia Bhatt has risen to the top with some of Bollywood’s best films in recent times, and she plans to keep the momentum going by being a part of the industry’s most sought after projects.
Bhatt, who has earned the luxury of choosing from the best, has signed eight films with Bollywood’s top directors, “After signing ‘Inshallah’ with Salman Khan, she is the ‘thing’ now. How many actresses have a line-up of films similar to what Alia has? She is working with makers she wants to work with and on scripts that she wants to do. Forget actresses, barring two or three stars like Akshay (Kumar) and Ajay Devgn among others, no one has a line up of films as she has. While she has Abhishek Varman’s ‘Kalank’ and Ayan Mukherji’s ‘Brahmastra’ scheduled to release this year. She will next be shooting for Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’ followed by Karan Johar’s ‘Takht’, Mahesh Bhatt’s ‘Sadak 2’, Neeraj Ghaywan’s next on the Arunima Sinha story besides her commitment to Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari for her next,” a source told Deccan Chronicle.
Bhatt’s stellar track record at the box office has guaranteed that her projects will be greenlighted, “Now, we do not have the same kind of belief even in a Salman Khan or a Shah Rukh Khan project. But, an Alia film is always a yes, also because we trust her instincts,” says an executive from a film corporate.
Her latest release ‘Kalank’ will release on 17th April, followed by ‘Brahmastra’, which is slated for 20th December.
