Alia Bhatt is only five years old in the industry and has already consolidated her position as one of the most dependable actors. However, if one observes her films, she has never been a part of a multi-starrer project, it’s always her character that’s the be all and the end all. When asked about the same in one of the interviews, she said, “I’ve never been offered such a movie. I haven’t rejected a film because it was a two-heroine outing. Instead, I want to do something which has only women. I think we will have amazing camaraderie and it will be a fun film.”
She continued and stated, “Katrina Kaif is one of my closest friends, so we keep talking about doing a film. It’s the same with Deepika Padukone. It will be amazing to act in a movie with such powerful women. I’ve made a pact with Kat and DP that we will do films together.”
When asked about the changing roles of women in Hindi cinema today, she said, “It has become progressive for actresses today. But, there’s still a long way to go. The best thing is that now, they are standing by each other. For instance, imagine Dil Chahta Hai being remade with three girls today. It would be wonderful. I’m game for a good chick flick.”
We cannot agree more to what Alia said, especially when we don’t have enough movies in India highlighting the bond among female friends. We had the highly underrated Angry Indian Goddesses in 2015 and now Veere Di Wedding this year. Hope we can have more such films in the future.
