Even though Alia Bhatt is currently busy promoting her next, Kapoor & Sons, the film isn’t the only thing on her mind. The actor is planning to move out of her parents’ (film-maker Mahesh Bhatt and actor Soni Razdan) house soon.
“It was meant to happen on my birthday (March 15), but I have been a bad mother to my house. I haven’t had enough time to decide on the interiors. I am looking at moving into the new house, maybe, after a month and a half,” says Alia.
The actor’s new apartment is in Juhu, close to her parents’ house. “It is just 10 steps away from my family home,” says the 23-year-old, adding that she decided to move out because she wanted to give her parents some space.
“Sometimes, I want to do narrations, readings and fittings at my house. But, I can’t keep eating into my parents’ space,” she says. The actor adds that she has been “literally living out of boxes” for a while now. “I have a nice room, but I have too much stuff. My mum has got an extra closet made outside my room, but it’s still not enough. I am moving out only due to lack of space,” she says.
Recently, Alia said in an interview that she would like to have a house in Dubai. Ask her about that, and she says, “I said that randomly, when I was asked if I want to buy a home there. So, I said that Dubai is the greatest holiday spot, since it’s so close, yet a bit far.”

On the work front, Alia has teamed up with her Student Of The Year (SOTY; 2012) co-star Sidharth Malhotra in her next. “Sid has become more comfortable in front of the camera. During SOTY, I was always energetic and chirpy, but he used to be quiet and didn’t talk much. But he has changed. Plus, he has grown phenomenally as an actor,” she says.
