You’ve known Alia Bhatt as the cute bubbly actor from Student of the Year (2012), who has apparently acted all grown-up in Imtiaz Ali’s soon-to-be-released Highway. And now we hear that besides acting in the film, the 20-year-old has also sung a lullaby, Sooh Saha, in it.

Yes, Alia Bhatt  can sing as well! In a candid conversation with us on Friday evening, Alia shared, "I think Imtiaz heard me humming a tune on the sets and he might have discussed this with (AR) Rahman sir."

And, the outcome of this discussion was a song for Alia. “It’s a soft song and I like soft, mellow numbers. Probably that’s why I sang the song. But, I was really nervous,” she said, adding, “We did two sessions at Rahman sir’s studio and every time I used to be like, Oh My God, I am at Rahman sir’s studio and I don’t know what I am doing. But he was very patient with me and I am ­really thankful to him for that,” she added.

Alia, however, also says that it is only a one-time thing, and she is not looking to pursue singing professionally, unlike actor Priyanka Chopra who has taken singing seriously. “I am a bathroom ­singer to be honest. I am not looking to sing professionally or anything,” she said. 

Alia speaks...
