Bollywood actor Alia Bhatt is on a roll thanks to the box office success and high praise that she is getting for Meghan Gulzar’s Raazi. But there is one feather in her cap that has gone by mostly unnoticed – Alia has been working with female directors on an almost back-to-back basis. While Meghna directed her in Raazi, the actor recently wrapped up her work on Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy. And now, Alia confirms that she is set to work with Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari.

Alia says, “I am definitely going to do a film with Ashwiny, because she is a fabulous director. Although it [the film] is sort of confirmed, I am not saying it myself, because there will be an official announcement soon. They [Ashwiny and the film’s makers] have brought an extremely fun concept to me. I am really excited, as that’s going to be my breakaway film from all the serious ones [that I am doing]. Ab main ek light-hearted film karne waali hoon.”

At 25, Alia is one of the most successful and busiest actors in Bollywood. Ask her if she is satisfied in life, and Alia says, “Satisfaction comes from things that you do, right? So, I am satisfied with a lot of things that I am doing. I work very hard, and that makes me angry, irritated, tired and even sleep-deprived, but it still gives me satisfaction. Plus, I am very happy and content with the kind of people I am working with.”

The Badrinath Ki Dulhania (2017) actor says she is “leading a very colourful life”. She adds, “My life is a mixture of greys, blacks, blues and pinks. So, right now, I am covering all the spectrums of colour. But yes, some days are grey, while others are yellow, and that’s the way life is. But I am really happy with the stuff that I am doing.”
