Bollywood actor Akshara Haasan, who will be seen in upcoming film, Laali Ki Shaadi Mein Laddoo Deewana, says Alia Bhatt challenges her as an actress.

Laali Ki Shaadi Mein Laddoo Deewana also stars actors Kavitta Verma, Viviaan Shaah and Gurmeet Choudhary.

“I remember watching her since her first movie Student Of The Year (2012). I love the way she has grown up as an actor. I really respect her for that. It’s beautiful to watch her on-screen,” she said at the press conference of the film on Monday.

“She is natural and acts with ease. Kudos for what she has achieved for herself,” added the actor who is Kamal Haasan and Sarika’s daughter.

On being asked about any competition between them, she said, “We always face competition even when we are in high school. Fortunately, when I met her, I felt she is a wonderful person... Alia challenges me and inspires me as an actress. If she can do, I would like to do my best as well.”

Akshara, 25, who made her Bollywood debut with Shamitabh, spoke about her delay in signing the next project, “I guess I wasn’t fit for the roles I was offered. I found a lot of soul and emotion in this role. The story is very realistic.”

Akshara plays a strong-headed modern girl from Vadodara in the film, which revolves around a royal marriage and quirky characters hilariously trapped in their own tragedies.
