Tuesday was an interesting day for Bollywood actor Alia Bhatt who reached 30 million followers on Instagram and also won an award for her performance in Meghna Gulzar’s Raazi. While she shared a thank you note for her fans on the social media platform, her acceptance speech at Reel Awards 2018 was quite an impressive one.
Comparing the experience of working on a film and a vacation, Alia said she must ‘lose the weight’ once the vacation is over. “The process of holiday gets paid off with the weight and if you have to go back being healthy, you have to lose it. I have realised that for me it is very important post the awards to lose the ‘weight’ and the very fact that I won an award so that I can go back to ground zero and hope to be back here and then lose it again.”
Alia’s speech was lauded by Boman Irani who gave her the award. “What a humble acceptance speech for an outstanding performance, dearest Alia. Couldn’t be prouder to hand over the Best Actor Female Award for Raazi to you! The sweetest too,” he said.
