Alia Bhatt to play an aspiring hockey player from Bihar in Udta Punjab?

Though it has been revealed that Abhishek Chaubey's upcoming directorial Udta Punjab will be based on the drug abuse issue, the details of the film are being kept under wraps. Amidst several rumours, we hear that Alia Bhatt will be seen playing the role of an aspiring hockey player from Bihar.


It is being said that Alia Bhatt will be seen in a complete different avatar, so much so that, the makers have gone to the extent of changing her skin colour to a few shades darker along with an orange tinge given to her hair. The actress will apparently be speaking Bhojpuri since her character hails from Bihar and it has been learnt that the actress has even learnt the language for the same. Though the costume designer of the film Payal Saluja did mention that the makers have experimented with Alia's skin texture, she hasn't divulged any further details on the same. It seems that the makers are taking special care to keep the look of Alia Bhatt in Udta Punjab a secret.


Alia Bhatt's character will be portrayed as a migrant in Punjab who though earns minimal income, aspires to make it big in the world of hockey. Further, we also hear that the actress' character falls prey to drug addiction due to poverty and desperation. Alia Bhatt shot for the film in varied places of Punjab like Tarn Taran and Amritsar.


Besides her, Udta Punjab also stars Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh. The film is slated to release June 17.
