“I’m a huge Shahid Kapoor fan” – Alia on Vikas’ Shandaar

Alia Bhatt is currently one of the most sought-after actresses. She admits there is plenty on the plate. But she isn’t allowed to speak about them all as yet. Alia does admit to having signed Vikas Bahl’s next. “Yes, I’m doing Shaandar with Vikas. I am very excited I loved his Queen. And I am really looking forward to what he does in the film with me.”

Alia’s co-star in Shaandar is Shahid Kapoor, and Alia is thrilled to bits. “I’m a huge Shahid Kapoor fan. I must have been 11 years old when I went to see Shahid in Ishq Vishq at Gaiety-Galaxy. I’ve been a fan since then. He is a fabulous actor and from what I hear, a very supportive co-star.”

Shahid is a generation removed from most of the co-stars Alia has worked with so far. Gently she corrects me, “You forget I’ve done Highway with Randeep Hooda. But yes, that apart, I’ve so far worked with actors my own age. So there was a natural comfort level with them. But it’s not like Shahid is any different from Varun Dhawan, Arjun Kapoor or Sidharth Malhotra. He is a very chilled-out guy. He has been around for so many years. I am sure he’s a thorough professional. And I am really looking forward to working with him.”

Shandaar is to be shot in an undisclosed part of England later this year. Vikas Bahl’s last film the much-lauded Queen had been shot in Paris, one of Alia’s favourite cities where she got a chance to holiday recently. I am very excited about this film. It’s something I haven’t done so far. I want to work with every major actor.”
