Alia Bhatt will be finishing off a decade of her career, and has worked with leading talents of Bollywood industry. She has worked with celebrities like Shah Rukh Khan and Sanjay Dutt in movies like Dear Zindagi and Sadak 2, respectively. Currently the actress is all set to share the screen space with Ajay Devgan in herupcoming film Gangubai Kathiawadi. In a conversation with Siddharth Kannan, Alia spoke about the longevity of these actors in cinema. She said the only reason is their “hard work, consistency and connection with the audience” that has worked in their favor.
Alia Bhatt calls Bollywood ‘the most brutal industry’, explains how superstars like Shah Rukh Khan and Ajay Devgn survived for over 30 years
“There are too many factors. Main thing is that you put your life and soul into working, and that’s the only reason you’ll survive,” Alia told, adding that the film industry is the “most brutal industry.” And until you won’t give your 100% to it, “You won’t survive more than six months or a year.” She also said that be it Ajay or Shah Rukh, they do not come with the baggage of being a superstar to the set. They come, they do their job and go home, and return the next day to repeat the same. “When I see superstars, they are very normal, not really creating a big fuss or whatever. They are stars for the audience but at the end of the day, when they come on the sets, they are working,” she continued.
When asked about her experience working with Ajay, Alia said while she didn’t get to share much of the screen time with the actor, she is sure she could be friends with him. “He doesn’t treat me like a junior. He treats me normally; asks me questions, hears me out. Whenever we did hang out or speak on sets, we were talking normally. I don’t know how to explain, but there was no barrier,” Alia said, adding that her bond with Shah Rukh Khan is “really different.”
Currently, Alia is looking ahead for the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi. The film marks her first project with SLB.
