Alia Bhatt is doing everything possible to make sure she survives long enough in the industry. The actress who will be seen as a Tamilian girl in 2 states, is learning Tamil for the film and is also learning the house hold culture of Tamilians.
The 19 year old is leaving no stone un-turned to fit the bill as an Iyengar girl for the film, which is based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel “2 states: The Story Of My Marriage”. The story of the film revolves around a Punjabi boy who falls in love with a Tamilian girl and the cultural and religion clashes between the two families.
A source close to Alia Bhatt said “She is learning the Tamil culture and tradition. She has also hired a special Tamilian teacher who will help her to adapt the south Indian culture.”
Alia is the Veteran filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt’s daughter and made her debut this year in Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year. She was spotted in many South Indian localities to fit into the skin of her character.
In “2 States”, she will feature opposite Ishaqzaade actor Arjun Kapoor. They even got together for a photo shoot recently, where Alia wore some typical south Indian saris – a contrast to her modern avatar in “Student Of The Year”.
“2 States” is directed Abhishek Verman and co-produced by Karan Johar and Sajid Nadiadwala.
