Alia Bhatt, who made her Bollywood debut as the stylish girl Shanaya from the movie Student Of The Year, will now be seen in a hatke, de-glam role in her next film Highway; opposite Randeep Hooda.
Talking about her look in the film, she says “People were not really expecting something like this, and I get where they’re coming from, because my first movie was so different from this. But I am happy that the response has been positive. These days it is very important for the first trailer to leave a mark on the audience, and the promo has managed to do just that.”
“I knew I could pull off this de-glam look. I didn’t have to worry about it. I enjoy dressing up, but not as much as Shanaya from SOTY. I am more tomboyish, more like Veera from Highway. And with this movie, it’s not that I am trying to prove a point, I got the opportunity so I took it up. I genuinely enjoyed all the sleeping below trees, lying down on grass and eating at the dhabas. During the shooting, I was watching my weight so I couldn’t eat as much I would have wanted to, but it was fun. I would love to go back and do that again. I’ll tell Imtiaz to take me again,” added the cute actress.
Meanwhile, check out the trailer folks!
