Alia Bhatt talks about her enviable line-up of 2019

In her six-year-long career, Alia Bhatt has displayed a tigress-like hunger and ferocity for quality films and remarkable performances.

Talking about the buzz around 'Raazi', Alia said, “I am very happy. It was sort of a risky/ different/important decision of my life. Also, I went on an extremely emotional journey with Raazi. So, when it’s counted amongst the most loved films of the year, or one of the films that kicked off a change of some kind, and a ‘smaller’ film that did big numbers, I feel thrilled. It was a huge team effort and we all worked extremely hard on it. There is no better feeling than people coming up with that kind of appreciation. Also, as an actor, it makes you believe in your choices. Honestly, I always had a gut feeling that Raazi could be one of those films, which does big numbers, but I didn’t want to say it out aloud. But when it actually happened, it gave me a lot of confidence, and I was content about my decision to do the film."

On being asked if 2019 will be an important year of her career, the actress answered, “Yes, it surely is. It’s the first time that I am doing many things. It’s the first time I’ve worked with Zoya Akhtar, which is a big deal for me. Also, it’s the first time that I’ve done a film like Kalank, which is a period epic drama through which I am entering this world of dance, costumes and layered acting which I have never tapped into before. It’s a very different world. Then, Brahmastra is a supernatural world. It may be set in the present but the world is very new. So, I will have a lot of firsts in 2019, as there are no templates for any of my films. For that reason, I’ve already started to get nervous. All my films are like ‘good difficult’ but it has to turn out well at the end of the day.”
