Actress Alia Bhatt comes from a family of actors and filmmakers, but with her versatility and choice of films like "Highway", "Udta Punjab" and "Dear Zindagi", she has made her own mark in Bollywood. She feels people are unnecessarily talking "too much" about the existence of nepotism in the industry.
"We are talking too much about it. We need to stop," the actress, who recently turned 24, told IANS on phone when asked about her views on the nepotism debate.
Alia, who was launched in the Hindi film industry by Karan with "Student of The Year", has been charged many a time with getting an easy entry into Bollywood because of her father Mahesh Bhatt.
However, the actress let her work talk with her talent in her second film "Highway". She again impressed many by taking the attention away from Shah Rukh Khan in Gauri Shinde's "Dear Zindagi", and in "Udta Punjab", she got a thumbs up for portraying a Bihari girl with ease.
Asked about what makes her choose roles as varied as the ones in "Student Of The Year" and the very recent "Badrinath Ki Dulhania", Alia said: "Like the way I don't dress up for other people, in a similar way, I do different films for myself and not for someone else. I want to do different films for myself and not because 'log aise kar rahey hai' (people are doing so).
"That's the byproduct of it."
Her five-year journey in the film industry has made her more responsible.
"I think the more years you spend in the industry, the more you get experience. I don't know how I have changed as an actor, but yes, I have learnt a lot of the technical things. I am growing up in the public eye, so there will be changes. But it's not like I really sat down and noticed things that have changed.
"I think I have become more responsible now because now I also live by myself. I am satisfied with my work and not anything else," Alia told IANS, and added that she doesn't miss anything in her life.
"This is what I always wanted to do so I enjoy doing this," added the actress, who is in the capital to walk the ramp at Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW) Autumn-Winter 2017.
