Sharmila PRAISES Alia; calls her the game-changer in the 21st century

Alia Bhatt is one phenomenal actress on the block right now. She is every director's muse with the kind of hard work and determination she brings on the table. By now all of us have been smitten by her acting skills and so is veteran actress Sharmila Tagore.

Being impressed by Alia Bhatt, Sharmila has penned a column in the Outlook magazine and called Bhatt the game-changer in the 21st century. In her column, Sharmila Tagore emphasised on the fact that how a big Bollywood break came easily to Alia as she is a star kid but later her hard work and choices of films proved her true worth in the industry.

"If there's one aspect of Alia I wish we could all emulate, it's her ability to laugh at herself. It's what makes her truly special and adds to her appeal as an everywoman", Sharmila wrote.


When Outlook Magazine wanted Sharmila to name one actress who she can call the game-changer, the veteran actress said, "I feel one actress cannot be a game-changer on her own; changing this deeply entrenched image of the heroine cannot be a solo enterprise.

But since the media's brief should be followed, without taking anything away from all the others, I vote for Alia Bhatt. And not only because Raazi happened recently. Though it needs to be said: when was the last time we had a film made by a woman, without a male star, without a chartbusting item number and with a narrative that goes against the grain and against the national sentiment of the time, grossing over Rs 100 crore and getting the critical appreciation that Raazi has had?".


"Though Alia had a perfect launch by Karan Johar in 2012, the 25-year-old commands a very different space today. She might have had an easy start, but that was just the first of many opportunities that she seized to showcase her remarkable talent. Today, she has emerged as a wonderful self-assured gem. Her journey is commendable as her success is based on her willingness to take risks and deal with subjects that are topical and speak simultaneously to different generations", she added.

"As long as Alia Bhatt remains fearless, resists being stereotyped, doesn't succumb to the lure of the 'safe harbour' and continues to opt for the 'open sea'; as long as she knows how to handle box-office failures, of which she will no doubt have her share, and more importantly, the heady feeling of stardom that her recent success will have given her, here's a young actress who, I believe, has the potential to be a game-changer, who can challenge the secondary image of the woman in Hindi cinemanot on her own perhaps but together, with like-minded fellow actors", Sharmila Tagore concluded.
