Alia Bhatt


Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt desires to portray Hollywood actress Jennifer Lawrence’s character in the movie Silver Linings Playbook, as she believes it to be a wonderful role. In an audio show Take 2 with Anupama and Rajeev on Saavn, Alia Bhatt spoke about Hollywood and the opportunities under its wing.

“It’s funny that you mentioned Jennifer Lawrence, but I love her and I relate a lot to her for some reason. I feel like we are pretty similar and she is a fabulous actress as well. But the only difference is which is what I wish, I think it’s changing here and I feel like we are moving in a space where content is really becoming the focus of all our attention,” Alia said.

“At least out there, there is a lot of respect and love given to writers and just writing which we are still waking up to over here so that’s the only thing I would want maybe that just more respect for the writers so they feel motivated because eventually it’s all in the writing. And of course the directing but eventually that’s your raw material. So better opportunities I don’t know but yes definitely I’ve seen characters like I would’ve loved to play Jennifer Lawrence’s character in the Silver Linings Playbook and I was like that’s such a brilliant character to play but maybe someday, hopefully,” Alia added.

Take 2 with Anupama and Rajeev is a show which includes conversations about movie releases, trends in the film industry and tête-à-tête with different actors, producers and directors from Bollywood. The audio show will be aired on every Tuesday comprising of 12 episodes spanning for 20 minutes.
