Alia Bhatt who had delivered a brilliant performance in Udta Punjab doesn’t feel a sense of fulfilment yet in her career
Actress Alia Bhatt, who played the role of a Bihari migrant in Udta Punjab, said the film was not made with the intention of winning a National award. When asked how she felt on the film not getting recognition at the National awards, Alia said she did not feel bad, as the film had already been well received by the audience. Udta Punjab also had Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor and Diljit Dosanjh were in key roles. I get bored by constantly dancing to my own songs. Alia, who made her acting debut with Karan Johar’s Student of the Year, has delivered great performances in films like Highway, 2 States, Udta Punjab, Dear Zindagi, doesn’t feel a sense of fulfilment yet in her career. Alia says there is still a lot for her to achieve. So, the people who have won, have put in more efforts and have been rewarded, so you shouldn’t feel spiteful to somebody’s else’s win. It’s not that National awards are not prestigious, but it doesn’t take away the fact whatever the film has achieved. An award is given when your efforts are rewarded. “We did not make a film for that purpose, so it’s ok. “When the film released, it got that appreciation and recognition from the people. This video is making us feel hungry too
“I have not decided yet about my performance. She was speaking on the sidelines of International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards press meet of the voting weekend. There is no fulfilment, but there is gratitude for the opportunities that I have got.”
Talking about the IIFA awards ceremony, she said, “It’s been five years and I have not been to IIFA once. Abhishek Chaubey’s Udta Punjab, which dealt with the issue of substance abuse in Punjab, failed to win an award in the 64th National Film Awards. I try to be different so maybe I will perform on a mix of my songs and other songs,” she said.
