The Bollywood young star Alia Bhatt, who has got astounding triumph since her start of her career in the industry, had the opportunity to work with her role model Kareena Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor in imminent film Udta Punjab.

The gorgeous shared in an interview that she got to spend much time with Bebo on set than her Shaandaar co-star Shahid.

Alia revealed that “I don’t have any scenes with Kareena in the movie. Because it’s about four different lives, all characters don’t cross paths. But I did get to spend time with her on set since Kareena and Diljeet (Dosanjh) had already started shooting, I joined later and then Shahid came in. I went a few days earlier because I had to do some research in Punjab so I used to go sit on set with her. We used to chat and we were just getting to know each other,”

Though, her experience this time with Shahid was not the similar as it was when they were shooting for Shaandaar.

She continued that “With Shahid, it was lovely. We had a good time while shooting Shaandaar, but this time, we were busy in our own thing. It’s a very different and engaging film. We shot together for around four to five days. We were both in different zones. We didn’t even talk to each other on set,”

Alia Bhatt is performing the character of a drug addict in the movie and was totally novel to her role.

She added about it “It was unlike anything I have played before or anything that I can relate to. That was the challenge. This character was completely new and alien and a completely new space for me,”

Abhishek Chaubey, the director of the film, helped her to put herself into the shoes of the character.

Ali further continued that “There was no personality or character reference that I got. With the help of the script and by talking to director Abhishek Chaubey, asking him questions like, what she is going through? What does she feel? What is she like? What are her natural instincts? I created an imaginary person and it was literally me being that imaginary person,”

The film is scheduled to release on 17th June this year.
