I can never be a director: Alia Bhatt

Alia Bhatt has showcased her acting prowess and singing skills as well as her fashionable side, but the actress says she will never wear the director’s hat for any project.

The daughter of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and yesteryear actress Soni Razdan added that she can plunge into the filmmaking business as a producer, but never as a director.

“Maybe I can produce (films) one day, but I don’t think I can ever be a director because being a director takes a lot. I don’t think I have that capability,” Alia told IANS over phone from Mumbai.

Since her debut project “Student of the Year” in 2012, she has delivered laudable performances in films like “Highway”, “2 States”, “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania”, “Kapoor and Sons” and “Udta Punjab”. Her only setback was last year’s “Shaandaar”.

Asked if she takes any guidance from her family, she said: “While making the film no advice comes from my parents. All advice comes from my director.”

The actress will next be seen in director Gauri Shinde’s upcoming “Dear Zindagi” alongside superstar Shah Rukh Khan. The film will release on November 25.
