Bollywood babe Alia Bhatt's
third film '2 states'
is going to release on 18 April. In this movie, Alia was asked to play a role of South Indian girl and she did it very well.
Producer Sajid Nadiadwala says, 'Alia has played the first non-caricatural South Indian character in our film. Normally when we show South Indians in our films they have thick accent, and if it's a woman from the South she will have gajra in her hair and will go 'Aiyo' every five minutes. Alia does none of that.'
Alia admits it was difficult to not lapse into caricature while doing a South Indian character. 'I was not allowed to be culture-specific in 2 States in my body-language or my accent. Yes, I am a Tamilian in 2 States. But I don't make a show of my regional roots. It is tough because when you are not resorting to speech and behavioral props, you have no handy tools to give personality to your character.'
Alia Bhatt, plays Ananya Swaminathan role in the film '2 States' and is directed by Abhishek Varman
,and stars Arjun Kapoor
and Alia Bhatt in lead roles. Arjun plays the character of Krish Malhotra. The movie is a Karan Johar
and Sajid Nadiadwala
production. The movie is based on the novel of Chetan Bhagat's 2 states.
On the last day of shooting Alia got emotional and tweets, 'It's been beautiful and exciting. Will miss playing the Ananya Swaminathan. Too emotional today!
