Alia Bhatt is “disappointed” with the debacle of “Shaandaar”, but the actress doesn’t believe in brooding over the past. Embracing the failure, Alia says she is trying to “move on”.
The daughter of popular filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, who stepped into the world of showbiz with the 2012 film “Student of the Year”, has scaled new heights of success with each of her films — be it “Highway” or “2 States”.
Vikas Bahl’s “Shaandaar” is her first movie which has failed to work.
When asked to comment on the cold response that “Shaandaar” has generated, Alia said: “Of course, there is disappointment. It’s a first for me. I’ll take this in my stride and move on.”
The actress shared her views at the opening ceremony of the 17th Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival on Thursday.
“Shaandaar”, which marked Shahid Kapoor’s first film after his marriage, tried to be a fantasy film with a backdrop of an ostentatious Indian wedding. Released on October 22, it also features Sanah Kapoor, Sushma Seth and Pankaj Kapur.
Meanwhile, Alia has a lot to look forward to. She has some big films like “Udta Punjab”, “Kapoor And Sons” and “Shuddhi” in her kitty.
