Mahesh Bhatt might be one of the most influential personalities in Bollywood but his daughter Alia Bhatt refuses to accept any help from him.
19 year old Alia, who is all set to make her Bollywood debut with ‘Student of the Year’, said that she wanted to learn from her mistakes and doesn’t want her father to interfere in her career.
“Every now and then he (Mahesh) tells me where he feels the need but I like to be on my own and I want to learn from my mistakes,” said Alia Bhatt to PTI.
The young actress said that she was both nervous and excited about her Bollywood debut.
“I am just 19; I finished school and just walked into movies. So I am really scared and nervous as to how it will turn out to be. I didn't plan this, it just came along and I am enjoying every bit of it,” she said.
In the movie Alia plays a rich girl Shanaya Singhania, who comes from a very affluent family.
“Shanaya loves her clothes, bags, shoes and she is very brand conscious. She also comes from a dysfunctional family and feels lonely and is looking for that one person who can love her unconditionally,” Alia concluded.
‘Student of the Year’ is directed by Karan Johar. Along with Alia Bhatt the movie also stars debutants Siddharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan (son of David Dhawan).
The movie ‘Student of the Year’ is all set to hit screens on October 19.
