Alia is currently busy promoting her forthcoming entertainer Badrinath Ki Dulhania and said that, like her previous work doing this film was also a challenge for her.
“Every film that I pick up is a sort of challenge for me. ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ was challenging because it is (set) in a different place altogether. I am playing a girl from Kota. She is a small-town girl and very different from other characters that I have played. Through such films, you have to make the audience smile and cry at the same time–that itself is a challenge,’ she said.

With awards you are rewarded for just your efforts. I don’t think of it as the be-all and end-all. I don’t work for awards, but the year that you get them, It’s just that you feel very grateful and you feel very glad that your efforts have been recognised.
‘There’s nothing else to feel about it. You shouldn’t take it too seriously and if you don’t get it, that doesn’t mean that your career is over.’ added the daughter of Veteran filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and Soni Razdan.
