Alia Bhatt is currently enjoying the success of her last film Badrinath Ki Dulhania co-starring Varun Dhawan. The 24-year-old actress, who has sung six of her film songs like- Samjhawan and Ikk Kudi, told news agency PTI that she wouldn't want to be known just as an actor. She said: "I don't want to be known as an actor. I have told this to my mother many times that I need to have layers to my personality. Whether it is producing something on TV, singing, social work or anything. So, I always wanted to have something which is not about me but about others."
Alia Bhatt's film Badrinath Ki Dulhania, which released in theatres on March 10, has collected over Rs 91 crore. A few reports suggested that the Highway actress was planning to take a six-month break. However, refuting the reports, Alia told PTI: "I am not going on a big holiday or break. I am going away for eight-ten days and that's ok... So, I will learn things that I don't get time to do like sing, dance, cook and spend time with my cat."
The Shaandaar actress in collaboration with Moon Frog is launched a game titled 'Alia Bhatt: Star Life'. It is a first of its kind simulation experiential game made for all fashion and Bollywood lovers. "I can't play games that frustrate me. I need the game to calm me down. I have played farmville and candy crush. I have a hectic life so I want to play games to relax," Alia told PTI.
She added: "I am a competitive person and when I am competing with my father, we both make sure we win."
Alia Bhatt will next be seen in Ayan Mukerji's Dragon co-starring Ranbir Kapoor. She will also be seen in Zoya Akhtar's next film titled Gully Boy along with Ranveer Singh.
