Alia Bhatt: I’ve confidence issues sometimes; I’m not always calm

Alia Bhatt, who made her Bollywood debut with Karan Johar’s Student of the Year has come a long way and proved her versatility by trying her hands on varied genres.
However, the 25-year-old actor still faces confidence issues sometimes. She told Filmfare, “If I have issues and doubts, I just start talking about it because a 20-something shouldn’t believe she’s a poster girl of pure positivity and constant joy. That’s something I don’t want to put out there. I’m not a negative person. But I’ve a lot of doubts. I’ve confidence issues sometimes. And I’m not always smiling. I’m not always calm. I get stressed out. I get scared.”
On the work front, Alia is all set to enthrall us with Meghna Gulzar’s Raazi. The trailer of the film released recently and has received good reviews. Alia plays the role of Sehmat in the much-awaited film.
Talking about her role in Raazi, Alia had told TOI, “The guilt that Sehmat feels as a wife was the toughest to portray. There were these points in the script where Meghna wrote, ‘Sehmat gives a knowing look’. I used to wonder what it means. We used to giggle about it, but when she explained it to me, I realised what she meant. Sehmat is around so many people, and she’s seeing and hearing so many things. She cleverly camouflages her true feelings with fake reactions that will go well with the people around her at that point. I wondered how I would give ‘that look’. Portraying a spy in the garb of a wife was difficult.”
Also starring Vicky Kaushal, the movie will hit the screens on May 11, 2018.
