Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt always promotes new talent. But when it comes to working with his own daughter Alia Bhatt, he has his reservations. He calls his daughter a star. When asked if he will ever work with his daughter, the 64 years old director who is known for making serious and meaningful films including Arth, Saraansh, Naam and Daddy said, “No. She is a star in her own world and I don’t work with stars.”
Mahesh Bhatt has contributed a lot to the industry and has given chances to many newcomers who afterwards became famous names in the industry. One such name is Anupam Kher who rose to fame after his performance in ‘Saraansh’.
Alia has become a youth icon because of her successful roles. Be it a student role in her debut film Student of The Year or a kidnapped rich girl in Highway, an IIM atudent in 2 States or awoul-be-bride in Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania, she has always done justice to her roles.
Mahesh Bhatt said, “She’s got what we call the ‘misfortune of success’ because I was fortunate enough to be unsuccessful when I started and then I was groomed in the pain. She had the privilege to get a fantastic take-off in the industry and that too with diverse films. But it’s still the beginning. She has to do a lot to keep on fulfilling the unreasonable demands that audiences make because no one spares anyone in their failure. Remember this nation didn’t even forgive Sachin Tendulkar who had spectacular take-off and when he leaned down, he had to face lot of criticism. This is public place, they worship success, but they hate failures.”
