Playing intense characters that require months of preparation appears to have exhausted Alia Bhatt. The actress, currently shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi, plans to take some time off to work on her character in Karan Johar’s Mughal era epic Takht before that film goes into production in March.
But sources close to the actress say she wants a breather now. Alia is reportedly tired from learning accents, getting into the head of complex women and acquiring skills to play complex parts. She’s also tired from the physical demands of Brahmastra, a film that is likely to take significantly longer to complete than anyone imagined. “She just wants to play a role that is easy and breezy.” Previously announced projects with Masaan director Neeraj Ghaywan (in which she was to play an amputee mountaineer) and Panga helmer Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari (for which she was required to learn sign language) appear to have been put on hold for now; talk is that Alia is seriously considering an offer to star in—wait for it—the next instalment in Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal franchise.
Most significantly, the year will culminate in marriage. Yes, remember you read it here first: Alia and Ranbir Kapoor are set to tie the knot in December this year, not long after the release of Brahmastra on the 4th of that month. Preparations are already underway; their extended families have been asked to mark off those dates to join in the celebrations.
The way the whole movie will now be promoted on basis of their wedding I wanna feel bad for Ayan but it was probably his idea if we go by that cringey release date annoucement.
Anyway, Alia there's still time. Get out while you can gurl! Fck that last name!
