Alia Bhatt on paving her way to Hollywood
In a candid interview with Marie Claire, Alia Bhatt shared her candid thoughts on her Hollywood debut in Heart of Stone and how it’s about constantly challenging yourself rather than just doing an international film: “I’m trying to explore as many arenas as Possible. It’s not just checking Hollywood off my bucket list. It’s not just making any old Hollywood movie or just making any content that comes from anywhere. It’s about constantly challenging myself and putting myself in rooms that are challenging and roles that are uncomfortable.”
Bhatt further explained her stance, explaining, “I think working in a new industry always does. I would also make my first Japanese film tomorrow if I could speak the language. The intention is to constantly push myself so that I don’t get bored and stagnate.”

Alia Bhatt gives sage advice to young women
Alia Bhatt also shared some wise advice for young women during an interview with Marie Claire. According to Alia, you need to be “healthy on the inside” rather than obsessing over how you look on the surface. Bhatt believes that “it’s not about every little patch of skin on your body. You can’t squeeze it and think: This is a problem. This is a problem.” Alia, while talking about herself, admitted that she has and has had her days. Furthermore, the Udta Punjab star opined that if you pick on yourself first, it’s like inviting everyone else’s negative thoughts to your body. Instead, if you yourself are “armed with confidence” along with “a certain level of appreciation for how you look and who you are, then nothing in the world will bother you…especially in the world of Instagram and TikTok and all those filters.”
“Feel good on the inside. Stay active, eat good food. Eat crap if you want too. Because if that’s something you want to do on a particular day, please go ahead and do it. You have one life, so just enjoy it , as much as possible,” Alia Bhatt concluded and we couldn’t agree more with the gorgeous actress!
