Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan are currently on a roll, busy promoting their upcoming flick Badrinath ki Dulhania. Their duo who made their Bollywood debut together have been able to carve a niche for themselves since then.

With powerful performances in movies like Highway, Udta Punjab and Dear Zindagi among others, Alia has been experimental with her choices of roles. However, did you know that Alia wants to be a comedy actress some day?
Alia, in an interview to a leading daily, revealed that she wants to be a comedy actress one day while speaking about the qualities she has learned from Varun. "He (Varun) is so good at comedy, I observe him when he's doing his scenes. One day, I want to be a comedy actress," she said. 

She further added, "My aspirations to become an actress came from watching Govinda and Karisma Kapoor. They were a lethal combination. Even Kareena Kapoor Khan, Juhi Chawla, Madhuri Dixit and Sridevi. They can all do comedy effortlessly. It's brilliant and not easy. It's in fact the toughest kind of acting to do. I am a funny person and I want that to come out on screen. I want people to laugh at me... sorry...with me." Well, we hope to see you in a comic role soon, Alia.

During the interview she also asserted that the one thing she learnt from Varun, while they working together, is how to push yourself to work better all the time. While Varun said that it is while working with Alia that he has learnt the most about the craft.

Directed by  Shashank Khaitan, Badrinath ki Dulhania is set to hit the screens on March 10

This Day That Year


Competition to Sonam, who is the funniest actress currently.

Sridevi & Juhi Chawla are the only actresses that mastered comedy. Rest comedy is greek to them

Run Varun run, she aspired to be like Pari and see what happened,she is doing Paris roles now ouch, the roles reversed , Pari is doing mediocre roles and Alia is getting all meaty ones hehe...

Sridevi is outstanding. Alia is versatile so maybe she will be good, please dont hate for no reason.

We already do that alia. That is something you don't need to work on amd you won't need kjo for that just be yourself

omg i had the same reaction when i read this. 'people already laugh at her'

Sridevi is a master at comedy. Mr India was flawless

Even if she is half as good as Sridevi in comedy she will be just fine.

Then don't try hard babe. just be who you are and add a pinch of your intellectual self. That would be a great recipe for comedy. I m sure you will be unstoppable in that genre too. ;-)

Varun good at comedy?? and when did madhuri attempt comedy?? kareena overacts, she thinks being loud is funny... so not cool.. Sridevi, Juhi, Ila Arun. Archana Puran Singh are fantastic at comedy. Amongst male actors, it is Arshad Warsi, Govinda, Sharman joshi to name a few.... Irfan Khan was outstanding in Life in a Metro...that is comedy...

Madhuri's comic timing was very good in Lajja, Khel, Jamai Raja and many more. I find Juhi overrated tbh. People always call her a great comic actress and she finds it difficult to live upto the expectations. She was so bad in the lighter scenes in her recent film Chalk and duster that I couldn't believe I was watching Juhi. Others I agree with you.

We are already laughing at you, you dumbo!!!

sweetie they already laugh at you bc of your silly comments

Just tell karan. He will make it happen.

what a pity.. she is not aware see is indeed already a big comedy actress and people die out laughing at her jokes..

next week there will be an announcement that KJo is producing a comedy film with alia in the lead

Too bad she didn't get golmaal 4, went to parineeti

We already do... your desperation is comic

yes alia u have done so mny versatile roles.i wud love to see u do a comedy!you wud do dat well too..all d best !
