Alia Bhatt on producing films and shows

In an exclusive interview with Pinkvilla, Alia was asked how she decides whether she will act or not in any film or show she produces. The Jigra star said that it boils down to whether she fits the part or not.

She said: "Do you fit the part? That's the most important question. I don't think I fit every part, you know, so sometimes...and I'm working on a lot of stuff right now, which I'm not acting in. In fact, that I see other mainstream actresses in as well while we are creating them. I'm like, 'Oh, this will be great for this one'...or actors."

She added, "So, I am actually somebody who, something that very naturally happens, even when I am in a film, I don't look at it only from my character's point of view. So how is everybody sitting in this? So yeah, are you right for the part?"

In an earlier Instagram post, Alia showered praise on the show and called it one of the best. She wrote: "Poacher is one of the best shows I’ve seen in a very long time & I’m so grateful to be associated with such powerful storytelling that not only will entertain you.. but it’ll also stay with you long after!!"
