In a recent interview with News 18 Showsha, Alia Bhatt was asked about Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Love & War co-starring Ranbir Kapoor and Vicky Kaushal. To this, the actress mentioned that there are many layers to look forward to, making it hard to choose just one.

She emphasized that the primary highlight is the pleasure and honor of working with "Sanjay sir" once again. She noted that flourishing under his guidance and gaze is the first step, and his meticulous attention to detail and focus on his actors allows you to go anywhere with it.

However, she admitted to being excited to see her husband Ranbir Kapoor’s reunion with the Heeramandi director after so many years.

She said, “I, as an audience, am more excited to see him (Bhansali) and Ranbir collaborate, again, after so many years. I am like, ‘wow, what’s that going to be like?” Talking about reuniting with Vicky Kaushal, Alia added, “Vicky and I coming together again; Ranbir and Vicky created magic with Sanju. So, it is a lot of combinations.”


That being said, the actress emphasizes the importance of focusing on hard work rather than allowing other distractions to get in the way. She believes that being passionate about the film and the material is crucial, and giving it her all while on set is the key.

Speaking highly of the director, the actress dropped a hint about the film being a “perfect balance of cool and nostalgia” where audiences will get to see Easter Eggs, a pivotal part in all Vasan’s films.

She also mentioned Vedang, who plays her brother in the film, describing him as "sublime" and stating that their relationship on set was very seamless and easygoing.


Jigra is backed by Alia Bhatt’s Eternal Sunshine and Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions.
