2019 started for Alia Bhatt on a good note as her first release of this - Gully Boy was a superhit at the box office. Directed by Zoya Akhtar, the film also starred Ranveer Singh in the lead role. In Gully Boy, Alia played the role of Ranveer's girlfriend, Safeena. Safeena was a very possessive character who had anger issues such that she would end up hitting people.

While many loved her performance, some thought her character was violent. In an interview with Mid Day, Alia Bhatt was asked her views on people calling Safeena violent. The Raazi actress said that she was her character as wild and that was liberating. Alia added that she doesn't endorse violence but she was real. Bhatt said, "What else would happen to someone who has been pigeonholed? She built up a lot of negative energy inside her, but as a person, she wasn’t toxic."

Alia added that the traits of her character look similar to a toxic person as she was manipulative, but she also called Safeena honest and colourful with her heart in the right place. She said, "Minus the violence, she was a top character."


Currently, Alia Bhatt is busy with the promotions of her film Kalank. Directed by Abhishek Varman, the film also stars Varun Dhawan, Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sonakshi Sinha.

Kalank is the first period film Alia is a part of. The film hits the screens on April 17, 2019.
