I feel like we are pretty similar and she is a fabulous actress as well. But the only difference is which is what I wish, I think it’s changing here and I feel like we are moving in a space where content is really becoming the focus of all our attention."

This Day That Year


i think her similarty may be that they both are versatile and do versatile roles. but how does that make you remotely similar to jennifer lawrence when other actresses in bwwod have also proved versatality. where is she getting at? and no you dont even look like her. being girl next door type doesnt make you similar to her. i dont understand the comparison. as far as personality....you are not on her level. pv pls post.

i dont see any similarity. just becasue you try and act like someone doesn't make you similar. she needs to get her own personality! it is a upgrade for alia to be compared to her...but what a downgrade for jennifer lawrence. jlaw is down to earth and real, genuinely funny as well without even knowing it.

Why is she so many wtf statements these days??

she tries to act like jennifer lawrence like a lot in interviews, etc. its funny cause she never started out like that during soty interviews. her personality completely changed, and started seeming more like parineeti's who i feel has one of the most unconventional personalities in bollywood, more similar to someone like jennifers. alia just copies.

Jennifer Lawrence started form nothing and became a huge star. Alia had a star family and papa Karan to get her good opportunities and scripts to get to where she is today.

Stop ripping off Hollywood -_- I already see this coming now.

I can also see Alia making irritating faces as in Dear Zindagi to show stress. And then Indian critics saying this is Alia's best performance. Absolute nightmare.

Jennifer and Alia not even in the same frame of comparison in terms on beauty and talent. Alia can only succeed here in BW with mentors and influence

Jennifer is talented, gorgeous, a genuinely funny and adorable. You are just a nepo kid. Ask ur pappa Karan to remake it.

I can’t hate on Alia after Highway and Udta Punjab. She’s a nepokid who has talent. KJo and Sodumb, however, can take several seats.

I agree. She can act, for real. I love Highway. I bet she looks back on SOTY and is embarrassed by her character. Varun still makes me wanna puke, he's a ridiculous over-actor and Sid is the opposite, a very weak actor.

Parineeti chopra reminds me more of Jennifer Lawrence, resembles her more too. Alia doesn't have her own personality she mirrors other people I've noticed. The only thing she can do is act cute

i really like alia but i think some one may have told her she is like the jlaw of india...the ultimate IT girl. umm..no you are not and neither should you be. you are you..that's better than any copy.

Oh she is preety tht ur not

Kjo listening? Now find a collabrator and produce it for her.

Please don't. It's such a boring movie.

Please No.. dont make a remake of it now.

Jennifer was excellent in silver lining

lol she thinks shes like jennifer lawrence but shes not. i dont see any similarity. and alia looks like a kid first off
