Alia Bhatt has always been quite vocal about her admiration for Kareena Kapoor Khan. On many public events, Alia has praised Kareena Kapoor and said that she is her fan. Initially, she was even compared to the Jab We Met actress.
Recently, Alia penned a lovely letter for Kareena Kapoor Khan and wrote, “Dear Kareena,
Apne career ke bulandi pe
Tumne chuna Chameli jaisa role
Par un galliyon mein jo waqt bitaya, kissi ne na jana
Tum ho mere liye ek inspiration
Kareena Kapoor Khan expressed her gratitude and love after reading the letter saying "I love you Alia"
Recently, Deepika Padukone had also written a letter to Alia Bhatt and it seems that Alia Bhatt was definitely inspired by it. Deepika had written, “Dear Alia,
Highway mein tum bina makeup ki bhi khoobsurat lagi,
Lekin road par bitaye woh 52 mushkil din, kissi ko nazar nahi aaye,
Alia tum ho sabse chotti, par mehnat karne mein sabse badi.
Your biggest fan,
Alia Bhatt and Kareena Kapoor starred in Udta Punjab. Alia had then said in an interview, "Honestly speaking, I am not even trying to compete with Kareena because that would be stupid with me. She is in a different league of acting, stardom and talent altogether. I am still learning and very new to this field. For me it's a very big thing that I am starring in the same film with her. Even if she is overshadowing me, then I don't think all that really matters. Each character in the film is different. Over that, the job is not to overshadow but to play your part to the fullest and I am sure that Kareena has done far superior job than I could have ever done and I say that from my heart."
