Here’s why Alia had tears in her eyes

Alia Bhatt, who has embodied a wide range of performances from Dear Zindagi to Udta Punjab, has come out to be one of the most versatile heroines of her time. Bhatt plays the character of Safeena, a medical student in the movie Gully Boy, who loves her significant other Murad (Ranveer Singh) immensely while dealing with her own set of struggles.

When asked about her role in the movie and the reason behind choosing an offbeat character like Safeena, Bhatt asserted her excitement to work with Zoya for the first time. When Safeena's character was described to her, she was touched by it and had tears in her eyes. This is exactly when she knew she is up for this role and her mind was clear.
