Alia Bhatt's take on her success and leaving contemporaries behind should make sense to all millennials

Alia Bhatt spoke about being successful at such a young age and revealed why she doesn't care about competition with fellow actresses

With successive releases, Alia Bhatt has not only created a space for herself in the Bollywood industry but has also reached the peak of her career. Since her debut in Student of the Year in 2012the young actress has reinvented herself and proved her mettle with every release. Her films perform well at the Box Office and Alia has become one of the most bankable actors of the young generation. With releases like Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya, which went onto become a part of the Rs 100 Cr club, she has proved that she is capable of attracting audiences to the theatres. But Alia doesn’t seem to be affected by the success she has achieved. She revealed that she did not understand why people only talked about her commercial success, as she wants to just do good work.

Speaking to a leading daily, Alia said that her competition with contemporaries was something she considered to be trivial. Despite being miles ahead in the career as compared to her contemporaries like Parineeti Chopra and Shraddha Kapoor, Alia said that she wasn’t too attached to success. She said:

I don’t look at it that way. I don’t want to see things where I look at other people and think ‘Isko yeh mil raha hai, mujhe kyun nahi mil raha’. That’s a very one track mindset. Because nothing is permanent, things change every day. Today it’s me, tomorrow, it might be someone else.

Alia Bhatt added:

I’m not too attached to the idea of myself being successful. That’s not the reason I’m doing films. I am doing films just to satisfy my desire to be an actor and play different characters. Of course, I want the films to be good because I don’t want to cheat the audience. And because of that, my films become successful. So success is not the driving force, but it’s the byproduct of the passion and determination I have towards my movies.
