Mahesh Bhatt can't just stop tweeting and praising about his beloved daughter, Alia Bhatt. Mahesh Bhatt, apparently, was one of the special guests at Highway special screening which took place yesterday. After watching the film, director Bhatt showered praise for both the film and its young heroine.
He tweeted after watching the film, "HIGHWAY takes the road less traveled & makes way deep into your heart". It looks like the veteran director is clean bowled by the beauty and realistic approach of the film directed by Imtiaz Ali. Be it parent affection or objective judgement on Alia Bhatt's acting, Mahesh Bhatt has gone as far as comparing his daughter's performance with National Awad Winner Shabana Azmi's performance in Arth which is also directed by him.
Bhatt explains, "I saw Alia in Highway. Alia overwhelms you with her heartbreaking sincerity. Her journey has begun. This is Alia's Arth. Highway is a film that will sparkle in Alia's filmography." It seems like this is Mahesh Bhatt's shill bidding to get his daughter a top place in Bollywood. Talented Alia may not need this hype because she is truly impressing the young crowd, nowadays, to a large extent.
This looks like a high point in Alia Bhatt's career as her film maker mother Soni Razdan also cast her in her new film which is loosely based on notorious Nanavati Murder case.
