Pursuing a career in Bollywood can be very unpredictable, and that's exactly why Alia Bhatt has a back-up plan if she fails to make her mark as an actress in Bollywood. Yes, you heard it right!
The young teenager, who is just two films old knows exactly what
to do if she is not successful as a heroine. Alia Bhatt has decided
that if not an actress, then she would become a singer! Alia has
lent her voice for a song in her upcoming film Highway.
It so happened that director Imtiaz Ali asked her if she could sing for
Highway, and she immediately agreed. Speaking about her
experience at the films promotional event, Alia Bhatt said, "I am
not a singer... I think I am a bathroom singer. When I was asked to
sing I was excited and thought of trying it (singing) out. A R
Rahman sir was very patient with me. If I fail as an actress, I
will become a singer."
The reason why Imtiaz Ali asked Alia to sing was that the pretty
lass often sang Rahman's song 'Jiya Re Jiya' whenever the team
travelled (since it's a road movie). Imtiaz therefore thought of
exploring her singing talent. her singing talent. A.R. Rahman told
her to practice daily and assured her that if she learns singing
for atleast two years, she could easily release an album.
