Alia Bhatt on planning future in Hollywood like Priyanka Chopra
Ahead of Alia Bhatt, several actresses from Bollywood have been a part of Hollywood projects. However, it’s Priyanka Chopra’s success that serves as an inspiration. During an interview, Alia was asked about her plans in Hollywood. She was asked if she sees herself moving to the U.S., like her friend Priyanka Chopra Jonas.
The actress answered, “I think what Priyanka did was extremely brave and very different from what anyone has ever done. She’s such an inspiration to every young girl from India that has that big dream to be a global icon and a global star. I don’t think I could do that. I want to continue to do movies in India. And I want to be able to get these one-off, amazing international opportunities.” She added, “I still don’t know what I’m doing. It’s just this one film and we’ll see how it goes from here.”
She further spilled beans about the difference in working hours between Hollywood and Bollywood. She averred, “The days were shorter on Heart of Stone but so were the breaks. In India, there would be an hour for lunch, 30 minutes for snacks, and a later finish time.”
