Alia Bhatt's statement on Raazi's success is how humility looks like at its best


Alia Bhatt has had a good Box Office run with most of her films. The actor says it has made her more confident about her choices. She has mixed her critically acclaimed turns in Highway, Udta Punjab and Raazi with mainstream films like 2 States and Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. Alia says she always looks for a relatability factor in her films.

"Unconventional can also be conventional and commercial if it connects with people. It is essential somewhere to maintain that balance. I was hoping this film (Raazi) strikes a balance and I am happy it did. It also makes me believe in the choices that I make as an actor," Alia said.

The actor says there will always be struggle no matter where one starts from. "My struggles will always be there. It is harder when you have expectations. My struggle is with myself, to outdo and out perform myself, to do something new and different. Just because things are working out for me as an actor in the film industry doesn't mean I don't struggle to make it work," Alia added.

Citing the example of her last release, Alia says she worked like a crazy person and shot for 16 hours a day as they had to make it in a certain kind of budget.

"Now that the film is being appreciated it all feels worth it. But that doesn't mean my struggles are over. It will continue as I will have to prove myself with every film."
