In a short span of time, Bollywood star Alia Bhatt has already left a huge mark in the industry. Making her debut with Karan Johar’s Student of the Year back in 2012, the starlet has proved her mettle as an actress. Her acting in Highway, Udta Punjab and Raazi was lauded by many, putting her in the list of one of the finest performers of Bollywood. She’s currently gearing up for the release of Brahmastra opposite beau Ranbir Kapoor and also working on Baahubali director’s RRR. Alia also has Sadak 2, Inshaallah and Takht lined up, but there’s something more that the actress is looking for.
Reports suggest that the young actress is desperately looking for a biopic to star in. Since many of the other actors and actresses – that too the biggest ones of the industry – have gone on to sign in biopics, she believes it’s time for her to sign one as well, however, she hasn’t found the right one yet. A source revealed that she has already put a word out in Bollywood and if something were to come her way, she won’t mind saying yes.
Since the past few years, Bollywood has been churning out one biopic after the other. These are not only limited to the stars of the industry, like Ranbir’s Sanju, but also touch up on sports personalities like former Indian cricket captain MS Dhoni, or national heroes such as Neerja. Currently, Deepika Padukone and Parineeti Chopra are two actresses who are filming biopics. Deepika is also producing her next film, titled Chapaak, whereas Parineeti will be playing Indian badminton player, Saina Nehwal. Earlier, Shraddha Kapoor was cast to play the badminton star, however, a few months after training she dropped out of the film due to scheduling conflicts. Janhvi Kapoor will also be seen playing India’s first female Indian Air Force pilot, Gunjan Saxena.
