Alia Bhatt recalls initial nerves working with Shah Rukh Khan: 'My mind went completely blank'

Actor Alia Bhatt attended the Red Sea International Film Festival on December 7 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. At the event, Alia discussed her career, and married life with Ranbir Kapoor, and reminisced about her first scene with Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Dear Zindagi.’ She also shared her 'cheat code' to act in an interactive session.

She revealed, ‘Shah Rukh really likes to rehearse. So the day before we sat and we spoke about the scene various times.’

Alia added, ‘As we went on sets (Dear Zindagi), and we were doing the first shot together, I think I froze. My mind went completely blank because I couldn’t believe it. And then Gauri (Shinde) had to come and whisper in my ears, ‘You have to forget The Shah Rukh Khan’, and I was like, ‘Okay.’ Actually, my character had to give him attitude and I was like, ‘How to do this’.’

The actor also talked about how she is naturally inclined towards characters that require a change in dialect. She said, ‘So, I take it upon as a challenge and I really enjoy doing it. There is a lot of prep work but I feel it makes half of the job much easier where you can just give a completely new face to a character and that will not be anything like you. So, like ‘Oh wow! What a great actor because she’s not like that’. So, it’s actually like a cheat code. It takes new lengths in your performance.’

At the event, Alia looked stunning in an off-shoulder dress, figure-hugging dress at the closing ceremony red carpet. Several photos and videos of Alia have been shared on her online fan pages.
