Veteran filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt is proud and happy over the journey of his daughter Alia in the world of showbiz.
As Alia went into nostalgic mode with her film “Highway” clocking two years since its release on Sunday by tweeting how the journey and experience of the film still give her goose bumps, the proud father responded by sharing that he is in awe of how she has carved her name in Bollywood.
“The miracle of children is that we just don’t know how they will change and who they will become. You (Alia) make me so happy,” said Mahesh, who has also called Alia a superstar on public platforms.
To which, the “2 States” star said: “Hopefully half as wise as you daddy…I love you too much”.
Helmed by Imtiaz Ali, “Highway” traces the journey of a girl from an affluent family of Delhi after she is kidnapped and how she falls for her abductor as she finds solace in his company.
Alia was lauded for experimenting and coming out of her peppy and glamourous mould of “Student of the Year” character.
She is now looking forward to the release of “Kapoor & Sons”, and has also started shooting for her next opposite Shah Rukh Khan.
