Last week Alia Bhatt announced that she was being awarded with the Time100 Impact Award. On Sunday the actress was present at the National Gallery in Singapore to accept the same. At the awards function, mom-to-be Alia Bhatt wowed the audience with a short yet powerful speech that touched upon her work in films, to her brands and of course her family. If that was not enough, the Brahmastra actress also spoke about her flaws, and how they play an important role in making Alia Bhatt.
In her speech, talking about flaws Alia added, “So, tonight, I want to take a moment with you all to celebrate my flaws along with my strengths. For example, I’m terrible at spelling. Like, really bad. But I do know what to say to someone who’s vulnerable. I have no sense of geography. Zero. I do not get directions. But I have a deep sense of respect and regard for different cultures. My general knowledge is widely known to be weak. But my emotional intelligence is something that I’ve worked really hard to cultivate. I have a tendency to be hard on myself with regards to my weight and my appearance. But I never say no to a french fry because, you know, YOLO.”
Continuing further while explaining that even in her film, she has tried to bring out a character’s flaws the actress added, “Through my movies and my characters, I’ve tried to celebrate flawed people. Because at the end of the day, it’s the imperfections that make a character compelling. So what I’m trying to say is that being yourself is truly the greatest impact that you could make. In the movies and in life, you do not have to be perfect; you just have to bring everything you have—the lows, the highs and the real things we are actually afraid of speaking about. There’s no greater impact than being yourself.”
Bollywood Hungama congratulates the actress and soon to be mother, Alia Bhatt on achieving such momentous success. On the work front, Alia Bhatt was last seen on the big screen in the Ayan Mukerji directorial Brahmastra alongside Ranbir Kapoor. Later, the actress will be seen making her Hollywood debut with Tom Harper’s Heart Of Stone.
