As Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s highly anticipated movie Gangubai Kathiawadi gears up for theater release, Alia Bhatt is leaving no stone unturned to promote it. She is currently in Berlin to attend the Berlin International Film Festival as the film premieres at the event.

Alia is one of the most sought after actresses in Bollywood. She has won numerous awards for her portrayal of an Indian spy in Meghna Gulzar’s Raazi, which was released in 2018. The film became her solo hit of the year, amassing over Rs 120 crore at the domestic box office. She also starred in yet another commercial and critically acclaimed film Gully Boy.

While Alia Bhatt enjoys a huge following in the country but not many people know that she cannot vote in elections in India. She also spoke about it ahead of the 2014 general election. Speaking to Hindustan Times, she said: ‘Unfortunately I cannot vote because I have a British passport. I am out of date this time (to get the official voting documents), but I will try to get my voting card next time (elections) once I have dual citizenship. (sic; India doesn’t actually allow dual citizenship).”

Meanwhile, Alia is gearing up for the release of her movie Gangubai Kathiawadi. Since the trailer was released, fans have been excited to see her in a never-before-seen avatar. However, a certain section of people claimed that the actress was not suitable for the role even at a time when the film was announced in 2019. Some said she’s too young to play such a larger-than-life dynamic role.

In an exclusive conversation with Koimoi, Alia Bhatt addressed the concerns people had against her. She said: “Yeah, people must have suggested a casting. But I feel like you shouldn’t really get into it. Someone who is a director who has been working for 25 years clearly knows who to star. I I thought it was okay that people thought I wasn’t right for the part, because that’s their own perspective.”
