Apart from her acting skills, the mother of one, Alia, is also known for her goofy nature. Years ago, she had spilled beans about whom she would cast for which role from one of the top-rated American sitcoms, Friends, if ever made in Bollywood. And today, we stumbled upon that video. Check it out below!

In one of the promotional events of Dear Zindagi, Alia Bhatt was asked whom she would cast as the characters of Friends if ever made in Bollywood. The Raazi actress, even though wanted to be Phoebe Buffay (played by Lisa Kudrow originally), she later chose Rachel Greene (Jennifer Aniston) as she had the beautiful love story in the sitcom. She can be heard saying, “Okay, I’ll be Rachel. Deepika (Padukone) can be Monica Geller (Courteney Cox).”

Alia Bhatt then revealed, “Phoebe can be Kangana.” Explaining further, she had said, “Not because Kangana is weird and all, as I had called Phoebe weird, but because I feel it’s very, um the moods and everything if anyone had to play, I think only she can ace it. For Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry), somebody very sarcastic- Arjun. Arjun Kapoor is super sarcastic. Ross Geller (David Schwimmer) is possibly very funny, his comic timing is bang-on. So somehow, Ranbir? Yeah, Ranbir Kapoor like really awkward and whatever. And Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc) can be Salman Khan.”
