Actress Alia Bhatt is playing a Bihari migrant in Abhishek Chaubey’s film Udta Punjab. Alia says she was avoided on the sets of the film as she was unrecognisable in her look.
“When we started shooting, I walked on to the sets and I was avoided by all. Nobody realised that it was me. Suddenly when I spoke to Chaubey, everybody realised and took five steps back. They felt they had made a blunder,” said Alia at the launch of the song Ikk Kudi from the film.
Speaking about her character, Alia said: “If a character is angry or upset or distraught, Alia doesn’t have anything to do with it because it is the character. I am comfortable doing whatever my character wants me to do.”
Udta Punjab also stars Shahid Kapoor, Diljit Dosanjh and Kareena Kapoor Khan. Produced by Balaji Motion Pictures and Phantom Productions, it is set to release on June 17.
