Alia Bhatt is all praise for the Sonam Kapoor-starrer Neerja but says she would be upset if she does not win an award for her widely acclaimed performance in Udta Punjab.
During a recent episode of Koffee with Karan, when show host Karan Johar asked the actress if her Udta Punjab act was the performance of the year and if she felt her acting was better than Sonam Kapoor’s in Neerja, Alia said, “Honestly, I think that Sonam was very good in ‘Neerja’.”
When further asked whether she would be upset if she does not bag the best actress award, the actress said, “I will be upset. Not upset, but I would be like ‘why not’?.”
In the Abhishek-Chaubey directed Udta Punjab, Alia played the role of a migrant labourer. The film revolved around the insurgence of substance abuse among the young people in Punjab, through the stories of a rock star, a migrant labourer, a doctor and a policeman.
Meanwhile, the new teaser of Dear Zindagi starring Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt showcases relationship patterns in Kaira’s life. She falls in love easily, breaks up and when that happens, everything about a romantic relationship makes her angry, reports Indian Express.
