Who doesn’t want a clean India: Alia Bhatt on Swachh India campaign with Varun Dhawan


Actress Alia Bhatt attended 2nd edition of Lokmat Maharashtra’s Most Stylish Awards on Tuesday in Mumbai. While interacting with media, Alia talked about the Swachh India campaign with Varun Dhawan.

Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt have come together to recreate the magic of Romeo and Juliet, only this time, to spread the message of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan – ‘Don’t waste your love on somebody, who doesn’t value #SwachhIndia.’ The duo has also made a new out of the word short clip, literally since it is on the moon. Alia Leaves the filmy astronaut on the moon due to his littering habit.

While talking about the campaign, Alia said, “Who doesn’t want a clean India. Definitely, it’s very important campaign and we added some humor to it so that people can also get entertained but the point is ‘Badlega scene Jab India hoga clean’.”

Alia is one of the few actresses of Bollywood who has been successfully able to find balance between commercial and realistic films, talking about her next film ‘ Raazi’, Alia said, “I think in ‘Raazi’ audience will see me in completely different avatar, at least that is my wish because ‘Raazi’ as a film itself is very different film. Its first time I am doing a period film and the film is based on true story as well, so I am very excited for it and I hope audience will like it”

When asked Alia whether she likes to be stylish, she said, “Obviously. I really like to stay stylish. I think it has become necessary to be stylish but actually, from inside I enjoy being stylish”

‘Raazi’ is an adaptation of Harinder Sikka’s Calling Sehmat, a novel inspired by the almost-unbelievable real-life story of the woman who Sikka named Sehmat, to protect her identity.

Alia is playing Sehmat, a Kashmiri woman who marries a Pakistani officer with the intention to source out intelligence details and pass it off to Indian forces. Vicky Kaushal is essaying the role of the Pakistani officer.

‘Raazi’ is being directed by Meghna Gulzar and produced by Karan Johar and Vineet Jain.

It is scheduled to release on 11 May 2018
