Alia Bhatt has revealed that she suffered a heartbreak after her film Shaandaar flopped at the box office. The talented actress featured in Vikas Bahl's Shaandaar in 2015, and the film also starred Shahid Kapoor.
"Touch wood, 90 per cent of my films fared well at the box office. But there have been one failure, and because of that failure, I am calmer. For some strange reason Shaandaar didn't work at the box office. I was heartbroken. I could not believe it," said Alia, to reporters at the side line of an event. Alia said that she turned to her father for help as she does during most trying circumstances. "I turned to my father. He was the only person I was speaking to and then I went on a holiday solo to mourn the loss," she added.
She also admitted that getting back on her feet after the failure has been extremely tough. "I felt terrible, but after that I felt ho gaya. The bandage has been ripped. I have faced my first failure, and I will be ready for whatever comes. Getting up after the failure is very different. My father sent me this poster with Frank Sinatra's quote 'The best revenge is massive success'," Alia added
Alia's forthcoming film is Raazi, a Karan Johar production. It is a screen adaptation of Harinder Sikka's book Calling Sehmat. Raazi is scheduled to hit screens on May 11, 2018. Alia Bhatt also has movies like Gully Boy and Brahmastra in the pipeline.
