The phenomenally talented and popular Alia Bhatt is on to the biggest challenge of her life - learning Telugu for SS Rajamouli’s RRR. She’s taking Telugu classes from a  private every day. Alia is confident she’s up to the challenge. “It is a challenge, yes. I can’t deny that. Telugu is really a tough language to learn. But it’s a very expressive language. I want to understand the nuances of  the language, why certain words are pronounced the way they are, and what do they convey. Only then will I be able to express my character’s feelings.”

Alia is putting her soul and then some more, into getting the Telugu right. “Believe me, these days an achievement for me is when I can learn and say a whole line in Telugu.” Speaking on being offered a role by the mighty Rajamouli who made the Baahubali series, Alia says, “Saying yes to the offer was a no-brainer. When I started my career as a leading lady, there were three filmmakers, I really wanted to work with. I got launched by one of them (Karan Johar) and now I’m working with the other two - Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Rajamouli.”

Alia is having a dream run at the box-office currently. She will be seen in the multi-starrer Kalank where she is being paired with Varun Dhawan yet again. This year she had a huge hit in Gully Boy (read the review here) directed by Zoya Akhtar, co-starring Ranveer Singh. Next up is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Inshallah where she will be seen with none other than Salman Khan.
