The super talented Alia Bhatt, debuted in Karan Johar’s Student of The Year and there was no looking back ever since. Not only did she win hearts with her outstanding performances, but also looked greater with every film gone by. The actress has never shied away from speaking highly of her mentor, Karan Johar, often crediting him for her success. However, what many of you don’t know is the condition KJo had before giving Alia the role in Student of The Year. Any guesses?
The filmmaker asked the actress to shed some pounds for the role of the young and sexy, Shanaya Singhania. The determined Alia wasted no time and dedicated all her time in getting into shape for the role. That’s where Alia’s love for fitness begun, and it has only grown stronger with time. She now regularly works out with ace trainer Yasmin Karachiwala, giving fans sneak peeks into her workouts through her social media accounts.
Spekaing about his involvement in Alia’s weight loss, Karan on his radio show said, “I asked Alia to lose weight and now, when I see her hysterical about how she looks, I feel responsible… She’s in the gym every day and even if she puts on an extra kilo, she goes crazy. I think I am to blame for it. Now that I am a parent, I would never do this to Roohi and I would like to apologise to Alia.”
Aww! We wonder how Alia feels about Karan’s motivation!
