Bollywood director – producer Karan Johar, who gave Alia Bhatt her big break with ‘Student of the Year’, is glad to watch his ‘little child’ emerge as an actress of some calibre.
Karan said at a press conference to celebrate ‘Kapoor & Sons’ success,”Two years down the line, Alia has an amazing repertoire of films. I however apologise for ‘Shaandar’. Besides that, she has had some amazing films like ‘2 States’, ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya’ and ‘Kapoor & Sons’; Alia is Dharma Production’s proud girl and always the flagship girl of the company. When I launched Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra in their first film, I never thought I would see them come through this way on celluloid. I watched Alia in ‘Highway’; I wept a little bit only because I couldn’t believe my little child has emerged as an actor”.
