Bollywood actor Alia Bhatt, currently on a high with the success of her latest release ‘Gully Boy’, opened up about her dad and filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt in an interview and said the ‘Zakhm’ director was “always a celebrity who would walk into the house”. Speaking with Komal Nahata on Zee Cafe’s Starry Nights 2.OH, Alia said, “For me, he was always like a celebrity who would walk in to the house. I didn’t miss him as such because I did not really have him. But after a couple of years, he made sure he spent some time with us, played board games. The real friendship started when I entered the Bollywood industry and I understand how it must have been for him. It is such a consuming job.” Published in Daily Times, February 20th 2019.
