Just like her father Mahesh Bhatt, actress Alia Bhatt sure knows how to answer questions with a pinch of salt and some crackling humour. At a recent event, Alia was asked if she felt uncomfortable doing steamy scenes in front of the camera and was further quizzed about her father and family’s reaction to it. Within seconds, Alia’s expression changed and with a smile on her face, she replied, “Err… have you seen my father’s films?” Everyone around began laughing, including the actress. She further explained, “On screen, I am an actor and not his daughter. Anyway, I don’t think too much about such things.” The audience couldn’t help but say, ‘Like father, like daughter’.
It is very rare to see any team member of the film clicking pictures at the press conference. But Mahesh Bhatt being Mahesh bhatt, who does things differently, was seen clicking pictures of the lead pair of Citylights recently.
It was at the trailer launch of the film in Delhi and present on the occasion were lead pair Rajkummar Rao and Patralekha along with director Hansal Mehta and producer Bhatt. Seeing the good feedback for the trailer, a happy Bhatt went on a picture clicking spree on his cell phone when Rajkummar Rao and Patralekha were interacting with the media. It seemed to be his way of extending all the support to the team.
Nothing gets Vivek Oberoi more charged than talking about his one-year-old son Vivaan Veer. The actor gets excited while saying that the little one has started joining words and phrases and is trying to communicate. But now as a dad, Vivek is more responsible and extra careful when he says anything because according to him, Vivaan is like a sponge who absorbs everything. “It’s very common to say shut up, but when he is around, I just stop myself because I don’t want him mouthing that. At least not right now. But he’s a lot of fun. I play with him and read educational books so that he picks up good things and if he discovers anything, he looks up at me. But what has us all in splits is when he gets bored of doing something he just says ‘dada I all done’. They have such a cute way of communicating,” said the proud father.
