“A day will come when I will not be in films any more.
What do I do when that day comes? This is the mother of all fears for the entertainers who have walked on the planet.
Whatever man loves he will have to part with it one day as nothing lasts forever. The fear of losing it keeps me going too,” Alia said at the India Today Conclave 2017 in Mumbai, March 17.
The “Student of the Year” star says her father, filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, has taught her that fear is not a bad thing.
“My father has taught me that fear keeps you on your toes, it keeps you going. It’s ok, embrace it and use it to the best of your ability.
“I fear but I will give attention to my work, give my best and work with utmost dedication as I don’t want to lose it. I thank my father for telling me the hard truth. You are my reality and my reality check.”
Alia has cemented her position in Bollywood with films like “Highway,” “Udta Punjab” and “2 States” among others.
Despite achieving commercial success, the actress believes there is still a lot that she has to do workwise.
“I am growing, I don’t think I have achieved all. But I am grateful for the opportunities. I owe all this to my parents for instilling the belief in me that there is always someone who is better than you, so you have to walk the tight rope and do your best and keep going with the flow.”
