WEB DESK: With actors working across the border is now a trend and something everyone is appreciating, another one of Bollywood actress has shown interest in making it into Hollywood after Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra. Director Mahesh Bhatt’s 22 year-old daughter Alia Bhatt has shown desire to work in the west.

“In terms of offers, nothing interesting has come my way so far. But there is a want, a thought of going to the West. Right now I want to focus on my work here (Bollywood) and make a mark for myself. Then I do have thoughts of going ahead,” Alia told PTI.

Three years ago, Alia Bhatt has made her debut with the pro Karan Johar directorial, “Student of the Year”, and then gave noteworthy performances in “Highway” and “2 States”, the actress is now confident over her acting skills.

“I am genuinely confident, but I am not over -confident. I believe a little bit of nervousness and uncertainity should be there, as that is how you go a long way,” she said.

She said: “I think as long as you have a good support system that keeps you grounded, it is good. You may be famous and people want your autograph, take selfies with you, but you are a normal human being to your family.”

“If you are surrounded by people who keep telling you that you are great, then you will go crazy. If my family and friends don’t like anything about my work, they tell me. It is important to have honest opinion around yourself,” she added.

Alia will next be seen on screen in a Karan Johar production,”Kapoor and Sons“, opposite Siddharth Malhotra and Pakistani heartthrob, Fawad Khan.
