Did You Know Pankaj Tripathi Prepped Alia Bhatt For Udta Punjab? What She Revealed Will Shock You

-

Alia Bhatt who is currently in news for her controversial statement made on nepotism trolls has revealed big news about her 2016 project Udta Punjab. The movie starred Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Diljit Dosanjh along with Alia Bhatt in the lead roles. The actress garnered a lot of praise for her role and performance. In the movie, she essayed the role of Bauria aka Mary Jane, a migrant Bihari girl working in Punjab who is also an ex-hockey player.

In a recent interview, Alia revealed that she was not the choice for the movie and how she convinced Abhishek Chaubey for the role. She also revealed how Pankaj Tripathi played an important role to help her prep for the movie.

Alia said, "Shahid and I were shooting for 'Shaandaar' at the time. He told me about the script and that it is such a good script and he wants me to read it. I read the script and I was like 'Wow, what a part'. I was like, 'listen I want to do this part'. Then I met Chaubey and I had to convince him that I would do it. For Chaubey to reimagine me as that character was a big thing. We did a look test and he was still not sure. I said I will work very hard. I wanted to prove to myself and the world that I am a chameleon."

Further, talking about Pankaj Tripathi she revealed that the Mirzapur actor trained her at least for a month. She said, 'Pankaj Tripathi has always been an extremely reputed and loved actor, but this is before he broke into the movie scene. He was very loved in theater and reputed amongst actors. Pankaj sir along with Chaubey and myself would sit and work on the dialogues every day. My character does not speak much in Udta Punjab. He taught me to sit and speak the way the natives do. Then he made me do a lot of acting workshops, how to loosen the body, a certain expression which is dead eyes, open mouth. But there is so much intricacy inside the eye, there is so much depth and so much pain. Udta Punja was the first film that I kind of went method on. I didn't take my phone on set."

On the work front, Alia Bhatt has Brahmastra, Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, and Jee Le Zaraa in her pipeline.
