Alia always wanted to work with Mani Ratnam

New Delhi: Alia Bhatt recently revealed that she is keen to work with veteran director Mani Ratnam.

During the unveiling of her Femina cover, when the 22-year-old actress was asked if she would make a regional debut, she said, “My dad (Mahesh Bhatt) keeps pushing me to watch regional films. He had said that I should definitely do Bengali films.”

“I’ve always wanted to work with Mani Ratnam, so maybe I’ll go down south and work with Mani sir,” she added.

Talking about her ‘Kapoor and Sons’ co-star Fawad Khan, who has also shared the cover with her, the ‘Highway’ star said, “For the first time, I’m posing with Fawad on a cover, so that’s also a first, so I like firsts because they’re always interesting and exciting and this is one of my favourite covers because we tried something different, we went to a completely weird, strange location, so I really hope it’s worth it.” (ANI)
