KJo proud his `little child` Alia has emerged as an actor

Karachi Karan Johar, who gave Alia Bhatt her first break in Bollywood, revealed he is glad to watch his little child emerge as an actress of some caliber.

“Two years down the line, Alia has an amazing repertoire of films. I, however, apologise for ‘Shaandar’. Besides that, she has had some amazing films like ‘2 States’, ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya’ and ‘Kapoor and Sons’. Alia is Dharma Productions’ proud girl and will always be the flagship girl of the company,” the Express Tribune quoted the 43-year-old filmmaker as saying during the success party of his latest venture ‘ Kapoor and Sons’.

Karan further said that when he launched Alia and Sidharth Malhotra in their first film, he never thought that he would see them come through this way on celluloid.

“I watched Alia in ‘Highway’; I wept a little bit only because I couldn’t believe my little child has emerged as an actor,” he added. (ANI)
