Alia Bhatt recently appeared on the latest episode of ‘Koffee With Karan 8,’ where she spoke at length about her personal and professional life.
Actor Alia Bhatt recently opened up about her daughter Raha Bhatt Kapoor on the chat show, Koffee With Karan 8. The actor said she had a tough time shooting for Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani after giving birth to Raha.
ALIA ON BEING AWAY FROM RAHA DURING ROCKY AUR RANI SHOOT
Speaking to KJo, Alia said, ‘Actually, at that time, I remember basically I felt like a picture came out of hers, and it was our schedule in Kashmir (for Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani). It was a very, very difficult schedule for me because it was my first time shooting after giving birth. And no matter what anybody says, it takes really long for your body to bounce back.
I still feel like I am undergoing some changes. I was not sleeping at night. I was feeding. I was rushing in between shoots and stuff. So I remember calling up Ranbir and saying, ‘Listen I am finding it very difficult’. So he pushed his work. He said, ‘Do not worry. I am going to come pick her up. He said, ‘I am going to come pick her up. I am going to take her. I have pushed my work. She will be with me.’ And it was really like relaxing for me.’
‘I SAW A PHOTO WHERE THE SIDE OF HER FACE…’
Alia said she suffered from mother’s guilt during that separation period from Raha.
‘So that guilt carried on. It was just one-and-a-half days later that I travelled back and I saw a photo, where the side of her (Raha’s) face was kind of visible. And I just broke down. I realised I was not breaking down because I don’t want people to see her face. Honestly, when we are meeting people, Ranbir and I are constantly like, ‘Please give her your blessings. Raha do namaste’.
We are proud of our baby. But it was just too many emotions put together and I am so protective of my loved ones that I just felt like ‘Oh God, I don’t want that conversation’. I realised I was just exhausted and overwhelmed at that point,’ Alia concluded.
On the work front, Alia was last seen in Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani. She is now looking forward to the Vasan Bala directorial, Jigra.
