Actor Alia Bhatt's Hollywood debut, Heart of Stone, started streaming on Netflix. The film, headlined by Gal Gadot, also features Jamie Dornan in a prominent role. 

Talking about her Hollywood debut, Alia said to IANS,  "This was a super huge opportunity for me to be a part of a film like this and to break through to the global market. I've been working in the Indian film industry for ten years now, but this is my first English language film, and that's always something that I wanted to tick off my box."

Further mentioning her character, Keya Dhawan Alia added, "I also wanted it to be true to who I am and where I come from. I found that in Heart of Stone and in the character of Keya because she's from India and she's pushed against these extreme circumstances. She has to really prove herself, and she's fighting for something, as everyone is in the film, and she has her own motive," she added.

Stressing upon the opportunity to work with Gal Gadot and film's director Tom Harper the Rocky aur Rani Kii Prem Kahani actor said, "It's really the action film of today, one led by this really strong woman whom we all look up to and love. I really liked the whole narrative, and having seen Tom Harper's work as well, I was really excited to work with him. There were a lot of pluses that came together to make me feel I should take the plunge and do this."
