Alia Bhatt: Concerned about bringing up my child in public eye
‘Don’t want want an intrusion in my child’s life,’ she said
Alia Bhatt spoke about her newborn daughter and bringing her up in the public eye in a new interview. When asked how she would react if her daughter wants to become an actor, she said it’s something she can’t “really prepare and plan for”. Alia also added that she doesn’t want “any expectations and then be met with disappointment.”
Alia and actor-husband Ranbir Kapoor became parents on November 6. Announcing her daughter’s arrival, Alia wrote on Instagram, “And in the best news of our lives:- Our baby is here...and what a magical girl she is. We are officially bursting with love - Blessed and obsessed parents!!!! Love love love Alia and Ranbir.”
In an interview with Marie Claire, Alia said, "I am a little concerned about bringing up a child in the public eye. I talk about it with my friends, with my family, and my husband a lot. I don’t want there to be a, sort of, intrusion into my child’s life. Because at the end of the day, I have chosen this path, but maybe my child may not want to choose this path when he or she grows up...so that’s something that I feel very protective about."
Talking about her daughter wanting to pursue her career in acting, she said, "I don’t think that’s something that I can really prepare and plan for. I don’t want to have any fixed ideas of how I want that to be. Because why should I have any expectations and then be met with any disappointment or elation or anything of that sort? So they need the slate blank, a bit."
Alia and Ranbir tied the knot on April 14, after dating for several years. In June, they announced the pregnancy.
On the work front, Alia was last seen in Brahmastra Part One: Shiva. She will be next seen in Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani with Ranveer Singh and also has Hollywood project Heart of Stone in her kitty.
