Alia Bhatt wishes to play Jennifer Lawrence of 'Silver Linings Playbook'
Mumbai: Alia Bhatt seems to be in awe of Jennifer Lawrence as the Bollywood actress has expressed keen desire to essay her Hollywood contemporary's character from the Oscar-winning film 'Silver Linings Playbook'.
Alia opined on Hollywood and its opportunities and more during a conversation on audio show "Take 2 with Anupama and Rajeev" on Saavn.
"It's funny that you mentioned Jennifer Lawrence, but I love her and I relate a lot to her for some reason. I feel like we are pretty similar and she is a fabulous actress as well. But the only difference is which is what I wish, I think it's changing here and I feel like we are moving in a space where content is really becoming the focus of all our attention," Alia said.
"At least out there, there is a lot of respect and love given to writers and just writing which we are still waking up to over here so that's the only thing I would want maybe that just more respect for the writers so they feel motivated because eventually it's all in the writing.
"And of course the directing but eventually that's your raw material. So better opportunities I don't know but yes definitely I've seen characters like I would've loved to play Jennifer Lawrence's character in the 'Silver Lining Playbook' and I was like that's such a brilliant character to play but maybe someday, hopefully," Alia added.
"Take 2 with Anupama and Rajeev" has discussions and chats about recent releases, industry trends and conversations with various actors, producers and directors from the Indian film industry.
The audio show will have 12 episodes with each episode running for 20 minutes, every Tuesday.
