I'd Love to be Directed by my Father Says Alia Bhatt

Actress Alia Bhatt says she would love to be directed by her father Mahesh Bhatt, but she doesn't think it is going to be possible.

Alia made her Bollywood debut with "Student Of The Year", which also marked the launch of actors Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra.

While Varun's second film "Main Tera Hero" is directed by his father David Dhawan, Alia doubts she will ever get a chance to work under her father's direction, no matter how much she wants it.

"I would love to be directed by my father, but I think he won't return to direction for anybody. That's not possible," Alia said here.

Mahesh Bhatt, who is credited with movies like "Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin", "Aashiqui", "Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke" and "Zakhm", last directed the Jackie Shroff and Sanjay Dutt starrer "Kartoos" in 1999.

Alia is awaiting the release of her next film "Highway", helmed by Imtiaz Ali.

The 20-year-old believes she is "very competitive", but said: "I am not competitive in a negative way...competitive in a way to outshine myself."
