Why should I have expectations and then be met with disappointment: Alia Bhatt on how she would react if her daughter wants to become an actor
Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt are currently celebrating the birth of their baby girl. The actors welcomed their first child together on November 6. Alia delivered the baby at HN Reliance Hospital, Girgaon in Mumbai just hours after she arrived at the hospital with her husband Ranbir. Now, in a new interview, Alia talked about her babygirl. The actor said that it's now something she can 'really prepare and plan for'. The actress also spoke about 'bringing up a child in the public eye'.
In an interview with Marie Claire, Alia said during pregnancy days, "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."
Speaking about her daughter wanting to pursue her career in acting, Alia 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 Bhatt, on November 6, announced on social media that she welcomed a baby girl. She posted the same with a photo of a lion’s family. Her note read, “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."
