Alia Bhatt In New York For IIFA 2017
Alia has collaborated with the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) for the first time this year and during a press conference in New York, she was asked about it.
“I have not been a part of the IIFA till today and I feel like everything happens for a reason. It had to be when I was in New York. It had to be in front of all you beautiful people. And, it had to be in the year I was nominated for two films. So genuinely, it is really special," she added.
“I am very excited, nervous and enthusiastic for my performance. I am only thinking about that. I hope I do a good job,” she added.
Alia has been nominated in the Best Actress category for Udta Punjab and Dear Zindagi opposite actresses like Sonam Kapoor for Neerja, Anushka Sharma for Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Taapsee Pannu for PINK.
