In an interview with Marie Claire, Alia Bhatt opened up about the constant media scrutiny and revealed that it's the price that she has to pay with the fame that she gets. Talking about the same, the actress shared that there are times when she just wants to vanish and disappear. Adding that a lot of good stuff happens from the limelight as well, Alia said:

"There are moments when you feel a bit overwhelmed with the attention and the volume of conversation around your life. But the only thing I’ve had to tell myself is: You knew you wanted to become an actor, and that you wanted to be really good at it, and you wanted to be extremely celebrated. Then you can’t want—and not pay—the price that comes with it. You can’t have your cake and eat it, too. There are in-between times when I would like to maybe vanish and disappear. There’s a lot of good stuff that happens from this attention, from this limelight, as well."


Alia Bhatt also threw light on the stressful times in her life and shared that sometimes she wants to vent and cry her heart out. Talking about the importance of therapy, the actress mentioned that she would like to have a moment of distress without any judgement. In her words:

"Sometimes I need to vent. Sometimes I need to, sort of, have a moment of distress, and I want to have that with no judgment. And, maybe, the only way to do that is through therapy, and I’m totally for it."

Further in the interview, the actress also talked about the importance of practising self-love and mentioned that people should stop picking on themselves first. Encouraging people to be confident in their skin and appreciate their appearance, Alia stated that one should enjoy their life to the fullest. She concluded:

"I have my days, I’ve had my days. But I’m saying, if you pick on yourself first, then you’re inviting every other person’s negative thoughts towards your body. If you yourself are armed with confidence and a certain level of appreciation for the way you look and the way you are, then nothing in the world will bother you...especially in the world of Instagram and TikTok and all these filters. You have one life, so just enjoy it as much as possible."
