Alia Bhatt Says Her Daughter, Raha Has Been A Big Reader, Remarks, 'She Hugs Her Books To Sleep'

Alia Bhatt has recently stepped into the world of penmanship, as she authored her first-ever children’s book, Ed Finds A Home. Of course, it requires no explanation that her recent achievement has gotten a keen takeaway from her experiences of reading books to her one-year-old daughter, Raha Kapoor. And now, the doting mommy fondly talks about her baby girl’s incomparable love for books.

Alia Bhatt reveals how her daughter, Raha Kapoor hugs books while sleeping

In a recent interview with the PTI, Alia Bhatt opened up about an interesting habit of her daughter. The doting mommy revealed that her baby girl, Raha Kapoor is a big reader, and she even hugs her book to sleep each night. Moreover, Alia mentioned that she often reads not one or two, but even four books each day to her daughter, who listens to them keenly. In her words:

“I have been reading Raha a book every day, every afternoon, every night. We read not one, not two, but three books, and many times four books. She loves her books... She hugs her books to sleep, that's how much she loves her books.”

Alia reveals she never was a great reader herself while growing up

Speaking along the same lines, Alia then expressed how her daughter has developed a habit quite different than her own. The actress recalled that back during her childhood, she was never a reader, and it was, in fact her sister, Shaheen, who used to read a lot of books back then, including the large series of Harry Potter books. Adding how both her mother, Soni Razdan and sister, Shaheen used to urge her to read books, Alia said:

“Ironically, I was not a big reader as a kid. In fact, it was my sister who was a big reader, she used to sit in her bathroom and read Harry Potter books till late at night... And I literally remember my mum and my sister shoving books in my face all day long, 'Alia, read, read'.


Alia Bhatt says she preferred looking out the window than reading books

In the concluding segment of the interview, Alia revealed that she was a hyperactive child while growing up, as a result it was difficult for her to sit still and read books. Instead, she would prefer looking outdoors and listen to stories being told by others than to read those herself. She added:

“I was too busy looking outside the window and being in my head, my way of entertainment was people telling me stories. My grandfather used to tell me stories... It was very difficult for me to sit still, I was hyperactive.”
