Mumbai: Actress Alia Bhatt says her father Mahesh Bhatt is her go-to person whenever she is caught in a panic situation.
Asked to comment on her bonding with her father, the 22-year-old actress said: “He never makes me realise that ‘I know more than you’. He treats me like an equal and that’s the best way to have a father and daughter relationship. He is like a friend, he is level-headed and he knows how to tackle every situation.
“In a panic situation, the first person I call is my father.”
On the work front, Alia will next be seen on screen in “Kapoor & Sons”, a family film.
She believes that people take their family for granted.
“We take our family for granted and don’t give them too much of time. I have not met my family for the longest time because of my hectic schedule. So, I feel this should not happen. This film is basically about a Kapoor family and I am not part of that family in this film.
“In fact, my screen space is not too much in this film, but the quality (of work) matters to me and not the quantity.”
Directed by Shakun Batra, “Kapoor & Sons” also features Rishi Kapoor, Ratna Pathak Shah, Rajat Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra and Fawad Khan. It is releasing on March 18.
