When life partner happens, I hope he is not a youth icon because I doubt if I would be youthful then. Whether life partner is hot or not, he has to be a nice man. He should be funny, responsible, he should be sweet and he should love me a lot.

Actress Alia Bhatt says her life partner need not be a “youth icon” or a “heartthrob” but he must be a nice man with a good heart.
“When life partner happens, I hope he is not a youth icon because I doubt if I would be youthful then. Whether life partner is hot or not, he has to be a nice man. He should be funny, responsible, he should be sweet and he should love me a lot,” Alia told reporters recently.
The 23-year-old actress has received rave reviews this year for her performances in Kapoor & Sons and Udta Punjab.


On being asked if she is expecting any award, Alia said, “That we will see, saal abhi baaki hai mere dost (the year is not over yet, my friend).
“I just want the awards and rewards from the audience. I want them to come and watch the film (Dear Zindagi), love it, relate to it and feel all the emotions that I went through while making the film.”


Alia Bhatt also says that after working with Shah Rukh Khan, she realised that they both share a similar thought process. At the promotional interactions on recently for her upcoming release, asked about her personal equation with Shah Rukh, said, “I got to know Shah Rukh as a person during the shooting. Before this, I hardly spent time with him. We met socially sometimes, but only after spending time with him, I realised that our thought process is quite similar.”


“Shooting with Shah Rukh Khan is a big deal, specially for me, as I have been in industry for just 4 years, so I was bit nervous. But he is a very warm person. He goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable. And he exactly did that. So after, half day of shooting I was feeling quite relaxed,” she added.


Alia, who is always known for her poor jokes and her ‘not so great’ general knowledge, feels that flaws should not be hidden away, but celebrated. “Flaws have to be there. We have come up with something like ‘Flawsome’. It’s like, to have flaws is awesome. If you have flaws, do not hide. Like I have a flaw of speaking too fast, but I celebrate it instead of hiding away from it. So everyone has some flaws, but its not bad as flaws are also necessary,” she said.


The actress who have portrayed a wide range of roles within a short span of four years admits that Dear Zindagi is a very different film and admires her director Gauri Shinde for it. “The film is genuinely different. People have not seen or experienced this kind of story before. Its a story about life and people would definitely take something with them after watching this film,” she said.


Dear Zindagi, also starring superstar Shah Rukh Khan, Kunal Kapoor, Ali Zafar and Angad Bedi, is set to hit theatres on November 25.
