Why was Alia Bhatt in tears?

The Bhatt kid was emotional after completing the shoot of her latest film

Alia Bhatt is emotional after wrapping up the filming of 2 States. Father-filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt tried to comfort her with his encouraging words. “Last day of 2 States! It’s been beautiful and exciting. Will miss playing the Ananya Swaminathan. Too emotional today,” Alia tweeted Sunday. Dad Mahesh Bhat encouraged her by replying to her post: “My experience says that when the principal actor ‘weeps’ when a film is over, the maker smiles. This means your film is a hit.”

Alia, who will be seen as a Tamil Iyengar girl in the movie, based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel 2 States: The Story of My Marriage, hopes to weep for sure. “Well I hope I weep today then like I always do. Love you,” posted the actor.

Directed by Abhishek Verman, the story is about a Punjabi boy who falls in love with a Tamil girl, and the ensuing cultural clashes between them and their families.

Alia will also be seen in Imtiaz Ali’s Highway Diaries.
