It looks like there is no stopping Alia Bhat! The actress is already basking in the success of Raazi and now, she has added yet another feather to her cap. After Bareilly Ki Barfi, director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari has roped in Alia Bhatt for her next film, which is said to be a comedy-drama.

Alia, who is currently one of the most sought-after heroines in the industry told The Indian Express: “Contentment is very boring. I don’t like to be content. I like to be satisfied with a task and complete it. I then want to be satisfied with a new task. I keep moving on. And, goals are limiting. Once you achieve a goal, it is over. A new goal has to be set. It is better not to set goals. Keep working hard and keep getting better at it. That’s what I believe in.”


The untitled film has been penned by Dangal writer-director and Ashwiny’s husband, Nitesh Tiwari, along with Nikhil Mehrotra. Meanwhile, Alia also has a stellar line-up of big-budget films, including Ayan Mukerji’s Bharhmastra, Karan Johar’s Kalank and Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy in her kitty. Alia will also be seen doing a guest appearance in Aanand L Rai’s Zero, featuring Shah Rukh Khan.

Ashwiny, made her directorial debut with Nil Battey Sannata, featuring Swara Bhasker and Pankaj Tripathi. After this, she received critical and commercial success for her film Bareilly Ki Barfi in 2017. While no other details are revealed about Alia’s co-stars in the film, sources reveal that the actress has locked her dates for the film after summer 2019.
