Alia Bhatt Draws Inspiration From Sanam Saeed

Alia said in an interview:

“Abhishek asked me to watch Zindagi Gulzar Hai. The character of the girl (Kashaf played by Sanam Saeed) in the show is very much how [my character] Roop will deal with the situation. She has responsibility on her shoulders so she is not always a happy person. She is vulnerable yet strong. It is difficult (to bring so many) layers – unhappy, vulnerable and strong to a character. Abhishek kept saying that I should be irritating.”

Sanam Saeed also reacted to the news on her Twitter:

Hopefully, this time there will be a Muslim character who will be speaking general Urdu without a Janab before every sentence😂
