Alia Bhatt has provided a response to a question about how the critical feedback on her movies affects her. Alia said in a recent interview that she doesn't read positive or negative evaluations. Conversely, she prefers hearing opinions on her films directly from individuals she meets in person.

According to Alia in a recent interview with Komal Nahta, she occasionally skims the headlines of reviews that people email her so she can determine whether or not her movie succeeded.

She continued, "Even when the reviews are good, I don’t read them. I read headlines that people send me sometimes. You generally get a sense of what worked and what didn’t after the film’s release. I ask enough people when I meet them in person for feedback."

The reason Alia doesn't want to read the reviews is because she doesn't appreciate this type of analysis being made "on day one or day 10 of a film."

She proceeded by stating Karan Johar reads movie reviews too closely since he thinks occasionally unique ideas emerge since, once more, it's a viewpoint or input.

Alia also added, "So as long as you keep your ear close to the ground, you will get that feedback. I try and get feedback for every film on what I could have done better and, if the film has worked, then what has worked. If it didn't work, then why not? That I understand."

Alia recently appeared in the Ayan Mukerji-directed movie Brahmastra alongside Ranbir Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, and Mouni Roy. The movie, which debuted in theatres on September 9, is currently enjoying Brahmastra's popularity and favourable positive reception. According to the Indian Express, the movie has earned over Rs 360 crore worldwide.

On the work front, Alia has many upcoming ventures in the works, including her Hollywood debut, Heart of Stone. Gal Gadot and Jamie Dornan also appear in the Netflix flick.

Additionally, Alia will appear in Rocky aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, Karan Johar's upcoming movies. Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan, Shabana Azmi, and Ranveer Singh also appear in the film. She also has Farhan Akhtar's Jee Le Zaraa, in which she co-stars with Priyanka Chopra and Katrina Kaif.
