With less than four days remaining for Heart of Stone’s release, the team of this upcoming movie is leaving no stone unturned to promote it in a grandeur manner. From conducting numerous virtual interviews with publications to thronging social media platforms with the stills, this movie is touted to be one of Alia Bhatt’s most promising projects.

Today, in an interview with Hindustan Times, Bollywood superstar Alia Bhatt expressed what her character in the action-spy movie will be like. For those who don’t know, 30-year-old Alia will be playing the role of Keya Dhawan –an antagonist – in the digital movie.

Speaking to the news portal, Alia said, “I think there is a lot of purpose and dedication in being the bad guy in the movie because, to me, I’m not the bad guy. I think (as Keya) that I’m the right guy. Keya’s purpose, passion, and need for the want of a Heart has a purpose and has a heart. She (Keya) believes in it. Keya feels she is not the bad guy.”

“As an actor, if you fully commit to that moment, it is like displaying a character with clarity and focus. There are in-between moments where she (Keya) is being sassy and a bit heavy-handed with sarcasm which is fun, great, and built into the writing. It’s a first (Hollywood project) for me. I really had fun juicing those moments,” Alia wraps up.
