Alia Bhatt: People would probably not watch my movies after watching a show on my life

In the time I’ve known Alia Bhatt, she’s come across as sharp, sure and keenly aware of herself. And the girl is all of 23. It’s surprising how little rankles her. And this Diwali, she doesn’t just make a fervent plea for her four-legged friends, who don’t find this season so festive, she explains her Kardashian obsession, too…

Why is it important to have a noise-free Diwali?
Diwali is the festival of lights. It’s about being happy from within and about spreading love and light from within, with your loved ones and your family. Light a candle or a diya, spread colour by wearing bright clothes and rangoli, do a puja, be grateful and thankful for all the good things, but apart from that when you are lighting these noisy crackers, you are taking a very simple and basic right of a living being that does not want to hear these sounds. Diwali goes on for a week to 10 days and crackers are lit during weddings, too. It’s non-stop. Forget what it does to our air, that toh is terrible, but bursting crackers is something these poor animals can’t overcome. They have nowhere to go and can’t even shut their ears with their hands like we can. I have put cotton wool in my cat’s ears and it’s really sad because they get sick.

At least my pets are at home and I can shut the windows for them, but the noise is still deafening! What about animals on the road? And it’s not that I haven’t lit crackers as a kid, but I’d use the noise-free ones like the phooljharis and anaars. Crackers are not good as it adds to pollution and it’s like burning money. Moreover, animals give us so much joy, so why can’t we do the same for them?

You keep saying you love Kim Kardashian and that you would like to do a show like Keeping Up With The Kardashians…
Sometimes, I just speak frivolously and don’t really mean it. People would probably not watch my movies after watching a show on my life! (Laughs) We were chatting one day and I was guessing how much money it would make if we did a show on our lives because the Bhatts are crazy in a sweet way. We are not normal people, we don’t have normal conversations and we don’t lead normal lives.

Kim was recently robbed in Paris. Did that encounter scare you about how unsafe the lives of celebs are?
I felt unnerved when I read about it. We tend to take some things for granted and then reality strikes. It’s scary that something like that can happen. The lesson here is that you never know what can happen when and to who. But luckily, everybody came out unharmed.
