At the film’s song launch on Tuesday in Delhi, Alia was asked about the stress of promoting the film while pregnant. She replied: “Agar aap fit ho, healthy ho, fine ho toh koi rest lene ki zarurat hai hi nahi. Kaam karna mujhe sukoon deta hai, meri passion hai (If you are fit and healthy, you don’t have to rest during pregnancy. Work gives peace, acting is my passion)”
“It keeps my heart, my soul all alive and charged. Toh main toh matlab 100 saal ki umar tak kaam karungi (I will work until I am 100 years old),” the actor added. She announced her pregnancy news two months after she tied the knot with Ranbir Kapoor.
In addition to traveling to places to promote Darlings, Alia also shot Heart of Stone during her pregnancy for her Hollywood debut. In an interview, she shared how she balanced shooting for an action movie while carrying her first child. “It was my first major English film experience in Hollywood and I had quite a task as I was shooting an action movie for the first time. But I’m also pregnant, so there were so many layers I had to deal with. But they made it so seamless and so easy and so comfortable for me. It’s something I’ll never forget because of how beautiful and how well I was treated,” Alia told Variety.
Alia is now just days away from the release of her first production, Darlings. The Netflix film features her alongside Shefali Shah and Vijay Varma. After this, she will be seen in Brahmastra opposite husband Ranbir. The Ayan Mukerji film also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy. It will be released on September 9.
