Recently, Kalank actor Alia Bhatt got candid about how she prepared for her character in the film. According to reports, Alia Bhatt’s character ‘Roop’ required Alia to adopt a more graceful body language and polish her Urdu for which she watched a lot of old films. One particular Pakistani show, recommended to her by director Abhishek Verman, called Zindagi Gulzar Hai was a great source of inspiration for Alia Bhatt’s character.

I watched a lot of old films like Mughal-E-Azam and Umrao Jaan to get an understanding of grace and body language. (And) I had to clean my Hindi as I am speaking Urdu (in the film). Abhishek asked me to watch Zindagi Gulzar Hai. The character of the girl in the show is very much how 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.
