Nothing better than two women applauding each other.

Bollywood superstar Alia Bhatt, while promoting her upcoming film, Kalank, said that she took inspiration from Sanam Saeed’s character Kashf in Zindagi Gulzar Hai to prepare for her role in the film.

“Abhishek [the director] asked me to watch Zindagi Gulzar Hai,” Alia said in the interview, adding, “The character of Kashaf 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. Abhishek kept saying that I should be irritating.”

Sanam Saeed responded to Alia’s comments on Twitter, saying:

Kalank, a pre-partition drama, also starring Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sonakshi Sinha, is set to release on April 17.
