Alia Bhatt on facing failure: I felt terrible

Alia Bhatt has made a mark in the industry with her amazing performances. Even her track record at the box office has been quite good. Since 2012, she has been a part of nine films out of which one one has failed to make a mark at the box office. We are talking about ‘Shaandaar’ that failed miserably at the box office. After four hits, it was a flop for Alia.

Recently, while talking to Shah Rukh Khan on ‘Lux Golden Divas – Baatein with the Badshah’, the actress spoke about facing failure. She said, “Touch wood, 90 per cent of my films fared well at the box office. But there has been one failure, and because of that failure, I am more calm… Some strange reason. ‘Shaandaar‘ didn’t work at the box office. I was heartbroken. I could not believe it. I turned to my father. He was the only person I was speaking to and then I went on a Holiday solo to mourn the loss.”

“I felt terrible, but after that I felt ‘ho gaya’ (it’s done). The bandage has been ripped. I have faced my first failure, and I will be ready for whatever comes. Getting up after the failure is very different. My father sent me this poster with Frank Sinatra’s quote ‘The best revenge is massive success’,” the actress added.
