Even in a short filmography so far, Alia Bhatt has shown versatility in picking up scripts and the actress says it was her desire to surprise the audience again that made her sign 'Udta Punjab'.
The 23-year-old actress, who has impressed fans with performances in 'Highway' and '2 States', says she has always intended to do roles that people can't imagine her in and character of tough Bihari migrant in 'Udta Punjab' is exactly that.
"What attracted me to the film was that no one would really imagine me playing this character and I found that challenging and interesting. I was very happy that here's a role which has no glimpse of it in my previous roles. Also, the story is very important," Alia told PTI.
