By Subhash K Jha Secretly, and without fuss, Karan Johar's pretty protegee Alia Bhatt's mother actress-filmmaker Soni Razdan has scripted a film that she will direct soon after Student Of The Year is released.
At the moment Soni is evasive about her plans for making a film with Alia, `It will happen when it happens. Let her make her debut in Karan's film. She couldn't have hoped for a better launch. `
Pretty and young and pretty young Alia Bhatt's mom Soni Razdan put her own directorial project on hold to ensure a smooth passage into purported stardom for her daughter.
Soni set aside her own directorial plans to devote herself to the process of making Alia's debut in Student Of The Year as comfortable as possible.
Says Soni, `The last year I was with her on the outdoor location because I think initially while she found her bearings in the film industry she needed me around.
But now I think Alia is fairly confident of herself. I can now go back to writing my film. When Karan Johar spotted her in school and signed her she was just a child at 17. Now at 19 she knows her mind. I don't think she'd need me to be around.
I never needed anyone when I became an actress. I ran off to England on my own. It's a different world today. Girls are no longer that safe on their own. `
