Mumbai: Actress Alia Bhatt says filmmaker Karan Johar, who directed her debut movie Student Of The Year (SOTY), is the reason why she is now a fashion-conscious girl.
"Alia was not fashion conscious before she met Karan Johar. After meeting him, she became fashion conscious," the 19-year-old said here Thursday at the unveiling of the cover page of fashion magazine Grazia. The cover featured her.
Meanwhile, Alia, who had recently gone for the Marrakech International Film Festival, where SOTY was screened, says she was honoured to be there.
"It was a lot of fun actually. Being at the Marrakech film fest just made me feel how lucky I was to be on that podium with so many big stars of our country," said Alia, who was accompanied by her co-stars Varun Dhawan and Siddharth Malhotra at the movie extravaganza.
Alia further said she was shocked to see the kind of popularity that Bollywood has there.
"It was actually very shocking for us to know how famous Bollywood is internationally. They all were screaming, 'Karan, we love you, Shah Rukh love you'! They were just going mad. I mean they are so big internationally, but it was just that we didn't know that our films are so out there even in Marrakech in Morocco," Alia said.
Alia's future project includes "2 states", opposite Arjun Kapoor.
