Looks like the mixed dosage of fame, success and acclaim has made Alia Bhatt too big for her boots. The actress, who is undoubtedly one of the best from the younger lot, recently put a tight noose on one of the leading brands she apparently endorses. Recently, while shooting for a commercial, the Udta Punjab actordemanded that the commercial featuring her should be shot by a well-known director.
According to a source, Alia was approached to be the brand ambassador of a particular brand. After taking her time, the actress agreed, however, she requested the agency to bring a known name on board. Amidst the discussion, Shashank Khaitan’s name popped up and Alia’s team conveyed the agency to have a word with Shashank. The agency was initially skeptical to collaborate with Shashank as he quoted a whopping sum, which could have derailed the entire budget of the shoot.
But, an adamant Alia didn’t flinch until her requisites were well taken care of up and strictly asked the agency to get Shashank for calling the shots. Left with no choice, the ad agency finally gave in and had to take Shashank for the shoot. It is noteworthy that Shashank had earlier directed Alia in two of his films, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhania.
