Too young to judge a show, says Alia Bhatt
Mumbai: Actress Alia Bhatt says as a viewer she likes reality shows, but feels she is too young to judge them as of now.
“I don’t think judging is something I can do now as I am too young, I am still learning it. I can’t judge but creatively I will be part of singing and music stuff (shows),” Alia told PTI in an exclusive interview here.
“Whenever the time is right I would do it. When I am not doing films and have time, then may be I can do reality shows. But I also think I need to explore the singing space to be on a show and judge someone,” she said.
Alia along with filmmaker Karan Johar will now be seen as co-curators of Viacom18’s English entertainment channel ‘Colors Infinity’.
When asked if she would be doing a show for the channel in near future, Alia said, “Not right now, but never say never, let’s see. For me reality television is something I get hooked on to…like “Bigg Boss”. I get attracted to it. So doing something like that will be a great idea on Colors Infinity.”
Alia says people are wise enough to chose what they like to see and there are particular slots for bold shows.
“I think there is a particular time slot for that. We all are wise enough to make our choices. There are some shows that will be very interesting for the children to see, like the superhero show and other shows,” she said.
Alia and Karan have curated shows for the channel that span across genres like drama, superheroes, comedy, fantasy, crime and thrillers.
“Not often in life you get to be on the creative panel of such a large medium like television. So I believe me being very young is a demerit as people say she is so young what does she know,” the actress said.
“After a long time a youth representative has helped as being the co-curator and bringing the insights of what youth want. I am the kind of representative of what the youngsters want to watch,” she said.
Alia feels television is a huge medium, but due to her busy schedule she doesn’t get time to catch up on the shows.
“I travel most of the time and so I don’t get time to catch up on TV. I feel through ‘Color Infinity’ you get to watch not one but three back-to-back episodes,” she said.
“All the content that you missed you get to see. There are re-runs. So it is quite feasible for those who are travelling. Also there are lots of different types of shows,” she said.
