Alia and Varun can get some tough competition from Hollywood release – Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson. Last year, Disney’s The Jungle Book did very well at Indian box office. The film went on to break many records and collected around Rs 180 crore.

Meanwhile, Alia is proud of her journey in Bollywood so far. Asked about what makes her choose roles as varied as the ones in Student Of The Year and the very recent Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Alia told IANS, “Like the way I don’t dress up for other people, in a similar way, I do different films for myself and not for someone else. I want to do different films for myself and not because of ‘log aise kar rahey hai’
