Mom-to-be Alia Bhatt says her baby ‘relentlessly kicked’ during her award acceptance speech – Times of India

Alia Bhatt was recently honoured with a prestigious award in Singapore. The actress who’s currently expecting her first child, delivered an inspiring speech and also talked about her unborn baby, who ‘kicked relentlessly’ throughout her speech.

In her speech, Alia started by revealing that she was feeling a ‘tiny bit of pressure’ to say something intelligent. “I think 10 years ago when I started working, all I thought about was how I would one day take over the world. How everyone, everywhere would know who I am and how hardworking and talented and intelligent and bright and flawless I am. I wanted to be perfect and I wanted the world to know it.”

She also opened up about what she isn’t good at and what she can feel proud of. “Tonight, I want to take a moment with you all to celebrate my flaws along with my strengths. For example, I’m terrible at spelling. Like, really bad. But I do know what to say to someone who’s vulnerable. I have no sense of geography. Zero. I do not get directions. But I have a deep sense of respect and regard for different cultures. My general knowledge is widely known to be weak. But my emotional intelligence is something that I’ve worked really hard to cultivate. I have a tendency to be hard on myself with regards to my weight and my appearance. But I never say no to a French fries because, you know, YOLO (You only live once).”

On a closing note, Alia thanked all of her family members. “Thank you to you all for patiently listening to me. Thank you to my team, for constantly being there for me. Thank you to my family; my mom (Soni Razdan) for bringing me on to this planet; my father (Mahesh Bhatt); my sister Shaheen Bhatt, who has helped put my talks into words; my husband Ranbir Kapoor. I need to give them separate awards for putting up with me on a daily basis,” she joked.

She then finally mentioned about her little one. “And lastly, when it comes to making an impact, I hope I can continue to do so in whatever way possible. But for now, tonight, this award has genuinely made an impact on me—me and my little one, who has relentlessly kicked me throughout this speech. Thank you so much.”

Meanwhile on the work front, Alia is currently basking in the success of her recently released film ‘Brahmastra’. The film went on to make 300 crore within 3 weeks of its release. She was seen sharing screen space with husband Ranbir Kapoor in the film. Helmed by Ayan Mukerji, the film also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy and Nagarjuna Akkineni in pivotal roles and had a cameo by Shah Rukh Khan.
