The Raazi actor, who plays the role of Sita,  revealed how a chance encounter at an airport with Rajamouli ended up making her a part of RRR.

“When I met him at the airport, I went up to him and said, ‘Sir! I want to work with you. I will do anything, just give me a part in your film.’ I just wanted to work with him,” she said during the trailer of the film .

The trailer was released in Mumbai in the presence of fans and media. The filmmaker, along with Jr NTR, Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt, was present at the launch. Ram Charan had to miss the event due to family engagements.

Alia further says that co-incidentally, Rajamouli was looking for someone as Sita in RRR and after a few online meetings to firm up the deal, Alia finally went to Hyderabad and formally signed on for the film.

“I was willing to do even a walk on part in Rajamouli sir’s film because I wanted to be a part of his vision and his cinema,” she said.

Talking about her experience of working on the film, Alia added, “I was excited and nervous when I was offered the role of Sita. I was more nervous because of the language, I had to learn the lines by heart, I wanted to make sure I said those lines well and took proper pauses and more.

“But once I was on set, Rajamouli sir had kept everything ready and made it very smooth for me. By the end of it, I was sad that it is over, but hopefully there will be more films with him in the future,” said the actor who learnt Telugu so that she could deliver her lines rather than dubbing her voice.

Alia will also be seen playing the titular character in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’.
