Actor Alia Bhatt, who hit the big screen with film Student of the Year in 2012, has now expressed a desire to join the ranks of famous Bollywood superstars such as Kajol, Madhuri and Katrina by acting in a Yash Raj film, according to the Deccan Chronicle.

At the store launch of Diva’ni, a Bollywood inspired fashion line presented by Yash Raj Films which serves as the first of its kind, Alia spoke about the store’s collection and her own wish to be a part of the Yash Raj industry. “Everyone aspires to be a Yash Raj heroine. I would love to be a Yash Raj heroine…I haven’t reached there but hopefully I will one day,” she said.

The aim of the store Diva’ni, a collaborative effort of the Yash Raj production house with famous sari brand Karol Bagh Saree House (KBSH), is to reflect how the late Yash Chopra portrayed the leading ladies in his films, who were a major force in the fashion industry in terms of fan following.

“The whole point of this collection was how Yashji would display all his heroines so it has fusion of romance, elegance, glamour and all of that. Whatever outfit I like I will pick that up,” Alia said when speaking about the line.

The 21-year-old star is excited about the release of her upcoming movie Humpty Sharma ki Dhulania with co-star Varun Dhawan, which reportedly pays a tribute to India’s most famous cinematic love stories. “It is not straight out from Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge,” Alia commented on her next release. “We are paying a tribute to all major love stories. When we talk about love stories, the first thing that comes to our mind is DDLJ, it was an epic love story. It is a filmy love story.”
