Alia Bhatt says she didn't work with Udta Punjab to win a National Film Award.

Actress Alia Bhatt who gave a brilliant performance in the film, ' Udta Punjab' in which she essays a role of a Bihari migrant girl , says the film was not with an intention of winning a National Awards but to deal with the issue of abuse in Punjab. She said not winning in the National Award was perfectly fine with her, she was more keen on the audience accepting the film and it was a film that was well received by the public.


When the film released it got a lot of appreciation and recognition from all quarters of people though the prestigious National Award would have been a great step to her career, but the fact is the film did well and she achieved what she wanted to in her career with a power packed performance in the film that people took notice of.


Udta Punjab had a star cast of Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor and Diljit Donsanjh besides her in the key roles and that gained a lot of popularity. Though the star cast was a popular one Alia Bhatt expressed that the film hasn't given her a sense of fulfilment in her career yet and says there is a lot more to achieve .
