GOING HOME is special for Alia

After making it to the headlines for acting in her own spoof ‘Genius Of The Year’ which went viral on the internet a few weeks back, actress Alia Bhatt has done it again. This time the ‘Highway’ actress is seen in a short film titled ‘Going Home’ which is based on women’s safety, which has gone viral on social networking site. What’s more, the actress says that the film is close to her!

The video was put online on YouTube on October 17, accompanied by a post from its director Vikas Bahl. The filmmaker’s post read, “I pledge to create a short film titled ‘Going Home’, in which we visualise a utopia for women, where, unlike today, mistrust and fear don’t dictate actions and decisions.”

Interestingly, this latest video is made by ‘Queen’ director VikasBahl. The video portrays a sort of utopian world for the young Indian woman, where she doesn’t have to worry about travelling during odd hours of the night, dressing the way she wants and approaching a car full of unknown men for help.

In the short five minute film, Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt is shown driving home by herself late at night on a secluded road. The protagonist assures her worried mother that she’ll be home soon, as she comes across some car trouble and is stranded with no help in sight, except for a car full of men who can’t help but stare at her.

What’s more, the car approaches cautiously; however, Alia Bhatt without any inhibitions jumps out of the car and explains her situation. The men get out and examine the vehicle. But in a strange turn of events, though the men are obviously charmed by the beautiful Alia dressed in the tight leather skirt, the men are absolutely chivalrous and drop her safely to her gate.

According to reports, this latest video has gone viral, with various people sharing it on social media. In fact Alia herself shared the video on Twitter saying, “Wohooo !!! #GoingHome top trend on Facebook 😀 this was a really special short film.. THANK YOU !!!!Loveeeee.”
