Speaking about her role in Heart of Stone, Alia Bhatt shared, “What’s amazing is how the narrative throughout the world is changing. I’ve experienced that even back in India, where I headlined this film called Gangubai, which did really well in theatres and on Netflix all over the world. And this was a film that was headlined by a woman. We come from a certain school of thinking that a woman-led film in an action franchise won’t do very well. But I think Gal shattered that myth when she did Wonder Woman. Because at the end of the day, it’s all about the characters and what you’re putting out there. So, similarly to HEART OF STONE, when we met and chatted about it, she said, “You don’t really see a spy thriller action franchise that is led by women, so I wanted to start something on my own.” I love that thought. It was so unique, relevant and current”.
