Actress Alia Bhatt has carved a niche for herself in the industry in quite a less time. Post her commendable performances in movies like ‘Udta Punjab’ and ‘Highway’, she is currently termed as one of the leading actresses in Bollywood.

In fact, not just acting, the bubbly actress has also won accolades for her singing talent as well.

However, despite being the daughter of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, Alia feels she can never wear the director's hat for any project.

Alia feels that she can plunge into the filmmaking business as a producer, but never as a director.

“Maybe I can produce (films) one day, but I don't think I can ever be a director because being a director takes a lot. I don't think I have that capability,” Alia told IANS over phone from Mumbai.

Since her debut project "Student of the Year" in 2012, she has delivered laudable performances in films like "Highway", "2 States", "Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania", "Kapoor and Sons" and "Udta Punjab". Her only setback was last year's "Shaandaar".

Asked if she takes any guidance from her family, she said: "While making the film no advice comes from my parents. All advice comes from my director."

The actress will next be seen in director Gauri Shinde's upcoming "Dear Zindagi" alongside superstar Shah Rukh Khan. The film will release on November 25.
