The Shaandaar actor revealed that she was inspired by the singer who died at an early age.

If there is one singer that greatly inspires Alia Bhatt, it is none other than our very own Nazia Hassan!

The Bollywood starlet revealed that if she will do a biopic, she will choose to play Nazia, who won hearts all over the world with her hit single 'Aap Jaisa Koi', reported The Indian Express

“I did not think much about it but I think I should do it now. I would love to do a biopic on Pakistani pop sensation Nazia Hassan who died very early in her age. She was a singer and I am a singer too, so it will be interesting,” she said.

Nazia's song 'Aap Jaisa Koi', which she sang at the age of 15 for the Indian film Qurbani (1980), became one of the biggest hits in Bollywood film music and Nazia went on to become the first Pakistani to win a Filmfare award. To this day, she is the youngest recipient of the award in the Best Female Playback Singer category.

With speculations that Vidya Balan may be roped in to play slain leader Benazir Bhutto, it is possible that young Alia's wish may be fulfilled, but whether she will get her chance in Lollywood or Bollywood remains to be seen.

As B-town gears for multiple biopics on Dhoni, Azhar, Dangal and Rani Laxmibai, our industry is not far behind as two biopics Shah and Manto have already been released and Mah-e-Meer is on its way to hit screens this year.

Alia will be soon seen in Shaandaar alongside Shahid Kapoor, which is slated to be released on October 22.
