Alia Bhatt has come a long way with hit films like “Highway”, “2 States” and her recent release “Udta Punjab”. The actress says she wants to work around the globe and hopes “Hollywood” turns out to be her next destination.

From veteran actors like Shashi Kapoor, Kabir Bedi, Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Anil Kapoor and Lillete Dubey to names like Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur, Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone — Indian actors have made their mark in foreign filmdom.

And Alia also hopes to follow suit.

“I want to do films all over. Well, London is my next destination because I am going there for a holiday but then hopefully, Hollywood will be my next destination soon,” Alia said.

Alia is riding high on success of her film “Udta Punjab” – in which she is seen essaying character of a Bihari immigrant stuck in the nexus of drugs in Punjab.

The daughter of veteran filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt has a packed schedule. “Udta Punjab” marks her second release this year after “Kapoor & Sons”.

She has films like “Shhuddhi”, “Badrinath Ki Dulhania” and director Gauri Shinde’s untitled film in her kitty as well.

Asked if finding a balance between personal and professional life is tough, Alia said it is “difficult”.

“It is all work and very little play but I do try to take out time for myself like now I have managed to take time out and go for a holiday,” she said.

“Udta Punjab”, which also stars Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh, is based on drug abuse in Punjab. It came out on June 17.
