Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], April 8 (ANI): Gracing the stage for the masterclass of a prestigious institute in the city, actress Alia Bhatt boosted the confidence of the students by encouraging them to embrace their failures in life. The roaring applause filled the auditorium at Whistling Woods International (WWI), when alumni actor-director Shashank Khaitan, actor Sahil Vaid along with Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt graced the stage for the masterclass. Suggesting students how to dealing with failure, Alia said, "Give failures a big hug because to appreciate sunshine, you have to face rains. After all, we only see rainbows after the rains. The joy is in falling, picking yourself up again and charging ahead." The masterclass witnessed all the three actors and the director sharing great insights about filmmaking and acting. While Varun Dhawan revealed his process to tackle a challenging character like Raghu from 'Badlapur,', however, 25-year-old actor revealed how she makes the decision to select a script. Addressing the students, Shashank Khaitan said, "Never consider yourself to be a struggler. I have never considered myself to be a struggler because I am constantly learning. You can only be a struggler if you are not engaged in learning something new every day." Sharing acting tips with the students, the 'Dishoom' star said, "Never curb yourself. Let people think you are mad and crazy. This is one advice that I have received from most of the actors in the industry." The students congratulated the team on the success of the movie and thanked them for such an informative session. (ANI)
