Alia Bhatt is all set to make her Hollywood debut in ‘Heart of Stone’, the trailer of which dropped late on Saturday night. The actress was in Sao Paulo, Brazil for the Tudum event along with co-stars Gal Gadot and Jamie Dornan. The trio unveiled the film’s trailer together. While most fans were elated to see Alia playing the main antagonist, they could not help but notice the limited screen time in the trailer.
During the red carpet of the event, Alia addressed the same concerns and mentioned how she’s not worried about it. Speaking to Mid-Day, she said, “Woh toh hoga hi (That will happen),” Alia further stated that not too worried about that “because I feel at the end of the day you have to get a sense of what the story is about and how the story leads you to the final film. That’s all that matters.”
The trailer has Gal Gadot playing Rachel Stone, a member of the Charter, and shows how the secret agency takes over ‘when governments fail’. They have ‘the most highly trained agents’ and ‘no political leanings’ or any ‘national allegiances’. The Charter works together to maintain peace in a turbulent world. In the trailer, everyone is seen chasing after a MacGuffin called ‘the Heart’, which gives the Charter its ‘power’. However, Alia’s character steals the Heart and challenges Rachel by saying, “Now you answer to me.”
In an earlier interview with Variety, Alia had talked about the project, and said, “It was my first Hollywood big English picture experience and I had quite a task at hand because I was shooting for the first time an action movie. But I’m also pregnant so there were so many layers for me to deal with. But they made it so seamless and so easy and so comfortable for me. It’s something that I will never forget because of how beautifully and how well I was treated.”
Directed by Tom Harper, ‘Heart of Stone’ also stars Matthias Schweighöfer, Jing Lusi and Paul Ready. It will debut on Netflix on August 11.
