New Delhi: She may have made her debut as awell-heeled student in 'Student of the Year', but Alia Bhatt says she is not brand conscious in real life and does not like splurging on pricey clothes.
The 24-year-old actress, who was recently in the capital for a fashion show, says she would wear something that compliments her than buy expensive clothes she might not wear again.
"I'm not brand conscious, when you talk about clothes. But when it comes to my shoes and bags, I'm brand conscious because you need them to last long as they are used on a daily basis.
"I can wear something right from Colaba Causeway store to a Gucci label in my wardrobe. It all depends on what will look good on me. I don't like wasting money on expensive outfits which I might not wear again. I'd rather mix and match," Alia told PTI.
When asked about her recent film opposite Varun Dhawan being criticised for being regressive, the actress says she welcomes criticism and cannot ask people to think differently.
"I'm not somebody who is averse to criticism. I welcome all kinds of critique. But honestly, the film has been loved unanimously.
"There will always be some people who will say something different from what you think about the film. But that's their take. I'm not going to tell them what they should feel. But majority has loved the film and that's what matters."
Alia has two films, 'Dragon' with Ranbir Kapoor and 'Gully Boy' with Ranveer Singh, lined up for release this year....
