"Touch wood, 90 per cent of my films fared well at the box office. But there have been one failure, and because of that failure, I am more calm... Some strange reason. 'Shaandaar' didn't work at the box office. I was heartbroken. I could not believe it," Alia said.
"I turned to my father. He was the only person I was speaking to and then I went on a holiday solo to mourn the loss. I felt terrible, but after that I felt 'ho gaya' (it's done). The bandage has been ripped. I have faced my first failure, and I will be ready for whatever comes. Getting up after the failure is very different. My father sent me this poster with Frank Sinatra's quote 'The best revenge is massive success'." she added.
The actress has given some amazing performances in films like Highway, 2 states, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Kapoor and Sons. Till date, Shaandaar has only turned out to be a damp squib at the box office.
At present, Raazi is scheduled to release on May 11, 2018.
