Mumbai: Although Karan Johar has graciously decided to have a special screening of ‘Student Of The Year’ (SOTY) Thursday evening for the families of debutants Siddharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan, Alia`s elder half-sister Pooja Bhatt has decided to give it a miss.
Pooja says she would prefer to watch Alia with the audience at a public screening - first day first show.
"I`m going to see it first day first show on Friday. I can`t wait. I do have the option of seeing it the night before. But I`d rather see it with an unprejudiced audience. I`ve watched most of my own films on Friday with the ticket-paying public," she said.
While Pooja is a protective elder sister, her brother Rahul Bhatt is completely disconnected from Alia`s life and career.
Varun`s filmmaker father David Dhawan confesses he and his wife can`t wait to see their son on screen either.
"We are watching the film Thursday night. Can you believe, we haven`t seen a single frame of Varun`s work as yet!" David said.
