Mumbai: Alia Bhatt will be seen sans make-up in her second film `Highway` and she says it was like a blessing for her.

"I didn`t really have any problem shooting without make-up. In fact, there was no stress about touch-up, the more crumpled the clothes, the better it was," the 20-year-old said here Tuesday in an interview.

"So the dirtier I looked in appearance, the better it was. So I didn`t have to think much and that was actually very comfortable," she added.

While shooting, one-film-old Alia had a few moments when she crossed her own expectations.

"There were couple of moments where I surprised myself. But they were more physical strength moments, not really acting as such. I felt I was very weak in terms of pushing myself but I managed to do it," Alia said.

The actress has even sung a song in the film.

Directed by Imtiaz Ali, `Highway` stars Randeep Hooda opposite Alia and it will hit theatres Feb 21.
