‘Promotions are polite way of begging’

Alia Bhatt has been going all out with her Varun Dhawan to spread the right buzz for their forthcoming movie Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. The actress equates promotions to a ‘polite way of begging’.
In an interview, the actor spoke about her hopes from Humpty..., the team's promotional spree for the movie, and her camaraderie with Dhawan.

Are you looking forward to a fourth hit with Humpty...?
Of course I want a fourth hit! It would be amazing to have three hits in one year. It has the scope to reach out to the widest spectrum of the audience because it is a family entertainer. It's been a while since we had a pure romantic film.

Varun tells me that you two have been singing at all the events ?
Yes, and that's taking a toll on me. It's not easy to go on stage and sing in front of large crowds. But I guess it's important to have fun while promoting a film. But by the end of the day, your mind starts playing tricks on you as you are tired going from one event to another. During 2 States the pace and the method of promotion were far less exhausting.

In what way?
It wasn’t a subject that needed to be be promoted in malls and pubs. In fact, I had to keep reminding them to make me do more. Humpty... is relatable to the young. So, Varun and I have to go all-out to reach out. Promoting a film should be a time to go all-out. Even those who don’t have an interest in the film should want to see the film by the time we are done. Promotions are a very polite way of begging.
