Directed by Vikas Bahl, 'Shaandaar' is a romantic-comedy featuring Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles and at the end of the film's trailer, Alia is seen donning a pink bikini.

"We (Shahid and I) both were training...he was training just for his usual self, as he likes to stay fit. I was training hard for that bikini shot. I was on diet...was focused about getting it right. It was not an elaborate shot, but I worked so hard," Alia told reporters here at the trailer launch of Shaandaar.

Director Vikas Bahl said the bikini scene was shot on the "coldest day" and Alia was ready with a pair of pants to put it on soon after the shot.

Alia reveals it is because of Shahid that she got to do two of her upcoming films -- 'Shaandaar' and 'Udta Punjab' with him.

'The Student of the Year' actress was also thankful to her mentor Karan Johan, who launched her into filmdom and is also producing 'Shaandaar'.

"Karan started this journey...he has an important role in it. I chose to do different kind of roles. I believe variety is the spice of life. I am grateful to everyone for giving me an opportunity to choose and do different characters on screen. It is a conscious decision," Alia said.

In Shaandaar, the actress plays the role of a free spirited girl named after herself-- Alia. "Alia and Alia both are mad. With this film I got to explore funny, quirky side of me. Alia in Shaandaar is intelligent," she added.

The film is set to release on October 22.

    in india there is code of conduct for both men and women. dressing like this is not allowed here as per indian law.. when an actress complains of molestation does she ever see what she is wearing or behaving. if the rapsits and molestors are wrong even girls who don't know the indian code of conduct must be penalised and jailed. in india u have to live by indian culture whether u are a man or woman. that's muslim country can u argue with their culture or clothing..

    Could you please explain the following? What is India's Code of Conduct? Should we go by the Kamasutra or the sculptures of Ajanta? You're nothing but a hypocrite. There's nothing wrong about the human body, it's the way you look at it, so the dirt is in YOUR mind. We were born naked and only man can make such a natural thing into a dirty word. So crawl back into the cave you've come from while the rest of us get on with life. And for the LAST time. Rape is not the victim's fault! Idiot.
