Your boyfriend leaves his phone unlocked; what's the first thing you spy on? With this question, you'd think you have stumped Alia Bhatt, but boy can she outwit you. "I know the password to my boyfriend's phone," she responds, matter-of-factly. The 23-year-old also makes no bones about her favourite sex position - "the classic missionary", since she is "a simple person". The Udta Punjab actress has fielded tricky posers with rare, disarming candour in an interview with Vogue India for its February 2017 issue, excerpts of which are with hitlist.

Alia's innocence shines through as she exclaims she would take a selfie as she lands on Mars, and on being asked if she ever stole a prop during shoot, she says, "I asked for a pillow that I really liked from an ad film set. It's still in my room." Of course, that doesn't count as stealing.

She reserves wry humour for questions that deserve smart, tongue-in-cheek answers: One thing you would tell US Prez Donald Trump if you meet him? "I'd build a wall so I don't have to talk to him". Alia also confesses she would prefer dating a 50-year-old to an 18-year-old if they were the last living males on earth, because she doesn't get along with younger guys. Incidentally, it is the 50-year-old - well, almost 50 - Akshay Kumar that she considers the most genuine person in Bollywood.

Rumoured to be in an off-on (currently on) relationship with Student Of The Year co-star Sidharth Malhotra, Alia feels Bruno Mars' Just The Way You Are best describes her last relationship. She also reveals she would like to spy on Hollywood hearthrob Ryan Gosling if she was blessed with the power of invisibility for a day, and swap lives with fashion model Gigi Hadid for 24 hours.

The actress shares learning how to cook has been on her perennial to-do list and that she wants to master aloo fry, a family dish. "My dad's mother taught it to my mom and it has always been our family favourite. I remember one day my father ate so much aloo fry that he said, 'Okay, I can die tomorrow'. It's that precious to all of us."
