MUMBAI — Alia Bhatt will be seen donning a nose ring for the first time in “Udta Punjab.” Also for the first time, Bhatt will be appearing in a hardcore desi avatar.

The actress is playing the role of a Bihari migrant who was a one-time hockey player. Her role has the back-story of a young girl who is forced to work in the fields after her father’s death in Punjab, but she has a few dreams for herself.

Balaji Motion Pictures and Phantom co-produce the film directed by Abhishek Chaubey, which is all set to hit theaters June 17. Kareena Kapoor Khan, Shahid Kapoor and Diljit Dosanjh co-star.
