Today is Day 1 of Sadak 2. And that's my father, now also my director, holding the clap. I begin shoot in a few days and honestly, I’m petrified. I feel like a tiny mouse trying to climb a beautiful, immense, emotional mountain. I hope I make it to the top and if I fall I hope I’m able to get up again. It’s a tough climb but from everything I’ve seen and everything I’ve heard, I know every single step and misstep will be worth it! Here's to movies, family, dreams and starting out on a brand NEW journey! And what a journey it’s going to be!!!! 🌟🙏🌞
This is not the first time Alia will be working on screen with a family member. Last year, she starred with her mother Soni Razdan in Raazi which depicted a perfect mother-daughter relationship on screen.However, on finally working with her father, she explained, “Working with family is amazing. The whole vibe is that of fun and excitement. The character I am playing is both different and difficult. A lot of effort is required. Also my father is so emotionally charged and high all the time that it’s another experience altogether. Initially, I was a little nervous but now I am in the flow, enjoying every bit of the journey and more excited to see this film release. Once the release date nears, I’ll be nervous again.”Apart from Sadak 2, Alia is gearing up for the release of Brahmastra opposite beau Ranbir Kapoor. She is also working with Baahubali director SS Rajamouli for his next film, RRR. Speaking of signing RRR, she concluded, “The moment I heard that Rajamouli is working on his next film, I knew I have to work with him. He was quite surprised and told me that he was also thinking of working with me and that I would have got a call from him anyway. It was little random at that time but then later we met and everything fell in place.”
