  • Post her debut film Student Of The Year Alia will next be seen in Imtiaz Ali's Highway, Karan Johar's 2 States and a film with Varun Dhawan.
  • "I don't have much acting experience. I am not a star. I am learning... there is a long way to go. As of now I am dependent on my directors," she said.
