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 told PTI. Alia was nervous before shooting for 'Highway', an intense road movie, as 'Student Of The Year' was a light hearted film. She says her 'Highway' co-star Randeep Hooda helped her. "He is a great actor and helped me a lot, he made me feel comfortable.
Though he is senior, he is as young as I am. It is just a perception that he is older. Rather, there were times when I was acting older and saying don't do this or that," she said.
Alia, who would be seen opposite Arjun Kapoor in '2 States', finds him extremely supportive. "He is a great actor, I loved him in 'Ishaqzaade'. He is an amazing person.
He helped me in preparing for the role," the actress said who plays a South Indian girl in the film. The actress, who is also the ambassador of cosmetic brand Maybelline, feels it's good to be trendy. "Fashion is important for all... It is the way of depicting yourself. People should groom themselves," she said.
