At that moment, her co-star Shahid Kapoor came to her rescue and replied, "You should not to judge the film just by watching the trailer. We request you to make comments after watching the whole two-hour film. You should see how a glamorous looking Alia did a non-glamorous role. She must have seen something in it (the role) and only then said yes."
