Since her debut project Student of the Year in 2012, she has delivered laudable performances in films like Highway, 2 States, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, Kapoor and Sons and Udta Punjab.
The 23-year-old says there is an underlying feeling of insecurity in the world of glitz and glamour, with many factors making “you wary about your position”.
Asked about the insecurities that a star has, Alia answered, “I think various things like insecurities of feeling the pressure to perform with each film, the pressure for the film to perform well at the box office, which makes you little wary of the position that you are in, the questions that are always thrown at you that you might not have the answer to, but you are expected to have.” So all those things land (one) up in feeling a bit vulnerable and insecure in any place.”
“I am not a very insecure person, but yes there are times when you feel very vulnerable and I think the only way to deal with it is with the support from your family and friends. Alia further said,“Don’t take yourself seriously”.
“I am a serious worker, but I don’t take myself seriously. And I think that is the best way to do things. “Because the day you start taking yourself way too seriously, then there are too many box of questions that will open up for yourself.”
