After making a start with out and out commercial film “Student of The Year”, Alia turned to Ali and Abhishek Verman for “Highway” and “2 States” respectively and both the films gave her ample opportunity to prove her versatility.
The roles in both the films were as different as chalk and cheese and the 21-year-old passed with flying colours, thanks to her spontaneity, naturalness and ease in front of the camera.
Talking about the choices she makes, Alia said: “I just don’t want to be a love interest in a film, I should have that equal effect. I don’t want to be just standing over there in one frame I can’t do that. That does not mean I don’t want to do commercial films.”
While pursuing meaty roles, she is equally interested in typical commercial cinema.

“I want to do all the commercial films. I want to work with Rohit Shetty… (Okay with) full comedy and action, but a good role,” Alia told reporters in a group interview.
Alia watches all the films of her competitors.
“Yes, I do watch all the films of my competitors, but not because I am competing with them. I like watching films. I am a moviegoer, so I make it a point to watch all the films.”
After three hits, Alia is busy promoting “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania” (HSKD).
“HSKD is an out and out love story. The last love story was ‘Jab We Met’. There has been many romantic-comedy, but not a typical love story whereas ‘HSDK’ is all an all love story and in a modern way fits in 2014 idea of love rather than what was 15 years ago.”
Directed by Shashank Khaitan, “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania” has Alia romancing Varun Dhawan. It hits the screens July 11.
