But just because I’m privileged, doesn’t mean that I’m not going to do what I love and work hard at it.”

Alaya spoke on her openness and readiness to face the spotlight after learning from the experiences of others in the industry. The rising star spoke about mistakes and contingency planning.

She revealed during the interview, “Sara, Ananya (Panday), Tara (Sutaria), Janhvi (Kapoor), among others, are all extremely talented in different ways and together we’ve so much to offer. I respect everyone and have watched all their interviews several times to learn from their mistakes and take a note of their good points. I’ve also learnt to see them in the limelight.”

She showcased her desire to work alongside a large number of stars in the industry, from Ayushmann Khurrana to Kartik Aaryan and Varun Dhawan. The star was also open in revealing that although she looks up to stars’ like Priyanka Chopra, Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone, she wishes to blaze her own trail, hoping someone might want to follow in her footsteps one day.

Kangana Ranaut had sang praises for Deepika Padukone earlier but their political views don’t seem to be aligned. 

The Queen actor expressed her displeasure with the Padmaavat star after her recent visit to the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) where she expressed solidarity with the students.

During an interview with Spotboye, Kangana said: “I think she’s exercising her democratic right which she can. She very well knows what she’s doing. I shouldn’t have an opinion about what she’s doing. It will not be appropriate for me to say she should have done this or that. I can say what I want to do.”

“I definitely won’t go and stand behind Tukde Gang (laughing) for whatever happens. I don’t want to support anyone who divides this nation. I don’t want to give power or empower people in the Nation who celebrate when a Jawan dies. I don’t want to be with them. So, I can tell what I want but I don’t want to comment on what she should’ve done,” she added.
