MissMalini and Alaya F had a quick, fun chat about her first-ever Bollywood movie, Jawani Jaaneman, but the conversation went so far beyond that! If you think playing a pregnant teen named Tia so close to her own personality was easy for her, it wasn’t! And she had some fun stories (that included farting! haha) to prove it. Watch the video to see why the fact that she was instructed to “just be herself” was much harder than it sounded!
Although this movie saw her in a lead role, her film dreams did not at first include being in front of the camera! She shared that she got into acting after she studied film at NYU and realised that she loved acting way more than what she went there to study! Hey, don’t blame us for not giving you all the deets, coz we want you to watch the video!
Finally, one of the biggest points of their conversation was about Alaya’s mum, Pooja Bedi. Alaya talked about her open and positive relationship with her mom, even though they argue a lot and she had the best tip for mothers of young teenage girls! We know, we know, we’re doing it again.
P.S: Alaya also answered questions from our Malini’s Girl Tribe members about her career dreams had it not been for Bollywood, social causes she loves to support, her biggest inspirations and more. Now go, watch!
