"It is my dream to work in a film directed by my papa (Mahesh Bhatt) but he is not directing any film these days and therefore, I feel, I have to look for some other dream," Alia told reporters.
Answering a question, the actor said she did not debut in a movie directed by her father in order to prove that she is capable of acting and is a hard worker.
"Otherwise people would have said that she is not hard working," Alia said.
Arjun Kapoor, Alia's co-star in upcoming film '2 States' said he is impressed by actress Kareena Kapoor and actor Anil Kapoor.
When he was asked about the ongoing Lok Sabha polls, Arjun said people should vote compulsorily and hoped that the new government would take the nation towards progress.
