Alaya F who is the daughter of Pooja Bedi will soon be making her acting debut with the Bollywood film Jawaani Jaaneman. The young actress will be seen playing Saif Ali Khan and Tabu’s daughter in the quirky drama film. In an exclusive conversation with Bollywood Hungama, Alaya F opened up about her mother, Kartik Aaryan and stalking her ex on social media.
When Alaya was asked the one thing that girls lie about to their boyfriends, she said, “That they don't stalk their exes on Instagram. I think everyone stalks their ex on Instagram. Not in a bad way, but just because of curiosity.”
After Ananya Panday and Sara Ali Khan revealing having a crush on Kartik Aaryan, Alaya too said that she finds him cute. When the actress was asked to name a person with whom she would like to be trapped in a room, she took the name of the Pati Patni Aur Woh actor. “I would like to be trapped in a room with Kartik Aaryan. I would like to know what all this fuss is about. All the girls want to be trapped in a room with him, even I will.”
Talking about her mother Pooja Bedi’s habit of skyping her while in the same house, Alaya said, “I remember my skype started ringing and my mother is calling me. ‘Hi beta can you go and get this. Can you get this from upstairs? How are you?’ And I am like Ma you are sitting one floor above, what you are doing. Yes, my mother skypes me in the same house. My dad doesn’t know how to use skype. So I see his nostrils or something.”
Being the daughter of an actor, Alaya has often being questioned about nepotism. When asked about the advantage and disadvantages of being a celebrity kid, she said, “Advantage is that you have grown up around this. So you are comfortable with the camera. You know to interact with the media and people and how to present yourself. That you learn without being taught. Disadvantage is that it comes with a lot of eyeball. You started getting trolled from a very young age. People form opinions about us very early. But I have a very thick skin, thanks to it.”
Alaya F also had interesting Tinder bios for her contemporaries Sara and Ananya. She said that Sara should have “Bindass” in her bio while Ananya’s would read, “I am so tall, you will struggle to reach me.”
Alaya said that she finds Hrithik Roshan as the sexiest actor. “He is the Greek God. I was watching War and there were men sitting next to me who were hooting and cheering.”
