In an in interview to a leading daily, the actress clarifies that she is not competing with anyone. “I’ll neither undervalue nor overvalue myself because there’s a certain arrogance that comes along with it. Sometimes you do it for the right reasons, sometimes you don’t,” she said.

When asked about her views on pay parity wherein despite delivering several hits, actresses are not paid at par with their male contemporaries. In fact, Sonam Kapoor had gone on record to state that Veere Di Wedding wasn’t issued as huge a budget as Varun Dhawan and John Abraham’s Dishoom, to which Alia explained, “Investing money in a film is directly co-related to the people you are bringing to the theatre. I’m not delusional that the same number of viewers who go to watch Varun’s movies will come to see my work. He has a wider reach than me. That’s why I can’t expect that the same amount of money, which is invested in his solo-starrers, is invested in mine, too. Also, it’s the subject that makes a film viable. We can’t be categorical about everything because every actor and movie is different.”

Alia also goes on to admit that her emotional attachment to her work is greater than monetary one. “I won’t let go of a movie that I like because of remuneration. I’ll find a way around it. I’ll still do it because the emotional attachment to my work is way more than the monetary one.”
