Alia, the brand ambassador of Maybelline, says she is having the best time shooting for both the movies.
“I am working on 2 films – ‘Highway’ and ’2 States’. ‘Highway’ is releasing on Dec 13 and ’2 States’ will release next year in April. But I am having the best time shooting (for the films),” the 20-year-old said here Thursday at the launch of Maybelline babylips kiss song.
“In fact, I have just wrapped up the schedule of ’2 states’ and came back last night. I had the greatest time and I am going to shoot ‘Highway’ now. I can’t wait for you all to see them,” she added.
Apart from Maybeline, Alia also endorses Coca-Cola along with her “Student Of The Year” co-stars Varun Dhawan and Siddharth Malhotra, and an eyewear brand.
Endorsements are fun for Alia.
“Endorsement obviously is fun because it’s about 30 seconds or 20 seconds and it is basically trying to sell the product more then anything. I can’t really say what is more fun, but when it come to ‘Highway’, yes it has been intense, it has been really gruelling. But it’s all in a good way, all in a positive way,” Alia said.
“Everyday when a shoot ends, I just want more. I want to shoot for 24 hours, 48 hours. So everyday when they say pack up, I say, ‘No I want more’. So, I think I’ll be going for ‘Highway’ now in four-five days and enjoy the experience again,” she added.
“Highway” is a Sajid Nadiadwala production and the shoot began March this year. It is the story of two completely different individuals who take a road trip in a truck.
While “2 States”, based on Chetan Bagat’s novel “2 States: The Story of My Marriage”, is about a Punjabi boy who falls in love with a Tamil girl, and the ensuing cultural clashes between them and their families.
Alia is paired with Arjun Kapoor in “2 States”, which is being directed Abhishek Verman and co-produced by Karan Johar and Nadiadwala.
