It was mesmerizing to see Alia and Madhuri in the same frame. “It was wonderful to work with Alia. She has amazing energy; she reminds me so much of myself. She’s so professional, always on time, doing her job well and just wants to finish and go home. Alia comes with absolutely no baggage and that’s a wonderful trait,” Madhuri told a leading daily. Madhuri also said that the films that she opts for are brilliant as well. “What a brilliant actress she is! I don’t think we have seen someone as terrific as her in a long time. The choices she’s making are so powerful and meaningful. Alia has definitely changed the whole ball game,” she added.
