Speaking about calling the shots, she added, “This is my first experience as a director and I am enjoying it a lot. My skin was burnt while we were shooting because I didn’t know when it was going to be sunny or cloudy, I was seriously going crazy. I was so immersed in the shoot and nearly lost myself in the making.” The shoot has wrapped up and Aaliya is currently working on her project’s editing. Post this, Aaliya is keen to start shooting for her next production venture, a biopic on Teejan Bai.
When asked about the kind of support she has been receiving from estranged husband Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Aaliya stated, “I haven’t met the kids yet, it has been a month. Nawaz is roaming with the kids all over, currently they are in Hyderabad since he is shooting there. The kids are very happy with their father and the biggest support I have from Nawaz is that he has become close to the kids. He is taking care of them. Nawaz is giving them a lot of time and he has fulfilled his responsibility towards the kids. There can be no bigger support than this. I am very proud of him.”
