"Two years down the line, Alia has an amazing repertoire of films. I however apologise for Shaandar. Besides that, she has had some amazing films like 2 States, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya and Kapoor & Sons; Alia is Dharma Production's proud girl and always the flagship girl of the company," Karan said at a press conference to celebrate Kapoor & Sons' success.

"When I launched Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra in their first film, I never thought I would see them come through this way on celluloid. I watched Alia in Highway; I wept a little bit only because I couldn't believe my little child has emerged as an actor," Karan said.
