When asked about it, Alia said in an interview,"Yes, I have met her for something that I am really interested in and hopefully it will all work out. I am really excited about working with her. It's a very nice script."

Alia, meanwhile, is working with Ranbir Kapoor in Brahmastra, directed by Ayan Mukerji and is also shooting for Kalank. Directed by Abhishek Varman, the epic drama stars Sonakshi Sinha, Varun Dhawan and Aditya Roy Kapur. The film, set in the 1940s, also features Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt.

Asked about working with Madhuri, the young star said, "She is beautiful. She made it comfortable and normal. It is just the beginning. We have shot only for a couple of days."

Alia, 25, is currently gearing up for the release of her latest film Raazi.

The period thriller, an adaptation of Harinder Sikka's novel Calling Sehmat, is about an Indian spy married to a Pakistani military officer during the Indo-Pakistan War of 1971.

The film, which also features Vicky Kaushal, is scheduled to release on 11 May.
