"It is a very important film for me and Varun. It is our biggest film in terms of budget till date. Honestly, we have a stress of our own release, but director Abhishek (Varman) is a close friend so the stress doubles. The journey on this film was not fun and games. It was very emotional and intense," she adds. Praising Varman, with whom she also worked in "2 States", Alia says he is a "complete director". "He will get the beauty, drama, scale and naturalness so organically. He is the first person I call for any advice."
