She was asked by the journalists about her thoughts on the news and she reacted as one would expect. She said that it is a “very disgraceful, shameful and terrible incident.”
Alia further added, “As a girl, as a woman, as an individual, as a resident of this country, I feel very bad and hurt that something like this has happened.” In fact, the actress revealed that reading about the incident in newspapers was overwhelming for her and hence she stopped reading the updates two days back. “I think the more I read it, it makes me more upset, angry and hurt. I hope from my heart that justice is served. We should really go out there and condemn this because this cannot be done to us again and again.
