Aaliyah Kashyap took to her Instagram story to share a screenshot of the fundraiser page, and wrote, “hi everyone! my bestie/sister @idaali11 is fundraising for her senior thesis film! it would mean so much if you could contribute any amount!” In another story, she shared a screenshot of a DM sent to her by an Instagram user, who slammed Aaliyah for seeking funds for Imtiaz Ali’s daughter. The Netizen’s message read, “The rich asking for money, lol. Irony here is that she's Imtiaz Ali's daughter. Your friend's father has paid for film school. He can definitely produce the film also. Gosh, launching a fundraiser for this is 'peak' nincompoopery and privileged behaviour.”
Aaliyah Kashyap reacted to this and wrote that it's common for film students to crowd-fund their school films. She further pointed out that if Ida’s father Imtiaz Ali were to produce her movie, Netizens would cry nepotism. “lmao. firstly it's extremely common practice for film students to crowd fund for their school films. lieterally almost all film students do so, especially for their senior films. secondly, if her father produced her movie, then you would have a problem with it and call it nepotism. and now that she's trying to do it on her own and WANTS to do it own her own that's also apparently an issue?” wrote Aaliyah.

The fundraising page shares details about Ida Ali’s thesis film Red, which has been directed and written by her. “A trusting girl peaks the interest of a stalker, leading him to an unexpected place,” reads the synopsis of the film. Ida Ali shared that it is ‘based on Little Red Riding Hood by The Brothers Grimm, but has been modified for today's audience with darker twists and turns.’
