Talking about the pandemic, Alia said, “When the pandemic hit and COVID began for the first 3 months or 4 months, I remember, March, April, May, June, my focus was not, in fact, on COVID or the pandemic because we, as a family, were dealing with Rishi uncle’s passing away It was 30th April. So, that was like bang in the middle of the pandemic. So, March went in basically spending his time in the hospital, his health situation and even April”. The Badrinath Ki Dulhania actress also spoke about how she made sure to be with Neetu during that time.
“Post that it was spending time with Ranbir’s mum, spending time with my mum also now.
