When asked to comment on replacing Kareena in Shuddhi, Alia said, "I don't think it's about replacing or anything at all in this situation. It's just a film that I am doing, that I have been cast for with a director and another actor, and there is a producer involved. It's very simple. I don't want to say too much about it. Of course, there is a lot that's being said about the whole thing. And I want the visuals and all to come out for the people to see what the film is looking like, rather than me talking about it".
Alia Bhatt certainly does not want to make things sour with her idol, Kareena Kapoor and the young diva knows how to keep it simple and safe.
