Ira Dubey, who plays Alia Bhatt's BFF (Best Friends Forever) in Gauri Shinde's Dear Zindagi says that Alia has done a fantastic job in the film.
Talking about the film, Alia Bhatt and director Gauri Shinde, Ira told Mumbai Mirror, ''Gauri Shinde is an extremely positive, encouraging and grounded director. I always say that, in a film the captain of the ship is the director and everybody follows his/her vision. I think that Gauri has done a marvellous job. I feel very proud to be a part of this film. Alia has done a fantastic job and we had a blast shooting.''
Ira Dubey further added, ''The friendship between Alia and me in the film is the one that grows out of workplace. We work together and we become friends. It is a very genuine and solid friendship. And it is something a lot of people will relate to including strong and independent women of today who juggle a lot of things but are still there for each other.''
When asked, ''You became great friends with Alia on the sets?" Ira said, ''Not only with Alia, but with the whole gang. While doing a film, the team unit becomes like a family. It isn't as if we are best friends and are calling each other every day, but we are friends, of course.''
''During the screening also, a lot of seniors from the industry were congratulating Alia and she kept asking me if I was happy and I said of course I am very happy,'' she added.
