In a recent media interview, Alaya F, who will be seen opposite Kartik Aaryan in the upcoming streaming movie Freddy, said that she didn't get time to prepare for her role in Freddy due to multiple shoots.
Speaking about the same, the actress said: "Usually, I'm a very preparation-heavy actor. I find a lot of comfort in preparation. But for Freddy, it was completely different. I was shooting for another film in Chandigarh at the time and that schedule got extended. So, as soon as I wrapped that shoot and came back to Bombay, I was on the sets of Freddy the very next day. There was zero time in between."
For Alaya, the preparations happened on set in real time: "So, this time around, my prep happened on set, during our shoot, and after packing up when I would run to my acting coach to try and prep for the next day! Luckily I was surrounded by the most talented and skilled team so with their support and guidance, I figured Kainaaz (her character) out. Kainaaz is a very interesting one for sure. She has so many layers and so much complexity. It was such a joy playing her (for the screen), I learned a lot through the experience."
Produced by Balaji Telefilms Ltd, NH Studioz and Northern Lights Films, and directed by Shashanka Ghosh, Freddy will release on December 2, on Disney+ Hotstar.
