In a recent media interview, Alaya F who will next be seen in Freddy alongside Kartik Aaryan said that she read the script of Freddy while she was shooting for another project. The actress finished the reading between the takes and after that gave her nod to the project.
"Everything about Freddy was just so exciting. Starting from the fact that Ekta (Kapoor) ma'am and Jay (Shwewakarmani, the co-producer) sir were a part of it, and since I had worked with both of them on earlier projects, there was a great level of comfort and trust!. Then, of course, Kartik was a part of the project and I was really grateful that I was getting the opportunity to work with him."
"Most importantly, the script! I remember the first time I received the script, I was in the middle of another shoot, and I was reading it on my phone, very secretly and discreetly between shots. I was so engaged and gripped! I was overjoyed that I was getting the opportunity to play this role. I was just so, so excited! Everything on this project was a winner for me," she said.
Directed by Shashanka Ghosh, Freddy will drop on streaming platform Disney+ Hotstar on December 2.
