Earlier, in a video posted on her YouTube channel, Aaliyah distanced herself from the film industry. She was answering a fan question on how she feels about her Bollywood connection.

“So, I have been asked this question a lot but I avoid it because I am not really connected to the Bollywood industry. Yes, my parents are in the Bollywood industry but I didn’t grow up with the Bollywood glamour, if you know what I mean. The movies my dad makes aren’t very commercial. I obviously grew up watching my parents but for me, it seems normal because that is what I grew up watching. So, it’s not like, ‘Oh my God, it’s Bollywood.’ I don’t get fascinated by it. That is not what I want to do, I am trying to stay away from it,” she said.

Aaliyah, incidentally, met her boyfriend Shane Gregoire on a dating app. “On the dating app, I swiped on him first. On Hinge, it’s like, you swipe on them and then there is a like section where you can see who has liked you. And then, you can either like them back or ignore it. So he liked me back and we spoke,” she said in a different video, posted on her YouTube channel.
