Alaya, during her interaction admitted that although she has worked in conducive work environment, yet she also had her share of ‘awful’ experiences. Alaya, while sharing her hostile experiences said, “There are some films where I had awful experiences on set. You are working with people who just don't care about you. They don't really have your best interest at heart. You have to fend for yourself. You have to handle situations in which you are not treated nicely. That, for me, was my biggest shock. Because it happened after I had been in the industry for a while, realising that it was also a part of the job did not feel very nice. When you work on a film, you really want it to be a safe, happy productive environment.”

She further added, “Not to forget there is a big difference in the way men and women are treated in the film industry. There are some wonderful sets I have been on and there are some not so wonderful sets also. There is still a long way to go (in terms of gender equality). There have been many instances that I have had other female actors that I worked with also had.”

Alaya was recently seen in Ali Abbas Zafar's Bade Miyan Chote Miyan. She played the role of IT Specialist Dr. Parminder Bawa aka PAM opposite Tiger Shroff. Akshay Kumar, Manushi Chhillar, Sonakshi Sinha, Prithviraj Sukumaran, Ronit Bose Roy also played crucial characters in the action-thriller.
