Recently, Alia penned a note to clear rumours of her being upset with SS Rajamouli over her limited screen time in RRR. She plays Sita in the film. She wrote, “In today's randomness, I've heard that I have apparently deleted my RRR posts because I'm upset with the team. I sincerely request everyone not to make assumptions based on something as random as an Instagram grid. I always realign old video posts from my profile grid because I prefer it to look less cluttered.”
