Shahid said, “We were trying to make ‘Udta Punjab’ for a year but no one wanted to do it as it is a dark film.

Shahid added, “She (Alia) read the script and called me crying as she was moved by the film. She agreed to do the film and it is very brave on her part. There are very few actresses who like to step out of their skin and not worry about looking good and play the character. I was very proud of her that she said yes to the film. She has been making some brave choices.”
