Now, the actor is soon to start with her much ambitious project Sadak 2 and will lend her voice to a track for this film as well.

The film starts rolling in May. “We will go on floors with Sadak 2 in the month of May where we will be shooting an important chunk of the film,” she added. Music composer Jeet Ganguli, who previously associated with the Bhatt camp for Aashiqui 2 among other films, has come on board to create music for Sadak 2. From what we know, a couple of tracks are going to be crooned by Arijit Singh as well. Will Alia and Arijit have a duet then? Or, will her song be a solo number?
