Right now she is giving us glimpses of her friend Kripa Mehta’s upcoming wedding. Decked out in a lovely blue ruffled dress, she joins her girl gang, including Akansha Ranjan and Meghna Goyal in teeing off the festivities, which will soon culminate in D-day. She posted pics of herself and her gals, with the succinct caption – “A team.”
She does take this team business very seriously especially when it comes to weddings, and never ever misses a friend’s big day, no matter how busy she is with work. For instance, in January 2015 she had taken a break from filming Shandaar and attending all the assorted awards functions, to fly off to Goa for her close friend’s wedding celebrations. Alia was spotted in a host of pretty traditional costumes, having a ball with her gals.
Later that year, she played a key role in planning her pal Masaba Gupta’s wedding; she even performed at the Sangeet, dancing to the tunes of ‘Gulabo’ and ‘Sari ki fall sa’.
Of course, Alia being Alia, she doesn’t hesitate to put an ultra-demanding bride in her place, even if the bride happens to be her closest friend. Quizzed recently on what advice she would give to brides, she had revealed, “Actually, my best friend is getting married in January (2018). I would give one advice to her and everyone: please don't make your wedding a torture for everyone around you, as everyone else is happy for you.” Bridezillas, do note!

To the grooms, she advised, “Do not take anything to heart; because it's a big moment for the bride, she is too emotional by default.”
And as to who would be her own potential bridesmaids, the answer was “My best friend, Kachi. My sister would also be one.”
Sweet, but somehow we don’t doubt that it will be at least a decade or two before this li’l powerhouse considers a walk down the aisle herself.
