Alaya F is excited about her next film Freddy in which she shares screen space with Kartik Aryan. The actress recently opened up about her character in the film.

Shedding some light into her character in the film, Alaya said, "My character, Kainaaz, is very interesting. She has many layers and a lot of complexity. It was a joy to play her. I have learned a lot from the experience."

Alaya says that she is someone who prefers to undergo extensive preparations before every film. However, things were a little different for Freddy. Due to packed shooting schedules, Alaya had very little time to prepare for Kianaaz's character.

Alaya was shooting for another film in Chandigarh, the schedule of which got extended. After wrapping the shoot of that film, she had to join the team of Freddy the next day. "As soon as I wrapped up the shoot of the other film, I returned to Mumbai and had to be on the set of Freddy the very next day. I had absolutely no time to prepare for Freddy. So, my prep happened on set, during our shoot, and after packing up, when I would run to my acting coach," shared the actress.

She also added that the entire team of Freddy was very supportive and with their help and support, Alaya was able to figure Kainaaz out.

The story of Freddy revolves around a shy, lonely and socially awkward person named Dr. Freddy Ginwala (played by Kartik). He does not have a lot of friends; in fact, his only friend is his pet turtle, Hardy. The film is about how things change one day after a series of twists and turns.

Freddy is directed by Shashanka Ghosh, and is produced by Balaji Telefilms Ltd, NH Studioz and Northern Lights Films. It is slated to release on December 2 on Disney+ Hotstar.
