Informs a source, “Alia is working with Gauri for the first time and was therefore unaware of the way she functions. It is only during the workshop that she realised that Gauri is a taskmaster. There have also been moments when a frustrated Alia cried because she could not get what the director had envisioned.”

She has completed the first schedule of the film in Goa in February and is prepared to shoot for the next schedule starting in May. The source adds, “During the first schedule too she had to take a lot of effort to ensure that the director is happy with her takes. But, now that she knows her well, she is prepared for the next schedule.”

However, when contacted Gauri rubbishes the report and says, "I wonder where this comes from."

Alia Batt also denies the rumour.
