Mother is mother, even if she is a Bollywood director. Buzz is that mom Soni Razdan put her own directorial project on hold to ensure a smooth passage for her daughter Alia who is debuting in Karan Johar’s ‘Student of The Year’. Filmmaker Soni has scripted a film that she will direct soon after ‘Student of The Year’ starring her daughter Alia is released. She doesn’t say anything if she wrote the script keeping in view her daughter. She is happy that Alia has got the best possible debut under the biggest banner of Karan Johar. Soni says that Alia needed her initially during the outdoor shooting, but not thereafter as she then became fairly confident of her.

Soni recalls that she ran away to England for entering into films. Alia also wanted to be an actress. In fact at 10, she had auditioned for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's proposed love story ‘Hamari Jaan Ho Tum’, a take on Balika Badhu! Sanjay Leela Bhansali had then predicted that Alia was a born actress. It took some years for her to face the camera. But now Alia has the confidence. Soni's elder daughter Shaheen has no inclination to face the camera. Shaheen wants to write. She is more of a loner than Alia. She reads a lot. She is gearing up for a career in writing.
