Reason Behind Alia’s Absence

According to a report in Times Now, Alia was approached for the show but couldn’t make it due to financial reasons.

Netflix reportedly couldn’t meet Alia Bhatt’s fee demands, leading to her exclusion from the episode. Insiders suggest that the streamer allocates a specific budget for each episode, and exceeding it wasn’t feasible. Thus, when the makers couldn’t accommodate Bhatt’s fees, she declined to appear on the show.
