I want to portray each of my characters in the best manner and with full effort.”
Talking about her debut movie, Jihad, which was a difficult and challenging role for a newbie, Alfeeya said, “I don’t want to be a glam doll, so when I got ‘Jihad,’ I would love not only the story of the film but also my role was much better. Apart from this, the film also gives a great message, so I made my film debut with this movie in Bollywood.”
