The 23-year-old actress says she had the habit of sleeping in school.

"Then I had to wipe the desk for a week. Very bad thing to do. So please don't sleep in class, sleep at home," she added. 

Alia was speaking at a special event organised to celebrate Children's Day. 

Alia interacted with the children of ACORN Foundation and answered some of their questions.  

"I asked one of the kids my age and he said 32! I am a kid too and hence wanted to celebrate children's day with you. I feel so happy here. I have never done this before but I wish to celebrate children's day like this every year," she said. 

The actress confessed being a foodie shared that "every possible name around 'aaloo' (potato)" is her pet name.

On the occasion, Alia sang songs from her film and also shook a leg along with the children. 

On the work front, the actress is looking forward to her next release ‘Dear Zindagi’ alongside Shahrukh Khan which is scheduled to hit theatres on November 25.
