Aaliyah’s father Anurag had once told NDTV in an interview that he would not launch her in movies as she was an“urban kid” while he is a “street” one. But he had said that she would have to learn acting. “She’s an adult, she has to choose, but definitely she has to learn. She can’t wake up one day and say ‘I want to be an actor’.”
Ida, who studies filmmaking at California’s Chapman University: Dodge College Of Film And Media Arts shared a short film on YouTube featuring Aaliyah, earlier this year. She made the short film for her school project and talked about it in her Instagram stories.
