Rubbishing rumours about Pakistani actor Ali Zafar's replacement, actor Alia Bhatt confirmed that her multi-starrer upcoming film Dear Zindagi will be released as it is.

"Nobody has been replaced and the film is releasing as it is," said Alia to a query about Ali's replacement while she was attending the cover launch of magazine Absolute Elyx Filmfare Glamour and Style here on Monday.

The cover of the magazine features Absolute Elyx Glamour and Style award winners like Sidhharth Mahadevan, Kajol, Tiger Shroff and Karan Johar to name a few. Alia was the winner of Trendsetter of the Year Award.

Asked which dress she finds sexy, she said: "I think pajama will look sexy on me, over bikini. Fashion is not about showing skin but attitude. So I will choose pajama!"

Rumours had it that Ali has been replaced by Tahir Raj Bhasin followed by the ban on Pakistani actors in Indian film. However, Alia's statement clears the air on the issue.

About her character in the film, she said, "Dear Zindagi is the closest to my character, I can relate to the character so much. Though I will not say that is exactly who I am but it is the same thing that happen when in a irritating relationship or fighting with my mother. I thing, everyone some way or the other can relate to the character."

As recently Sharmila Tagore said that if a bio-pic is in the making on her late husband, the Nawab of Pataudi, Alia can play her role, Alia, taking it as a compliment, said: "The film industry is a family to me. Therefore, when any senior member is appreciating my work, it is overwhelming. I hope, if I will get the opportunity, I will perform it well."

The actor who celebrated Children's Day in the morning with slam kids, urged all the youngsters to be passionate about whatever they do. "Whatever you do, do with determination. You have one life to live do your work with passion and give your best. Whether you want to be a chef, doctor, actor or a mother, be passionate to get the best result."
