Mumbai: It seems the excitement and exhaustion of the past few weeks have finally caught up with young Alia Bhatt. This weekend the petite but ostensibly tireless scene-stealer was down with an exhaustion-induced fever.

Said a friend of the actress: "Shooting `Highway` was emotionally and physically gruelling. Alia has been promoting `Highway` extensively all over the country."

"Even before the film was released properly, she was already promoting her next film `2 States`. And that wasn`t all. She was also shooting nights for Shashank Khaitan`s `Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya` and simultaneously dubbing for `2 States`. All of this multi-activity proved too much for 20-year-old girl."

"She has been advised to rest it out. She`s a livewire and cannot rest easy. You won`t find Alia in the same place for more than five minutes. But for now, she`s taking it easy," added the friend.
