Starting off with the plot outline and his character in independent American film The Valley, Alyy Khan explained:

"The Valley is a very relevant film in today's setting. It is being shot at the Silicon Valley and revolves around a perfect and successful Indian family. The film starts with the youngest daughter attempting suicide. And it's basically a dark journey of a man (the father played by Khan) who overcomes lingering questions of his own life. And such high incidents are actually quite common with American-Indian kids who belong to successful families, they have a lot of pressure on their shoulders."

Shedding some light towards Khan's projects on this side of the world, and seems like he has kept himself as busy as a beaver. Telling HIP a bit about his films locally and across the border, Alyy Khan said:

"Alhumdullilah I've had a busy year. Four television serials of mine are currently on-air. I've completed two films, one of which called Mah-e-Meer is slated for a May release. And I just finished the shoot of the other one called Actor In Law, it's a comical political satire and I'll be playing the antagonist. It has a very clever script and Nabeel has set quite a standard with Na Maloom Afraad. It's a fun film, very well casted and will be releasing on Eid-Ul-Azha. Besides that there's some conversation going on about two very interesting projects across the border."
