Alishba was born and raised by her mother, worked as a teacher in Lahore. At some point, Alishba met and befriended Ahad Ali.

At a young age, Alishba and Ahad developed an interest for drifting. Their interest was such that the Alishba and her friends would cut class to travel up to the mountain to watch the older kids they knew drift in their cars.[1] Eventually, Alishba and Ahad became romantic and they began to date. However, Ahad became possessive of Alishba and slowly became someone she felt unsafe with.

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

Alishba is among the first students in a class that Raja Hussain Iqbal arrived late to at Beacon-House Newlands to notice him. At the parking garage where illegal street races are held and observed, Alishba arrives in her 2004 Mazda RX-8 and complains about the responsiveness of her car to Saif and Sana. Hussain approaches her, using her car a way speak with her.

While Alishba is amused by Hussain's self-professed love for cars, she evades his questions about where she was from. Their conversation is interrupted when Ahad steps and insults Hussain, calling him a "Worthless". Hussain attempted to defend Alishba's right to speak with him, inadvertently challenging Ahad to a race, which Alishba was against.

After Hussain loses the race, Alishba meets him some time after he has fallen under the debt of Syed Hamza Amir. Alishba makes light of the fact that they've run into each other again and asked what he was doing in the area. Hussain makes light of the fact that he met with Ahad when he was with Hamza. Alishba warns him that he wants no part of the world she and Alishba live him, but Hussain assumes that her association with it makes it good enough be in.

Alishba, however, is quick to remind him that he doesn't know anything about her as a person. Hussain makes the mistake of assuming that her reasoning stemmed from the fact that he was considered a "Worthless". Alishba is quick to tell Hussain he was wrong and distanced herself from him.

Some time after Hussain begins to learn how to drift, Alishba encounters him again. She watches him break up a fight between Ali Hamza Zaidi and Asif Masood, who wanted a refund for the ipod he bought from Hamza. Hussain gives Asif his ipod, embarrassing Hamza, who realizes everyone will want refunds for the products they bought from him. Amused, Alishba remarks to Hussain that it wasn't easy being the "hero" of that situation. Hussain apologizes for what he said to her the other night. Alishba accepted his apology and when the two meet again, Hussain has mastered drifting and beat Asif in a race.

The two have dinner the following night and Alishba confides in Hussain about her childhood. The consequences of Hussain and Alishba getting to know each other, however, provokes Ahad, who assasults Hussain and warns him to stay away from Alishba. When Alishba sees a bruised Hussain arrive at school, she visits Ahad's place and declares that their relationship is over.

Ahad purported that the two of them weren't so different and insults her mother, recounting that her mother was considered "the best trick" in Lahore when Alishba was a child. Ahad believed Alishba would've ended up like her mother if his family hadn't taken her in when they did. Alishba warns him to leave her mother out of their argument and poses the question whether or not anyone would pay him any mind if it weren't for the reputation his uncle earned as a member of the Mafia Chain In Lahore.

Following her confrontation with Ahad, she moves in with Syed Hamza Amir crew. When Ahad confronts Hamza for stealing money from his uncle, Alishbais forced to escape the garage with Hussain when Ahad and Asif attack Hamza and the others. Alishba accompanies Hussain inside his Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII during their escape from Ahad and Alishba. When the tail of the Lancer is clipped, the two flee the car and witness Hamza die.

Afterwards at Hussain's dad's house, Ahad shows up and threatens to kill Hussain. Alishba volunteers to leave with Ahad to avoid any bloodshed. Hussain shows up to make a deal with Ahad's uncle, Alishba tells him that he shouldn't be there. After the race down the mountain in which Ahad is beaten, Alishba is free of Ahad and his uncle and happily dates Hussain.
