Alia Bhatt BREAKS SILENCE on the bullying that she has endured as a result of being a celebrity kid

Things were different two years ago. After Sushant Singh Rajput’s case, other famous celebs, particularly celebrity kids, came under attack. Sadly our dear actress Alia Bhatt was the target of most of the trolls. Her movie Sadak 3 was released in this same period despite being poorly made the garnered much more trolls than it would have if it had been published earlier.

Alia Bhat recently opened up on this aspect while having an in-depth conversation with Mid-Day. “I believed the only way I could shut the conversation down is through my movies. So, don’t respond, don’t feel bad. Of course, I felt bad. But feeling bad is a small price to pay for the work that you are respected and loved for. I delivered a film like Gangubai. So, who’s having the last laugh? At least until I deliver my next flop? For now, I am laughing!” She replied while answering one of the questions on getting affected due to the extreme trolling.

“I can’t keep defending myself verbally. And if you don’t like me, don’t watch me. I can’t help it. That’s something I can’t do [anything about]. People have something to say. Hopefully, I will prove to them with my movies that I am worth the space I occupy.” she added. She was genuine enough to admit that a part of her was wondering, “What the hell is this nonsense? Why is it happening irrationally?

Kangana Ranaut used the phrase “nepotism” on Karan Johar’s talk show, “Koffee With Karan,” and it quickly gained widespread recognition. In 2020, Alia and other “nepo kids” were targeted and accused of leveraging their familial ties to succeed while those from outside the community were in need.

Alia Bhatt focused on the idea that nepotism happens in every industry and can only be beneficial till a certain point before you need to prove your worth. You can recommend someone for a career in technology, marketing, or finance but if he fails at that task, the company loses money. The audience is the main success metric in the film industry. If they believe you deserve it, they will give you that accomplishment. Putting an end to this conversation, she remarked, “How can I affect where I was born, bhai? She went on to suggest that if her child wanted to be in the movie, he or she would need to show that they could take rejection.

On the work front, Alia Bhat’s movie Gangubai Kathiawadi proved to be the only recent hit among all the latest releases. Darlings, her Netflix original, has received a lot of positive reviews. Brahmastra, her forthcoming movie with husband Ranbir Kapoor, has sparked a lot of anticipation.
