It seems like Alia Bhatt has invited a lot of trouble for herself on social media after she shared her views on nepotism. In a recent interview, the mom-to-be broke her silence on being targeted for a star kid and asserted that if someone does not like her, they may not watch her at all. These blunt remarks of Alia have not gone down well with several netizens who are trolling the actress. A certain section of users is miffed with the actress as they started a hate campaign against her upcoming film ‘Brahmastra.’
Speaking with Mid-Day, the Raazi actress said, “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.” The video of the same has taken social media by storm with netizens lashing out at Alia. While some are calling the actress 'arrogant', others are planning to boycott her movies. One angry user tweeted, “Alia Bhatt : If u don't like me don't watch me I can't help it. We will all fulfill her wish too Let's make #Brahmastra 500Cr FLOPBUSTER We are just tickets buyers for them. They only need your money not you.” Another wrote, “Alia Bhatt is very angry on public and she said- Don’t watch my film if you don’t like me. Thank you madam. We will honour ur advise. So #BoycottBrahmastra will rock.#Bycottbollywood #BoycottBrahmastra.”
Alia made her Bollywood debut with Karan Johar's film Student of the Year in 2012 and since then she has been targeted for nepotism and is called a ‘nepo’ kid. It goes without saying that she has proved her mettle as a talented actress by delivering blockbuster films and taking up challenging roles.
