Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt became the butt of jokes after she made a blunder on Koffee With Karan, a chat show hosted by Karan Johar. When asked who was the president of India, Alia responded ‘Prithviraj Chauhan’. Ever since then, she has been the laughing stock on various social networking sites.
While Alia Bhatt and her family have taken it lightly, someone close to the Highway actress isn’t very happy. The someone we are referring to is none other than Preity Zinta. Not many know that PZ has worked with Alia in the movie Sangarsh. At that point of time, baby Bhatt was just 7 years old.
Ms Zinta in an interview said: “She played mini me in Sanghursh. She was about seven years old. I remember on the sets she would keep staring at me with huge eyes! Finally, I had to tell her ‘Darling, just blink!’ because she was so cute. Now that she’s worked hard and become successful people make fun of her. They have these Alia Bhatt jokes, saying all kinds of rubbish – why are they doing this? Only because she’s a successful and attractive girl? If she wasn’t that, and hadn’t given good performances nobody would have cared about her? Instead of applauding her in her first three movies, people on the internet are fully destroying her by saying all sorts of nasty things.”
Preity added, “What has she done to harm anyone? She worked hard in her profession and earned a name for herself. She didn’t win a lottery or steal anything from your father’s bank account – she’s done you no harm but yet you want to bring her down by saying nasty things to her. People should just stop this nonsense!”
Well, all we can say is, calm down Preity!
