Actress Alia Bhatt has refused to react to remarks by Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel. Kangana and Rangoli had slammed filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and his daughter Alia for nepotism, recently. When asked about people attacking her online and taking digs at her and family members, Alia said, “If I am mature then my family is 10 times more mature and stronger than I am. I don’t want to get into this.”
“I just want to be happy, positive, work hard, be a better version of myself every day. I should not pay attention to what people are saying. Everyone has the right to say and what they want to say. I’ll remain quiet. This is my stand,” she said on the sidelines of Critics’ Choice Film Awards, here.
Now it seems like Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli is in no mood to make peace on the matter and further attacked Kalank actress for her remarks that “she will remain silent”, to which Rangoli replied “I really hope you go quiet darling.”
Alia Bhatt has been on the receiving end of some critical comments made by Kangana Ranaut, starting with the 32-year-old actor dismissing Alia’s performance in Gully Boy as “mediocre” and saying that she was ’embarrassed’ that Alia Bhatt in Gully Boy is considered her competition.
The controversy took a different turn after Rangoli target Alia Bhatt and her mother over an article about their British passports. Soni Razdan retaliated with a tweet (which she later deleted) and reminded Rangoli that Alia’s father Mahesh Bhatt gave Kangana her “Bollywood break.” Rangoli then alleged that Mahesh Bhatt “threw a chappal” at Kangana at the preview of Woh Lamhe when she refused to star in one of his films.
On criticism of “Kalank”, she said: “I’m not going to analyse my film because that is something not required. Audience’s verdict is the biggest proof for a film. When the audience does not accept a film, it would not do well. That’s the way it is. We should accept it, come back, try and make sure they’re not disappointed the next time.”
“Kalank” also stars Varun Dhawan, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha, Kunal Kemmu, Aditya Roy Kapur, Kiara Advani, Kriti Sanon and Madhuri Dixit.
She will next be seen in “Brahmastra” opposite Ranbir Kapoor and ‘Inshallah’ opposite Salman Khan. She is also part of S.S. Rajamouli’s “RRR”
