Alia who's accepted herself to be an all-time Kareena buff finally got to be herself in Kjo's Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. While the babe is seen delivering lines like â€œMain shaadi karungi, toh Kareena wala lehenga pehen ke karungi, warna dulhe ko tata bye-bye kar do!â€ even her styling and ensembles resemble that of Bebo's in Jab We Met.
HSKD is said to be a rom-com revolving around Humpty (Varun) and Kavya (Alia), who fall for each other a month and a half prior to Kavya's wedding with Siddharth Shukla!
While we've seen Alia's persona Shanaya in SOTY being a replica of Poo from K3G, Alia's fashion sense also seems to be quite inspired by Kareena's. Ms Bhatt was primped in the same MapxencaRS jacket by Ridhi and Sidhi at Highway music launch that was donned by Kareena at Salman's Being Human Fashion Show. While Bebo opted for Varun Bahl trousers and a sexy hat minus an undershirt, Alia, on the other hand, paired her blazer with hound's-tooth pants and a white blouse.
Alia has always maintained that she is a die-hard Kapoor fan. â€œYes everything about her, not only her films but also her interviews, her pictures, her adas and expressions. Uff! I love her, she's fab. I've learnt so much just by looking at her. But I don't copy her. I have my own style. I don't think there should be any comparisons between me and Kareena. Agreed, many compared my character Shanaya in Student of the Year with Kareena's Pooh in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and that too because both are fashionistas, but even then Shanaya couldn't match up to Pooh. Even if people think there is some similarity, I don't see it. There can't be any similarity ever. I don't think I can match up to her."
Alia also admitted that she aspires to be like Kareena someday, and would love to star in remakes of her films.
In response to Alia's praise, all that Mrs. Khan nee Kapoor managed to respond was, "No, I'm not keeping track. Karan also said something on his show, and I was like, really? But as of now, I'm just keeping track of what I'm doing, where I'm going or what Saif is doing. I can't be keeping track of what everyone else is doing."
Pretty crude, right? Anyway these uncomplimentary off late remarks by Bebo have upset Alia to the extent that while promoting Highway at Mehboob studio Alia seemed to apparently ignore her idol, who also present, was shooting for a cosmetic brand. Looks like the birth of another cold war!
