Recently we caught up with Alia Bhatt for a quick chat while she was busy with the promotions of 'Udta Punjab'.
Apart from the film we couldn't resist ourselves from asking her about the furore created by Tanmay Bhat's Snapchat video where he mimicked Lata Mangeshkar and Sachin Tendulkar and what she thought about it.
Here's what she told us-
" People say a lot of things, especially about celebrities and actors. I mean if we sit and read as to what people say on everybody's timeline, you would be very shocked. There are insults that are actually directed at you and then there are some jokes that people find very offending. It’s that's the way you look at it. I have always chosen to look past all the things people say about you, because I feel like the insulting or all the jokes they make of you, that's their call...it's not going to change my life in anyway. Unless they are coming and physically harming me or coming to beat me up with a bat, then that is harming me... Words don't harm me, beyond a point. So that's the way I look at it personally for the jokes that are made on me and all the insults that I get! And then there are a lot of them, trust me on that. So nobody should die because of anybody's jokes.
That's the way we look at it, I think it is absolutely fair for you to say that it’s completely low of somebody to make a joke like that. But apart from that what can you do, you make a comment and then you have to move past it, that's the only thing. Going on and on about what is right and what is wrong we can talk for thousand years. Actually there are so many other things that are right and wrong, we can sit and talk about it for a very long time."
Point noted, Alia!
