This time on Koffee With Karan season 8, two reigning queens of Bollywood, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Alia Bhatt were ready to set the couch on fire! During the conversation, Alia Bhatt talked about the perception the internet has about Ranbir Kapoor being a ‘toxic’ husband. In recent times, the actress has shared several anecdotes including one about him asking her to wipe her lipstick off as her natural lips look good and it being taken as Ranbir being a controlling husband. The actress said that he is genuinely the opposite of what people think of him.
“I’ve been accused of talking too much about Ranbir,” Alia said on Koffee With Karan. “Anything you say about him becomes like an explosion online,” KJo said, and added, “Is it because Ranbir is not on social media?” Kareena Kapoor Khan agreed and so did Alia.
She continued, “I think so. I have a very candid way of speaking and even when I’m talking about something in my life, I like to imitate the person I’m talking about, I like to give anecdotes, I like to make it personal and I feel like a lot of the things just get picked out of context. Which happened recently with a video and stuff like that. My team told me yeh kuch out of hand jaa raha hain (this is getting out of hand) and I said OK theek hai, jaane do because genuinely people say things all the time.”
“But then I realized there are serious articles talking about how he’s a toxic man and this and that and I’m like, are we serious? There are many issues in the world to give more attention toward than something I said in a completely different context. And I feel bad if people misunderstand it because he’s genuinely the opposite of that,” said Alia.
“There is a line I feel is being crossed but you can’t say anything about it, people can say what they want about you. In fact, Ranbir says this, ‘Alia the audience owns you, they can say what the hell they want about you. As long as your movies are doing well, please do not complain sitting in your apartment in Bandra.’ I was like, ya that’s right, kuch mat bolo (don’t say anything),” Alia Bhatt added.
On the work front, Alia Bhatt is currently shooting for Jigra with Vasan Bala. This is her second co-production.\
