Bollywood actress, Alia Bhatt has always been vocal about her opinions and never hesitates to call a spade a spade. Daughter of popular filmmaker, Mahesh Bhatt and actress, Soni Razdan, Alia often falls prey to controversies and trolls. However, the actress never pays heed to the mean comments or hatred thrown at her and continues to shine and succeed. Well, once again, the actress has grabbed the limelight for her take on infidelity in one of her old interviews.
Recently, one of the Reddit users dug out an old interview of Alia Bhatt, wherein the actress talked about her father, Mahesh Bhatt's extramarital affair. For the unversed, Mahesh Bhatt married actress, Kiran Bhatt, and the couple had their daughter, Pooja Bhatt, at the tender age of 21. Later, he met Soni Razdan and fell in love with her while still being married to Kiran. Though Mahesh eventually parted ways with Kiran, he never divorced her.
During one of her interviews, while promoting her film, Kalank, Alia Bhatt was asked about her thoughts on infidelity and extramarital affairs. Responding to the same, Alia said that she doesn't propagate infidelity as things happen for a reason. Talking about how her father had an extramarital affair, the actress added:
“My father met my mother because he had an extramarital affair. I am not as black and white about life; sometimes in life, things happen for a reason. Of course, you would not want to propagate infidelity, and I don’t propagate it, but I understand the nature of humans — it’s not always that easy, and it is something that’s prevalent."
Further in the interview, the 30-year-old actress mentioned that infidelity is prevalent in our society and added that one should deal with it maturely. Asking people to understand the process rather than turning their heads away, Alia said:
“You can’t say it doesn’t exist or it can’t exist. It does! So try and understand it, look at it in a different way, or disagree with it, but have some perspective over it and don’t turn your head away.”
Alia Bhatt's comments on infidelity and extramarital affair have been widely circulated on the internet, and people are brutally trolling the Gangubai Kathiwadi star for defending her father, Mahesh Bhatt. One user commented, “Actors are normalizing infidelity now??? Heard somewhat the same thing from her, karan and DP. Why cheat though??? Just break up or separate!!! Please give respect to your partner”. Another user commented, “She is a product of Mahesh’s sick relationship. She is obligated to justify it." Check out the comments below:
It was on the sets of Brahmastra that Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor fell in love with each other and later got married on April 14, 2022. Ranbir, who is famous for his heartbreaker image, changed for the better ever since Alia came into his life, and now, the couple is blessed with a daughter, Raha Kapoor. However, as Alia's old comment on infidelity went viral on the internet, netizens started taking nasty digs at her and Ranbir's marriage.
However, a section of Alia Bhatt's fans hailed the actress and also lauded her for her mature take on infidelity. The netizens mentioned that Alia shouldn't have been asked such questions, as she had no role in her father, Mahesh Bhatt's extra-marital affair. Some people also praised Alia for taking a stand for her parents rather than defaming them in public for their actions.
