Watch: Alia’s ‘Genius of the year ‘ video goes viral
Alia Bhatt has become the butt of jokes after she appeared on the chat show, ‘Koffee With Karan’. Karan tested her IQ and Alia completely failed. She named Chief Minister of Maharashtra Prithviraj Chauhan as the President of India and gave a chance to her fans, family and friends to crack jokes on her.
Alia instead of feeling embarrassed got a good lesson of her ignorance about current affairs and uploaded a video where she goes out for brain enlargement and developed her IQ. She shot a video titled, ‘Genius of the year’ and replied back to those who took a potshot at Alia for her poor knowledge.
The video begins with a message that reads – “In 2014, a documentary crew follows Alia Bhatt in the aftermath of her ‘Koffee With Karan’ debacle”.
To become intelligence, she visited a ‘Dumb Belle Mental Gym’, which offers her to take her from “Dolce & Gabbana to ‘Smart like Shabana (Azmi)'”. At the gym, she was given to read newspapers and her diet is “three portions of newspapers in the morning” and she is instructed to “skip Page 3?. She brushed up her knowledge via music, and again when she appeared “Koffee With Karan”, Alia stuns host Karan with her answers.
Directed by Shakun Batra, the video also made fun of Alia’s hit songs. Her latest song, ‘Saturday Saturday’ from Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania has been changed to ‘Faraday Faraday’, another song of Alia, ‘Radha On The Dance Floor’ has been turned into ‘Sodium On The Dance Floor’.
The actress took to Twitter and said, “So after the “Alia Bhatt Jokes” thing.. I decided to FIX my BRAIN !! Check this out #AlB @AllIndiaBakchod.”
The actress also thanked her friends and family for supporting her.
The video also features filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, Karan Johar, Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra.
“I don’t get upset at it, I laugh at it. I am the first person to laugh at myself. I always say that I rather be stupid than pretend to be intelligent,” Alia said in an interview earlier.
