Alia Bhatt and nepotism comments

Alia Bhatt has faced a lot of unfavorable attention regarding the topic of nepotism in the past. Alia, who was launched in the Hindi film industry by Karan Johar with Student of the Year in 2012, has been criticised many a times for getting an easy entry into Bollywood because of her father, filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt.

Churni Ganguly on Alia

In a new interview with News18, Churni defended Alia. She said, “Alia is one of those performers who’s extremely talented. People speak about nepotism. There’s so much being said. I think nepotism only becomes relevant if the actor isn’t up to the mark and lacks talent. But that’s not the case with Alia. She has proved so film after film. She gets into the skin of her roles just like that. She brings life to a role that she plays. She did the same even in this film. We improvised a lot in some of our scenes and a lot of that came from Alia as well.”
