India’s emerging starlet Alia Bhatt has responded to those critics and trolls who were objecting on her pairing up with Salman Khan as there is a certain age difference of almost 27 years between them.
As soon as Sanjay Leela Bhansali has announced his upcoming project ‘InshaAllah’ which will be featuring Alia Bhatt and Salman Khan in lead roles, people starting lashing out at the duo as it doesn’t make sense to them.
The announcement has received mixed responses over Alia’s pairing up with Salman Khan from the public. While some fans have expressed happiness and excitement, others have criticized them for Alia and Salman’s age gap.
A user wrote on social media over the odd pairing: “Is Alia playing Salman Khan’s daughter?”
In response to these critics, Alia in her recent interview breaks the silence after stating that:
“I didn’t get any criticism. I think I got a lot of excitement. I think a speculation is also a form of excitement in a way and why shouldn’t there be speculation? There should be and at least I am not bothered by that and I don’t think Salman or Bhansali sir are bothered.”
The ‘Raazi’ actress further added: “I think this is a filmmaker who has given us very good films, he is someone who we all are very fond of and I think we should just trust him with his vision.”
Earlier when the announcement of Alia and Salman’s pairing was to be made, the actress took to her twitter handle to show her excitement.
She wrote: “Dream with your eyes wide open they say & I did. Sanjay Sir and Salman Khan are magical together & I can’t wait to join them on this beautiful journey called “InshaAllah”.
