The true genius that is Alia Bhatt has starred in various memes and jokes after her GK quiz fiasco on Koffee with Karan. Her response to the mockery is perfect and hilarious in a viral video by All India Bakchod.
She appropriately responded to the trolls during an Indian Express interview earlier this year – “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… Basically there are these Twitter and Facebook jokes on me, because I am apparently stupid. They are very hilarious.” However, the never ending mockers had it coming and she retorted with this amazing video.
In the 10 minutes mockumentary, she signs up for a Dumb Belle Mental Gym to increase her BMI (Brain Mein IQ) as the gym promises her to take her from ” “from Dolce & Gabbana to smart like Shabana.”
The video has more than 3 millions views in 4 days. The video, written and produced by AIB and directed by Shakun Batra, also stars Karan Johar, Parineeti Chopra, Arjun Kapoor, and Mahesh Bhatt.
Buzzfeed spoke to AIB’s Rohan Joshi and he happily stated that, “When all those Alia jokes started after her Koffee With Karan GK Quiz fiasco, Alia herself was really chilled about it. The awesome thing about her is that in general she’s really sporting about how she’s perceived. She doesn’t take her public image too seriously and wears it really well. Also, by dumb coincidence, she’s naturally funny as fuck. When we pitched the idea to her, she committed to the comedy of it, good and proper. Her comic timing is great, she makes ridiculous faces, and there were times when she was like, ‘This isn’t mean enough!’
What was really awesome for us was how easily she and everyone else agreed; Karan Johar, Arjun Kapoor, Parineeti Chopra, everyone just heard us out once and said, “Yeah, OK.” That’s exciting as hell for us because if more people from Bollywood open themselves up to self-parody so easily, everyone’s going to be able to have SO MUCH FUN with that on the internet.”
