When you become a famous face in the entertainment industry, there are always going to be plenty of people who will try to bring you down, with a lot of negative comments made about you, especially with the power of social media these days. To make sure that these negative comments do not get the better of you, you need to have a thick skin and take them on the chin.
For Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt, she finds that the best way to cope with the negative comments is to learn to laugh at yourself. Alia was recently made fun of on Twitter for being stupid, after she answered a general knowledge question wrong on Koffee with Karan, but the actress says that she is the first person to laugh at herself when it comes to things like that.
Bhatt was speaking to Bollywood.com, when she told them, "There are some jokes on me on Twitter and Facebook because I am apparently stupid. They are very hilarious. I don't get upset at them, I laugh at them. I am the first person to laugh at myself. I always say that I'd rather be stupid than pretend to be intelligent."
As for her acting career, Alia Bhatt has been enjoying a successful Bollywood career since making her debut in the movie Student of the Year. Alia has since gone on to appear in the films Ugly, Highway, and 2 States, while she will next appear in the upcoming movie Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, which has been written and directed by Shashank Khaitan and is set to open on July 11.
