In Recent times Alia is on receiving end by many, mainly for depicting Biharis in poor light.
Most prominent is Actress Neetu Chandra, who is from Bihar, had written an open letter to the film’s director Abhishek Chaubey and Alia Bhatt for the way people of the state have been portrayed in the movie.
“For those who make assumptions based on what they have seen in the trailer, it is better for us to keep quiet and not say anything because whatever people are assuming, especially the person in question here, is assuming from the trailer, which could also possibly not be true,”
“We always make assumptions before we really see the full and final project. The trailer is just a hint while the film is the real content. So, after seeing the film if people have the same problem, then it is correct to justify. Before that, we have to just wait,”
