A few days back Bollywood actors Alia Bhatt and Hrithik Roshan got invited for the Academy award show alongside 819 artistes. On Thursday, Alia took to her social media to express gratitude to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for inviting her to be a member of such a prestigious award show. In the gratitude post, the Gully Boy actress claimed that social media divides people.
Alia’s gratitude note read, “I thank The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for inviting me to be a member of the Academy. I feel at once honoured and humbled.” She further wrote, “There is also a deep satisfaction in seeing that the voice of Indian cinema is finding a very well deserved platform on the world stage. Every year, more actors, filmmakers and technicians from India are recognized by the Academy and Indian cinema continues to reach the hearts and homes of people all over the world.”
“I truly believe that cinema, like water, find its level. And, like water, it knows no race, class, border or geography and flows freely. It takes everything in its course: audiences who passionately love or hate it, critics who dissect it, students who immerse themselves in it. Our opinions about films maybe divided, but cinema as a whole is a powerful binding and unifying force”, Alia mentioned in her gratitude post.
Taking a subtle dig at the trolls she wrote, “In a world that can be unsure and fragmented, at a time when the very social media that is meant to connect people ends up dividing them, movies are the glue that binds us.” Well, that’s Alia’s subtle befitting reply to the trolls.
For the unversed, Alia Bhatt was being targeted by trolls and receiving hatred from the people on social media for being star kid.
The sudden demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput led to a heated debate on nepotism on social media and many other star kids alongside Alia were trolled for the same.
