I have an opinion, but I like to keep it to myself: Alia Bhatt

Alia Bhatt


Actress Alia Bhatt has responded to Kangana Ranaut’s criticism regarding celebrities who don’t take a stand on political and social issues by saying that she has an opinion on matters, but she likes to keep it to herself.

Alia was interacting with the media at the fourth edition of Outlook Business magazine’s ‘Women of Worth’ awards here on Wednesday. Kangana recently criticised actors like Ranbir Kapoor, Alia and Ranveer Singh for not voicing their opinions on political topics and for staying aloof from issues concerning the society at large.

 

Commenting on this, Alia said: “I definitely don’t have that ability to speak as candidly as Kangana does and I really respect her for that. Maybe, in a way she is right that sometimes we do hold back because we don’t want to talk unnecessarily about an issue.” “My dad (filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt) always says that there are already so many opinions in the world, so the world can do with one less opinion.”
