Alia Bhatt is not fazed by being called stupid.

Is Alia Bhatt stupid? Well, if you check social media, the answer would be: yes. But here’s the thing, she is not at all disturbed by it, and thinks it is funny. “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,” said the 21-year-old actress.


The jokes started when Alia appeared on Koffee with Karan with co-stars Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra. She and Varun both answered incorrectly when asked the name of the President of India; Varun said Manmohan Singh and Alia tried with Prithviraj Chavan. Siddharth answered right with: Pranab Mukherjee.


Also said, is that Alia’s movie success has made her arrogant. She denied being told that. “Rather people are asking me ‘why I am not excited as Highway and 2 States both have done well? How are you so normal?’”


Ask this next person anything about football, you will find him anything but dumb. It is any super-fan’s dream to be included in the promotion of the upcoming FIFA World Cup, and Bollywood actor-producer John Abraham will be living that dream. Sony Six has chosen John for their campaign that will hype the tournament in India.


“It is a known fact that John shares a great deal of love and passion for the sport and it is through this partnership that we would like to build anticipation for the upcoming FIFA event,” said the channel in a release on Wednesday. The 41-year-old actor may be joined by football stars from England, France, Portugal and France for the campaign.


The 20th FIFA World Cup will take place in Brazil from June 12 to July 13 this year.
