Aishwarya Rai Bachchan pokes fun at Alia Bhatt’s “privileges” in a viral video from the past, prompting internet users to speculate what the actress will have to say about her husband
This latest viral video is another proof that celebrities’ words from the past can come back to haunt them. An old video of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, reportedly dissing Alia Bhatt for her fortune of having ‘only wonderful possibilities which are there practically on her lap’.
With the description “When #AishwaryaRaiBachchan took a sly dig at #AliaBhatt’s nepotistic privilege,” a tape from an old interview has been shared and has already received over 180K views.
Aishwarya had told her, “I have said this to her also, ‘It’s fantastic for you,'” as heard in the video clip. Karan (Johar) has been there for her from the start, and having an established network like that on your side must make anything seem easier. For the longest time, you can have everything planned out. The woman beamed and grinned. As an actor, it must be wonderful to know that nothing but nice things lie in store for you.
But what’s nice is that she’s doing fantastic job, and great possibilities keep falling into her lap,” she had said.
Social media users are questioning whether or not Ash was making fun of the actress or merely “stating the facts” in the footage. “She is spitting facts,” a supporter wrote.
It took courage for her to say it in such a courteous way,” commented another. Like it!
She positively trolled Alia, another person chimed in.
Others, meanwhile, jumped to Alia’s defense, mocking Aishwarya for being “jealous” of the actress’s success. While some defended her husband Abhishek Bachchan, others poked fun at him, saying things like, “he got opportunity on a platter routinely since two decades!! but would never amount to anything compared to Alia Bhatt (a critically acclaimed and movie office sensation).
“Even if someone gets the best opportunities not everyone can act n make a mark for themselves,” one Twitter user said. In the same way that her spouse, despite being afforded every conceivable advantage, has failed to become a superstar despite twenty years in the business. To say that Alia is the most talented actress in the industry would be an understatement.
The “opportunities” that were sitting on her lap while she was @SanjayLeelaB’s muse have apparently been forgotten by her. There’s a limit to how much we can value opportunities,” someone else added.
Babe, he received the best of opportunities too, but you know where he is in the business.
Another commented, “In ash’s case she married a Nepokid, who was given opportunities over & again, even flops after flops, while rearing a prospective nepokid. This is an instance of, when you point a finger at someone to devalue their talent & hardwork, you point aleast 3 back at yourself. “People who live in glass houses.”
Ash’s next project is the April release of ‘Ponniyin Selvan 2,’ a sequel to Mani Ratnam’s Tamil blockbuster.
