As allegations surface that Alia Bhatt ‘copied’ Deepika Padukone Cannes 2019 look for her latest shoot, the actor’s supporters have come to her defence
Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone are quite friendly with one other, despite the fact that Alia’s husband, Ranbir Kapoor, was once engaged to Deepika. Alia’s recent shoot for a magazine, which many feel was ‘copied’ from Deepika’s 2019 Cannes look, is the latest example of netizens pitting one against the other.
Deepika turned attention in a neon green tulle dress at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival. Deepika’s followers have been relentlessly trolling her for ‘copying’ Alia after she donned a similar dress to a magazine shoot. Twitter user: “Alia Bhatt is never beating the’she’s trying to be deepika padukone‘ allegations I fear and we’re here for it.” A third supporter chimed in, “Even the colour is stolen, who is insecure now?.” As one commenter put it, “How hard she tries, she can never beat DP.”
A subset of her supporters, however, argued that Alia actually enjoys the look. To paraphrase one of her many adoring fans: “She likes tulle dress, she wore this way back in 2018, technically, this style isn’t new for her…” as if you all are completely abnormal. Each of these women is beautiful. A second voice chimed in, “You guys just woke up to say ‘Alia This Alia That’ and sleep?”
Both Alia and Deepika were recently ridiculed for posting photos from the Oscars online before Alia’s Met Gala presentation. The notions of a competition between the two were put to rest, however, when Deepika complimented Alia’s flawless appearance at the event.
