Alia Bhatt, apart from being a center of jokes and trolls, has also managed to become an impressive figure for audiences in such a young age. In the raging debate of feminism and anti-feminism, Bollywood actresses have also been made target of the intense discussions.
With respect to feminism, Alia Bhatt was also asked about her stance on the topic, she said;
“Yes, of course. A feminist is someone who believes in equal rights, and I, of course, believe in that, like many like-minded people. In a way, I should take that [statement] back, because even talking about it is like participating in it. So, I have actually changed that [the statement] around to say that I am a feminist and I do believe in equal rights. Whenever I’m asked about it, I will always speak about [feminism] in its true form, so that people can hear about it from time to time.”
Alia Bhatt was, previously, targeted for her anti-feminist behavior. However, the 23-year-old took the opportunity to come clean about the issue.
“What I meant to say [with my earlier statement] was that I am not actively participating [in strengthening women empowerment], which people do actively. So, I am not campaigning for or participating, which I would like to do as well whenever I get the opportunity. However, I do believe in it.
“People are very pro about women having equal rights. I genuinely believe that there will be real equality when this is not a question anymore. Whenever the question of equality disappears is when we will have attained true equality. So, I am waiting for that time. It’s a process and it will take time. We will get there, and I completely believe in that.”
Finally, Alia has decided to spark some intense positive conversations for the media too.
