Alia Bhatt’s recent Instagram story, where she extended her support to Ranbir Kapoor’s ex-flame, Katrina Kaif, for her upcoming film ‘Merry Christmas,’ has sparked a flurry of discussions among netizens. The actress, visibly excited about Katrina’s project, shared the film’s trailer and expressed her enthusiasm, stating, ‘Okay this is very very cool.I am excited. Just must say.’
However, this gesture from Alia drew attention and comparisons from netizens who pointed out the absence of a similar show of support towards Deepika Padukone, for her film ‘Fighter.’
A Reddit post showcasing Alia’s supportive message for Katrina’s film raised eyebrows, questioning the disparity in Alia’s social media gestures toward the two leading actresses. Netizens were quick to notice the contrast, pondering why Alia didn’t exhibit the same level of enthusiasm or promotion for Deepika’s project, especially when the teaser for ‘Fighter’ was released.
One netizen tweeted, “Genuinely nice to see her cheering on Katrina and Co. No such post for Fighter?”
Twitter erupted with reactions, with one user acknowledging Alia’s encouragement for Katrina while expressing surprise over the absence of a similar post for ‘Fighter.’ The discussions delved into the dynamics of Bollywood relationships and speculated on the underlying reasons for this apparent discrepancy in Alia’s social media engagement.
Netizens flooded the comment section on Reddit, sharing varied opinions on Alia’s social media behavior. Some attributed the selective support to Alia’s eagerness to showcase her backing for Katrina, while others suggested that personal equations might play a role in such social media interactions.
Comments ranged from expressing hopes for Alia to extend support to Deepika’s future endeavors to humorous takes on the situation, implying that Alia’s support for Katrina might be driven by prior experiences or considerations.
