Alia Bhatt Responds to 'Assumptions' About Her Udta Punjab Role

"For those who make assumptions based on what they have seen in the trailer, it is better for us to keep quiet and not say anything because whatever people are assuming, especially the person in question here, is assuming from the trailer, which could also possibly not be true," said Alia

Highlights

  • Alia Bhatt plays a Bihari migrant in Udta Punjab
  • Do not make assumptions based on the trailer: Alia
  • Abhishek Chaubey's Udta Punjab will release on June 17
Actress Alia Bhatt's role of a Bihari migrant in Udta Punjab has been criticised by a few. However, Alia said that people should wait for the film before forming assumptions based on the trailer.
Abhishek Chaubey's Udta Punjab, which also stars Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh, highlights Punjab's drug problem and related issues.
Actress Neetu Chandra had written an open letter to Abhishek and Alia for the way the people of Bihar have been portrayed in Udta Punjab.
"For those who make assumptions based on what they have seen in the trailer, it is better for us to keep quiet and not say anything because whatever people are assuming, especially the person in question here, is assuming from the trailer, which could also possibly not be true," said Alia.
Alia, 23, said that people always make assumptions merely on the basis of a trailer, which is nothing but a glimpse of what the film is going to be.
"We always make assumptions before we really see the full and final project. The trailer is just a hint while the film is the real content. So, after seeing the film if people have the same problem, then it is correct to justify. Before that, we have to just wait," added Alia.
Udta Punjab is scheduled to release on June 17.
