Karan Johar has the gift of the gab. On the recent episode of Koffee With Karan, he broached the topic with Alia Bhatt about the latest controversy around Ranbir Kapoor being a toxic life partner.
To give my readers a brief background, in a recent beauty tutorial video, Alia mentioned that her husband doesn’t like it when she wears lipstick and tells her to wipe it off. Though Alia said that the reason he does it is cos he likes her natural look of her lips, but lo and behold! This gave the social media fodder to call him overbearing and even ‘toxic’.
Ala elaborates that even though Ranbir is not on social media, yet they are often trolled for the way they live their lives. She says, “I have a very candid way of speaking. So, when I talk about anything in my life, I like to imitate the person, give anecdotes, make it personal. I feel a lot of things get picked out of context, which happened recently with the video. My team told me ‘ye kuch out of hand jaara hai.’ I was like theek hai jaane do. Then I realise that there was a serious article written about how he was a toxic man and I thought ‘are we serious?’ There are many issues in the world to give more attention to.”
Continuing, she states, “The only reason I feel bad is because he is genuinely the opposite….there is a line which I think is being crossed but you cannot say anything about it. Ranbir says this, ‘Alia the audience owns you, they can say whatever the hell they want about you, as long as your movies are doing well, please don’t complain sitting in your apartment in Bandra.”
