Alia Bhatt Reacts to Boycott Bollywood


Alia Bhatt on Friday gave a shoutout to Pathaan. She shared a poster of the movie, Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone’s latest release and wrote on her Instagram Stories, “Because love always wins (heart emoji) What a blast,” followed by several fire emojis. The film released in theatres worldwide on Wednesday and is breaking records at the box office with its whopping collections each day. This is Alia’s first ever reaction on the boycott bollywood trend.

Alia Bhatt has worked with Shah Rukh Khan in Dear Zindagi in which he played her therapist. She has never worked with Deepika Padukone though they share a common factor. Deepika once dated Ranbir Kapoor who is now married to Alia Bhatt.

Not only Alia, “Love wins” was the larger message that many film celebrities including Karan Johar, Pooja Bhatt and Mohd Zeeshan Ayyub, sent out following the success off Pathaan. The early response to the stylish spy thriller appears to be a shot in the arm for Bollywood reeling under the pandemic-induced losses, a series of box-office failures in 2022, and calls for boycott by a section of people on social media and a few politicians and pressure groups.

Karan Johar had written about Pathaan in a similar tweet, “Hits beyond a century!!! ₹100 crore and above in one day! GOAT mega star SRK, visionary and legendary YRF and Adi… Sid, Deepika, John!!! Wow. Love forever trumps hate! Mark this date…” Mohd Zeeshan Ayyub had tweeted, “Love wins and you are love @iamsrk sir… @deepikapadukone superb. #JohnAbraham terrifying. Kudos to the whole team. @yrf #SiddharthAnand Thanks!” Pooja Bhatt had tweeted, “Love in action! #Pathaan. Thank you @iamsrk for far more than the movies.”

Directed by Siddharth Anand, Pathaan is on a record breaking spell with an opening of ₹57 crore at the domestic box office. The screen count was increased looking at the response. The film is currently being screened at 8500 screens across the globe, as per trade analyst Taran Adarsh. It marks Shah Rukh’s return to the silver screen after four years and is his and Deepika’s fourth film together.
