Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt made a smash debut at the 2023 Met Gala.
Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt has angered netizens after her MET gala outfit designer Prabal Gurung revealed he met her through Karan Johar.
Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt, who often comes under fire for allegedly being ‘favoured’ by filmmaker Karan Johar, is once again facing anger from netizens over her first appearance at the MET Gala. It all started when designer Prabal Gurung, in a lengthy Instagram post, revealed that he first met Alia at Karan Johar’s 40th birthday party.
“I had heard rave reviews about him through him and my brother Pravesh, who was assisting Karan in his first film,” read part of Prabal’s post. This particular revelation from Prabal has left netizens divided on social media. A Reddit post claiming, “Prabal Gurung’s Instagram post confirms KJO is the reason he invited Alia to the Met Gala,” has gone viral across the internet, with netizens voicing varying opinions.
One user wrote: “So they’ve been planning her Met Gala debut for 10 years?” Another commented, “Thank you Prabal for this enlightening message! No wonder KJo fell silent.” However, a section of the Internet also supported Alia. “I guess Alia and Prabal have been close for a long time and it was obvious he had invited her over as they are friends. I remember seeing them together in the photo below when Sid Alia left for their vacation New Year’s Eve is from New York, 2016. She probably debuted this year because she wants to get some attention in West with her Hollywood project, Heart of Stone, to be released in 2023.”
In the season finale of Koffee With Karan 7, Karan Johar’s chat show saw Tanmay Bhatt, Danish Sait, Kusha Kapila and Niharika NM grill him. They even questioned Karan about his repeated mentions of Alia Bhatt on his chat show. While responding to it, the filmmaker revealed what Alia told him about it.
Karan said, “I have to be very aware because honestly Alia and I discussed this. She said, ‘Karan, I don’t want to sound ungrateful, but you have to stop talking about me. I’m like, okay, this is coming from the horse’s mouth itself, so I have to shut my mouth about it.”
Alia Bhatt was launched by Karan Johar with her 2012 film Student of the Year. It also starred Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra. Alia has made several films with Karan under his Dharma Productions.
