Actor Bijay Anand is playing the role Alia BhattIn a recent announcement for a wedding dress, the father backed the actor in a campaign that caused controversy. In this bridal dress statement, Alia questions the tradition ‘Kanyadan’ (Where the father gives his daughter for marriage), she is asking ‘what to give’.
This particular statement provoked conversation online, with many welcoming customs and traditions fresh, claiming that others were denigrating them. Bijay now questioned why Alia is being targeted for the ad. “As actors, we trust the directing, writing and production departments to do the right thing and not to confuse us. I am not an expert on this subject, so, they must remember the relevance and accuracy of the subject. Also, everyone has their own interpretation of the subject. Each has their own opinion on the subject. There are hundreds of scholars out there. If we are to be very intelligent, we must be scientists, ”he told the Bombay Times.
He also talked about looking at the ad from the right angle. “Why don’t you see the fact that she says ‘Kanya ka man karo (respect women)’. Again, this is your choice; I’m not blaming anyone for it, but we must remember that hatred leads to more hatred. In the big picture, when you deal big about small things , It grows into something else. She’s a little girl and says what the director says, but you’re going to go ahead and troll her. I think actors, especially girls, are the most gentle target.
In a statement directed by Abhishek Varman, Alia, As she sat in the porch with the groom, she mentioned to each member of her family – grandmother, father and mother – and how much they loved her. However, she resisted being considered temporary in the ‘other’ and family, even though everyone loved her dearly. “Is it something I should donate? Why only Kanyadan? “She asks in an internal monologue. She was shocked when her mother-in-law and father-in-law even gave their son. Everyone laughed, and the couple got married.
While many appreciate questioning ancient traditions, this is not exactly the case even in a section of social media. Actor Kangana Ranaut wrote a lengthy post that women are worshiped in scriptures and there is no harm in seeing them as a ‘valuable source of existence’.
In the title of her post, Kangana wrote, “Humble request to all brands ద్దు .. Do not use religion, minority, majority politics to sell goods”. Stop manipulating ideas and statements that cleverly divide innocent consumers … “
Alia is part of the bridal wear brand on the workfront and has previously shot an ad. She is now busy with Ranveer Singh shooting Karan Johar’s Rocky Rani Prem Kahani. She has RRR and Brahmastra with Ranbir Kapoor in her pipeline. She will soon start shooting for Farhan Akhtar’s Zee Le Zara with Priyanka Chopra and Katrina Kaif.
