New Delhi: Soon-to-be parents Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor are promoting their upcoming film Brahmastra. The couple was recently spotted at IIT Bombay, where Alia demonstrated her singing abilities. As the audience applauded, Alia sang the Brahmastra song “Kesariya.” Ranbir, who was sitting next to Alia, also cheered for her as he looked at her adoringly.
Alia had previously posted photos on her Instagram account and joked about finally getting into IIT. “IIT Bombay… here we come!!!” she captioned a series of photos she posted. Thanks to promotions, I can proudly say that I got into IIT (for one hour) on September 9th — BRAHMSTRA.”
Trolls have been targeting the “Love storiyaan” section of the song “Kesariya” since its release. Alia Bhatt responded to the trolls by saying, “Gaana number one pe hai, toh main kyun complaint karun!” (If the song is at the top of the charts, why should I complain?)
Brahmastra director Ayan Mukerji also reacted to the constant trolling and had said in an interview, “We put it with a lot of love, we found it very interesting. We did not find it like elaichi, we thought it was a twist like bahut shakkar me thoda namak jab aata hai, uska ek maza, ek swaad hai (its not like a cardamon in biryani, it’s like salt amid too much sugar, it has its own taste). Because the film is a modern film and the lyrics of the song are so traditional and simple, and this would have been a fun twist. I still feel that in some time, people will actually start enjoying it even more.”
