Alia Bhatt's mother will be 'happier in Pakistan'
New Delhi : Actress Alia Bhatt's mother Soni Razdan has courted a fresh controversy with her remarks saying that she would be happier if she moves to Pakistan.
During an interview with Nav Bharat Times, Soni, who has been busy promoting her film No Fathers In Kashmir, was asked to comment on the current scenario of the valley. She said that she often gets labelled as anti-national whenever she expresses her views on the said subject.
She said that people disagree with her thoughts most of the times and ask her to go to Pakistan; and this makes her feel that she should actually take the advice and move as food is good in the neighbouring nation.
"Ab jab main aisi baatein karti hoon toh log mujhe deshdrohi kehkar Pakistan behjna shuru kar dete hain. Kabhi kabhi main sochti hoon ki haan, mujhe Pakistan hi chale jana chahie, main bohat khush rahungi Pakistan jaakar, wahan khana bhi bohat achha hai. Yahan toh bhagate hain log mujhe, bohat baar mujhe logon ne kaha ki tum Pakistan jaao, lekin meri tarah ki soch rakhne wale bohat zyada log hain, isliye mujhe isse koi zyada fark nahi padta hai ki kaun kya kehta hai," Alia's mother told the publication.
Her comment offended many people in social media with some advising her to follow her words and actually shift if she feels Pakistan is better than India.
Meanwhile, Soni has responded to some of the hate tweets, saying that she intends to go to Pakistan for a vacation but she has no desire to shift there permanently.
"Aww flattered to get all this attention from these lovely people. Who seem to be so hot and bothered about me going to Pak for a meal. Just taking a cue from our PM actually who pops in there for tea smtimes ! Sry to disappoint but no intention of moving. I my India too much [sic]," she replied to a person who asked her to leave India.
