In an interview with Indian Express, Alia Bhatt’s half-sister Pooja Bhatt was asked about how she handles rumours surrounding Alia’s alleged affairs, to which she replied, “Like I took rumours about me. What was true didn’t bother me. What was not true didn’t bother me. And she is a Bhatt after all, and a much-improved Bhatt in that sense. I think that this is her time in the sun. We should just let that young girl be and enjoy her life because I think she is doing her job of entertaining India and the world really well. So, what she does or does not do in her personal life is really her problem. How she chooses to lead her life is her problem. My father and me have a different approach to it. She has a different approach to it. So, I think we should just let people be who they are.”
Well, we totally agree with Pooja’s views and we are looking forward to seeing more of this “much-improved Bhatt” both on-screen as well as off-screen.

Has Kriti Sanon opted out of 'Womaniya'? Deets inside
Kriti Sanon has many exciting projects in her kitty due to which she has been facing a lot of date issues regarding the shoot of each film. Recently, a report suggested that the actress, who had recently signed ‘Womaniya‘ co-starring Taapsee Pannu has opted out of the project.
Now, a report in DNA has rubbished all the rumors regarding the same. The source said, “Kriti has not yet opted out of the film. It’s true that there are date issues, but the actress and her team are trying to work things out. They are constantly in touch with the producers — Phantom Films (primarily filmmaker Vikas Bahl, as he is more involved with this movie), but are yet to figure out a solution.” (Also Read:O Womaniya…How our actresses are bringing a much-needed paradigm shift)
The source added, “When Kriti and Taapsee signed the biopic, it was supposed to go on floors this April and wrap up by June. Both the actresses had given their dates, but the project failed to take off and got pushed further.”
Another source told to the daily, “The team felt it would be too hot to shoot during summer, so they postponed it further to September. Kriti had not signed anything then, but soon Housefull 4 and Panipat happened. Taapsee, too, had committed her dates from September to other films and the makers of Womaniya were finding it difficult to get both the heroines in a similar time frame.”
The source concluded, “Kriti will be free only around next April. She has already conveyed it to the makers and told them to go ahead with someone else if they have to. But Vikas and Tushar are keen on having her on board, so they are figuring out the dates and checking if they can shoot in April next year. It might get tricky again weather-wise, but that’s the only solution.”
