Alia Bhatt Discloses Why She Deleted RRR Posts From Instagram
RRR has been a smash hit at the box office since its release last weekend. The film has already become the second most successful Hindi film in history
Digital Desk: A day after it was widely reported that Alia Bhatt had severed connections with RRR director SS Rajamouli due to being given less screen time in the film, the actress resorted to social media to break her silence on the matter. She penned a lengthy letter in her Instagram stories, expressing her gratitude to Rajamouli and expressing how much she enjoyed working on the film’s sets with both Jr NTR and Ram Charan. Alia stated that something as insignificant as removing Instagram photos does not imply dissatisfaction with a person.
The actor wrote, “In today’s randomness I’ve heard that I apparently deleted my RRR posts because I’m upset with the team. I sincerely request everyone not to make assumptions based on something as random as an Instagram grid. I ALWAYS realign old video posts from my profile grid because I prefer it to look less cluttered (sic).
Alia added that she will always cherish being a part of the journey that RRR was. “I am eternally grateful that I got to be a part of the world of RRR. I loved playing Sita. I loved being directed by Rajamouli Sir. I loved working with Tarak and Charan – I loved every single thing about my experience on this film (sic),”
The actor went on to discuss the film’s success and how such rumours tend to stymie the progress of a picture that is supposed to thrive , “The only reason I’m bothering to clarify this is because Rajamouli Sir and the team have put in years of effort and energy to bring this beautiful film to life and I refuse to let any misinformation around the film and experience slide (sic).”
RRR has been a smash hit at the box office since its release last weekend. The film has already become the second most successful Hindi film in history, surpassing Rajamouli’s own Baahubali: The Beginning at the domestic box office. By the end of six days, the film had grossed Rs 672 crore globally, with many trade analysts predicting it to be a Rs 1000 crore plus blockbuster.
Meanwhile, Alia has been doing amazing work in the business, with both critical and box financial successes. Aside from RRR, she recently starred in Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s Gangubai Kathiawadi, which became the highest-grossing woman-led solo film ever, surpassing her own Raazi and Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika.
