Alia Bhatt is all set to be seen in a de-glam avatar in Udta Punjab. While the Kapoor & Sons star has been applauded for her acting prowess, she has also faced backlash for stereotyping Biharis in the upcoming Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor-Khan starrer. However, the actor seems unabashed by the criticism she receives for her work.
“I believe that with positive there has to be negative. If there is no negative then it’s very boring and that means that you’re a boring person. If everybody likes you it means that you are super boring,” Times of India quoted Alia as saying. “There has to be somebody who does not like you. I am very happy that there are people who don’t like me. I am even happier when I convert the dislikes to likes,” she added.

Alia also shared that she doesn’t get defensive about her work. “Well, when it comes to my work, I don’t get defensive after criticism comes my way. If it is something that will hurt me then it will hurt me, but I won’t get defensive about it,” she added. “I’ll never say that you’re wrong; I’ll say … okay I have messed up. Of course, I will sulk for 15 minutes, but then I will be up and about again.”
