Alia Bhatt breaks the silence on the latest ‘boycott’ campaign going around her latest release ‘Darlings’ on Twitter.

Amidst the latest trend on the micro-blogging site to boycott Alia Bhatt and ‘Darlings’, the ‘Dear Zindagi’ actor has addressed the online trolls and growing hype of the ‘cancel culture’ by social users.

Speaking to a media agency at a promotional outing for the now-released film, Bhatt complained, “Nowadays, you are getting trolled for sneezing, or breathing, or getting out of a car.”

“So am I worried about that? No. Not at all. Am I worried about making a mistake? No. Not at all because if I don’t make a mistake, how am I going to learn? Or how am I going to question?” she detailed.

Bhatt pointed out that it is completely fine to make mistakes or be incorrect, as it only helps a person to grow and improve in the longer run. About the boycott trend, Bollywood A-lister urged that the word ‘boycott’ needs to be boycotted, and the ‘cancel culture’ is something that needs to be cancelled.
