Alia Bhatt's mother, veteran actor Soni Razdan recently slammed a troll who questioned her on her British passport. Stating that her father was an Indian and that she has lived in the country since she was a three-month-old baby, Razdan hit out a tweet that read, "I do actually. My father is Indian. Lived in India since I was 3 months old. Pay taxes. Hold an Overseas Citizen of India card. If my hard earned income is good enough to be used to better this nation then I have a right to voice my opinions too. #VoteOutHate"
The troll had used defamatory words against her and had said: "Get lost British citizen ...u have no place in India to preach."
Prior to this, Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut's sister Rangoli Chandel also hit out at Alia Bhatt and Soni Razdan for owning British passports. "These non-Indians who are living off this land, using and abusing its people and its resources, lying about intolerance and spreading hatred, time to think about their agenda and not to get carried away with their provocations", read her tweet.
For those unaware, Alia Bhatt and Soni Razdan hold a British passport and she cannot only cast her vote for the same reason. The only way the two of them will be able to do so will be if they give up their British passport for Indian citizenship.
Meanwhile, on the work front, the veteran actress was last seen in 'No Father's in Kashmir'. No Fathers in Kashmir had a tumultuous journey to the theatres, facing problems in getting a Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) clearance. It was initially offered an 'A' certificate but the makers protested. On March 11, following two hearings in December and January, the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT) announced the film fit for U/A certification.
