Recently, a social media user took the help of AI to dress up Alia Bhatt as Barbie. Along with that, her husband Ranbir Kapoorfeatured as her boyfriend Ken.
Taking to his IG handle, the user shared the video, saying, “I guess ranbir and alia are the best for this role if they ever make #barbie in bollywood- made with ai , results didn’t came out that perfect but still uploading.”
As soon as he shared the same, likes and comments poured in from all sides. A fan wrote, “Dammm so good..Aloo is looking like a barbie frr…Blonde hair suits her..And RK looks very much like Ryan gosling.. Perfect pair.” Another user commented, “Damn this looks so good.” “blonde hairstyle suits alia so much,” wrote a third fan. Another comment read, “Now this is the Barbie I wanna watch.”
Going back to RARKPK, in a chat with a leading entertainment portal, Karan Johar opened up on why Alia’s character Rani is seen wearing only sarees in the movie. He stated that sarees are the biggest gift that we have received from our Indian culture. He also went on to add that modernity has nothing to do with what one wears and we need to stop equating it with modern dresses only. He further added that he has met so many well-read, travelled and empowered women and they all dress up in sarees and in case of Rani, while she studied abroad, her character was strongly influenced by her mother and grandmother (played by Churni Ganguly and Shabana Azmi respectively), hence the sarees.
Karan also added that Alia strongly related to the character of Rani, which is why she could portray her with such finesse and panache.
