Bollywood newbie Alia Bhatt became a butt of jokes post her maiden appearance at her mentor Karan Johar’s show ‘Koffee With Karan’. The youngest daughter of director Mahesh Bhatt confused the Chief Minister of Maharashtra with the President of India on the talk show and she was mocked for her IQ on the internet.

After all the jokes on Alia Bhatt that spread like wildfire, the 21-year-old actress has bravely shot a video to give it back to the everyone who laughed at her lack of general knowledge.

The video begins with a message that reads – “In 2014, a documentary crew follows Alia Bhatt in the aftermath of her ‘Koffee With Karan’ debacle”.

She then visits a ‘Dumb Belle Mental Gym’, which offers her to take her from “Dolce & Gabbana to ‘Smart like Shabana (Azmi)'”. At the ‘gym’, she reads newspapers and her diet is “three portions of newspapers in the morning” and she is instructed to “skip Page 3”. She is made to brush up her knowledge via music, and she lands on “Koffee With Karan” again and stuns host Karan with her answers.

The 10-minute long documentary film, called ‘Genius of the Year’, has Alia Bhatt acting in it – reacting and sharing how she felt about the ‘aftermath’ of her ‘Koffee With Karan’ debacle. Directed by Shakun Batra, the video also has spoofs of her movie songs. While the song ‘Saturday Saturday’ from Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania has been changed to ‘Faraday Faraday’, another song of Alia, ‘Radha On The Dance Floor’ has been turned into ‘Sodium On The Dance Floor’.

The actress took to Twitter and said, “So after the “Alia Bhatt Jokes” thing.. I decided to FIX my BRAIN !! Check this out #AlB @AllIndiaBakchod.”

She also thanked her friends and family for supporting her.

The video features Alia herself, with appearances by her father and filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, as well as friends and colleagues like Karan Johar, Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra.

Genius of the Year’ is a hilarious spoof video and a must watch for all those who have enjoyed reading Alia Bhatt jokes on the Internet.

Alia Bhatt had become a target of jokes on social media about her general knowledge, but said she is not at all upset and is actually amused by it.

“I don’t get upset at it, I laugh at it. I am the first person to laugh at myself. I always say that I rather be stupid than pretend to be intelligent,” Alia said in an interview earlier.

The video’s end is to watch out for!

Directed by Shakun Batra, “Alia Bhatt – Genius of the Year” is being loved by celebrities like Hrithik Roshan and Abhishek Bachchan as much as by the actress’ fans.

“BRAVO @aliaa08 this is superb! And it’s also @karanjohar ‘s best performance ever,” tweeted Abhishek, while Hrithik posted: “Fell down laughing! Talent wth a twist, @aliaa08 u are sensational.”

Praising it, Farhan Akhtar said: “Now this is funny.. Hahahaha.. Love it. Full points to @aliaa08 @shakunbatra @karanjohar”.

Hansal Mehta called the video “disarmingly cute”, and her “Student Of The Year” co-star Sidharth Malhotra tweeted: “Hahaa brilliant @aliaa08 so endearing n sporting n kudos to you”. (With IANS inputs)

            True. Tanmay Bhatt, producer of AIB (maker of this video), is Alia Bhatt's brother. Enough said.

                Alia Bhatt should concentrate on her acting skills rather than these paid PR activity for her image building.Don't worry Alia..We got what you wanted to convey.You were dumb,have become dumber and no wonder will be the dumbest in the history of Bollywood.
