Actor Alia Bhatt is a fan of the K-Pop band BTS. Recently, the actor gave the Bangtan Boys a shout-out after they collaborated for a phone advertisement, using their song “Butter”. Instantly, ARMY flooded her tweet with comments, as they were happy that she was one of them, while trolls accused her of using BTS for clout.
Alia’s tweet read, “Good is NEVER enough! Great is better @samsungindia, @BTS_TWT <3, those smooth Butter moves. #Collab.”
While several fans were overjoyed on seeing Alia Bhatt’s love for BTS, others accused her of using them to gain more prominence. Several fans came to her defence, with one fan even tweeting, “I don’t understand the armys in the comments saying she is using them for clout like SHE IS ALREADY SO POPULAR IN INDIA and second she didn’t say anything bad about them , she is portraying them in a good light so stop being embarassing, don’t interact if u think she is wrong.”
Another fan wrote, “Some of here don’t know the fact that she’s already a very popular star in India and she doesn’t need BTS for any kind of clout, moreover that collab thing is with Samsung as she’s new brand ambassador of it, some people are really obsessed though..Spare her from this!!!!”
Other fans hoped for a collaboration between Alia Bhatt and BTS, saying that it would be an epic crossover.
