When the trailer of Udta Punjab was released, both critics and fans loved it. Alia, who plays a Bihari migrant in the film, was appreciated for her de-glammed look.
However, one ‘open letter’ to the Highway star claimed her look was rather ‘stereotypical’ and wrong, further criticising the portrayal of a person hailing from the northern state.

Though Alia Bhatt never mentioned the open letter, a recent tweet makes fans wonder whether it is a veiled reply to it. She wrote, “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, plus a social media overreaction.”
