WATCH: Alia Bhatt can laugh at herself, can you?

Talk of being a winner, and Alia Bhatt may well have hit a winner with this one. Since her sensational 'foot-in-mouth' episode on Karan Johar's Koffee with Karan, where she called Maharashtra chief minister Prithviraj Chavan the President of India, and launched more than a 'thousand jokes' directed at her, this Bhatt girl now wants everybody to believe she's made of smarter material.



All India Bak*** (AIB), a group of comedians who maintain a YouTube channel and produce and create satirical/comic videos for the online audience, has teamed with Alia Bhatt, Mahesh Bhatt, Parineeti Chopra, Arjun Kapoor, Soni Razdan, Vishal Dadlani and Karan Johar for a 'documentary' on how Alia tackled the storm of jokes coming her way. We are told she's joined a 'mental gym' which has transformed her into someone as smart as Shabana Azmi!







Interestingly, the video takes up from Alia's 'dumbness' and moves on to point out the smartness of pretentious intelligence -- where she goes back to the couch on Karan's show and answers all questions correctly, leaving the filmmaker dumbfounded (pun intended). Soon, we see her discussing the experience in the confines of her bedroom, only to blurt out something like: "You know, now I feel I can be anything --a doctor, an astronaut or maybe the first female prime minister of India!"



Help is at hand for her with Arjun Kapoor and Karan Johar too pointing out their own 'mistakes'. We see Arjun Kapoor, who starred opposite Alia in the adaptation of Chetan Bhagat's 2 States, reading a joke -- "Alia Bhatt is so dumb, she did a Chetan Bhagat movie."



Karan Johar, mostly blamed for making 'dumb' films, says, "They expect a girl to be hot & clever and poor things, that's too much pressure. More importantly, don't they realise, the cleverer they get, the lesser money I will make!"



Karan's dialogue also takes a dig at the stereotypical perceptions of heroes and heroines in our film industry. "Also, there are hot and clever heroines, they are called heroes!"



Never mind whether you enjoyed those jokes or hated them, this video will surely make you laugh out loud.
