Miss Nepal International 2017, Niti Shah, made a huge blunder in Japan when she talked about the education of women in Nepal. She showed how unprepared she was in representing the country in an international arena. But, making mistake is human and, it is the way we learn a lot of things. That is what Niti is being told to do.
I am talking about the suggestion of Miss Nepal 2016, Asmi Shrestha. Asmi wrote a long message to Niti Shah and reminded her about Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt. I din’t know much about Alia Bhatt until I shared Asmi’s suggestion to Niti Shah in my previous post – (Suggestions to Niti Shah from ex-Miss Nepal)
Who is Alia Bhatt and what is Alia Bhatt blunder?
Alia Bhatt is the daughter of a well known Bollywood film director, Mahesh Bhatt. Being from an affluent family, Alia had lived a life in luxury and she could afford to be dumb and clueless about the majority of India. That was until she went to a TV interview and she made dumb mistake in 2014.
When the ‘Koffee with Karan’ program host, Karan Johar asked Alia general knowledge question, and she gave a wrong name of the president of India. That created a huge mockery and jokes on her dumbness. A lot of meme and jokes were made on Alia and she was mocked in every social media at that time. Here is one of them:
Alia dealt with the problem in a very smart way. She made effort to be smarter and she overcame the image of a dumb actress to an smart one. These days, she is highly respected and adored for her acting skills and her skills in dealing with people.
Here is what Alia did at that time: Genius of the Year:
Asmi says Niti can learn from Alia and make her weakness a strength.
The question is, will Niti be able to do that?
