    Well, there might be very few who don’t remember Alia Bhatt ’s iconic goof-up at her first Koffee With Karan episode. The actress had replied to the then President Of India ’s name to be Prithviraj Chavan when it was actually Pranab Mukherjee. Alia was mercilessly trolled soon after that but it seems like she has come a long way now and recently at an event, was quick to answer the name of the current President Of India correctly.

    Talking about the same, when Alia Bhatt was recently made to recall the quiz fiasco at the Indian Express event, she was quick to name the current President Of India correctly to be “Droupadi Murmu Ji.” The Raazi actress furthermore stated that she loves it when people think that she is dumb or unintelligent. While being quipped on whether she has managed to evolve from those initial days, Alia said, “I love it when people think that I am unintelligent, or that ‘oh she is so dumb.’ I genuinely do, because they make so many memes on me which add to the popularity, and then it’s like you are loving my movies. So there is possibly something that I am doing right in the movie business...I also want to put out this message for young girls-- general knowledge and bookish intelligence in my opinion is not intelligence. To survive in a world, you have to have a certain emotional intelligence, which is possibly the highest form of intelligence.”

    Alia Bhatt also admitted in the same interview that she hardly remembers what she had learned in her school textbooks but instead had a profound learning process with her interaction with the teachers and her classmates. The Student Of The Year actress revealed that she never felt the need to do so since she knew that she will be entering a creative field. However, on a concluding note, Alia confessed that she knew the President Of India back in the year 2013 but was just confused when she was put into the spot of the Rapid Fire round.
