Bollywood Actress Alia Bhatt is among the new list of celebs, who received invites to be part of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences this year. Just a day after the Oscars Academy shared the full list of invitees comprising celebs from the entertainment fraternity throughout the world, Alia shared a statement on social media, saying she’s “honoured” to have been chosen.
“I thank the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences for inviting me to be a member of the Academy. I feel honoured and humbled,” read the actor’s post. The Academy has also sent invites to actor Hrithik Roshan, documentary filmmakers Nishtha Jain and Amit Madheshiya, designer Neeta Lulla, casting director Nandini Shrikent, visual effects supervisors Vishal Anand and Sandeep Kamal this year.
Actress concluded her post on a beautiful note, describing films as the force that binds people from across the world together: “In a world that can be unsure and fragmented, at a time when the very social media that is meant to connect people ends up dividing them, movies are the glue that binds us.”
