She became the butt of all jokes following her appearance on Karan Johar's chat show, but now actress Alia Bhatt has taken a potshot at herself via an entertaining video titled "Alia Bhatt - Genius of the Year", which is gaining popularity on online social media.

"So after the 'Alia Bhatt Jokes' thing...I decided to FIX my BRAIN! Check this out," the sporting Alia posted on Twitter Monday morning.

A brief description of the YouTube video, uploaded by comedy collective All India Bakchod (AIB), reads: "What did Alia Bhatt do after the internet turned her into the butt of all jokes? A documentary crew found out..."

The video features Alia herself, with appearances by her father and filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, as well as friends and colleagues like Karan Johar, Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra.

It begins with a message that reads - "In 2014, a documentary crew follows Alia Bhatt in the aftermath of her 'Koffee With Karan' debacle".

The video, featuring Alia as herself, is a funny fictional take on what the 21-year-old went through after her general knowledge, rather the lack of it, was known to the world when she called "Prithviraj Chauhan" as the country's President on Karan's show.

In the video, she is seen talking about how "hurt" she was when instead of searching for "Alia Bhatt hot pics" on Google, people started looking for "Alia Bhatt jokes".

She then visits a 'Dumb Belle Mental Gym', which offers her to take her from "Dolce & Gabbana to 'Smart like Shabana (Azmi)'". At the 'gym', she reads newspapers and her diet is "three portions of newspapers in the morning" and she is instructed to "skip Page 3". She is made to brush up her knowledge via music, and she lands on "Koffee With Karan" again and stuns host Karan with her answers.

The video's end is to watch out for!

Directed by Shakun Batra, "Alia Bhatt - Genius of the Year" is being loved by celebrities like Hrithik Roshan and Abhishek Bachchan as much as by the actress' fans.

"BRAVO @aliaa08 this is superb! And it's also @karanjohar 's best performance ever," tweeted Abhishek, while Hrithik posted: "Fell down laughing! Talent wth a twist, @aliaa08 u are sensational."

Praising it, Farhan Akhtar said: "Now this is funny.. Hahahaha.. Love it. Full points to @aliaa08 @shakunbatra @karanjohar".

Hansal Mehta called the video "disarmingly cute", and her "Student Of The Year" co-star Sidharth Malhotra tweeted: "Hahaa brilliant @aliaa08 so endearing n sporting n kudos to you".
