Alia is often teased by fans for her lack of general knowledge after she failed to name the president of India on Johar's show but this is the first time that the actress has joked about the issue.
The video, directed by Shakun Batra of 'Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu' fame and uploaded by a comedy podcast, shows Alia joining a mental training gym to become well versed with general knowledge.
The 10-minute video also features Alia's filmmaker father Mahesh Bhatt, mother Soni Razdan, '2 States' star Arjun Kapoor, actress Parineeti Chopra and Johar.
The end of the video shows 21-year-old 'Highway' star breaking down after answering all the questions asked by Johar.
Alia has previously admitted she likes the various memes and trolls about her on social networking sites and jokes poked at her.
