Alia Bhatt introduced her first being pregnant with Ranbir Kapoor in late June, months after they tied the knot. “Our baby ….. coming soon,” she wrote on social media. Days after the announcement, a report claimed that Ranbir may journey to the UK the place Alia was filming for her Hollywood debut Heart Of Stone, and convey her again as she is pregnant.
Responding to the claims, Alia had slammed, “Meanwhile we still live, in some people’s heads, a patriarchal world. FYI, nothing has gotten delayed. No one needs to pick anyone up. I am a woman, not a parcel. I do not need to rest at all but good to know you’ll have a doctor’s certification as well. This is 2022. Can we please get out of this archaic way of thinking? Now if you would excuse me. My shot is ready.”
Opening up about her anger behind the phrases, Alia informed GOODTimes that she finds such issues extraordinarily outdated and regressive. “If in the garb of writing a positive article if you are actually going to be saying things like ‘oh a woman’s life is now totally going to go topsy turvy’ that’s a bit unfair. You are not saying that about the man, the man is also going to have the child. So, why is it only for the woman?”
“The only reason I reacted is because it was going for a hardcore commentary, so it woke the feminist in me with knives and all guns. It’s not about me personally, you can say whatever the hell you want about me, I dont give shi* but if you are making a commentary on a woman in general, who is actually working since the beginning of (her) pregnancy. That’s what pissed me off. The fact that I don’t respond has made it clear that I have,” she additional added.
Alia just lately appeared in Netflix’s Darlings, alongside Vijay Varma and Shefali Shah. She can be subsequent seen in Ranbir Kapoor’s Brahmastra, releasing on September 9.
