Netizens have been trolling Ranbir Kapoor for cracking a joke on the weight gain of pregnant wife Alia Bhatt.
The duo recently held an Instagram Live session to promote their upcoming movie Brahmastra. During the session, when Alia, in response to a question about the promotion of the movie, said they have not “phailoed” [spread] the film, Ranbir pointed at her belly and said that someone had “phailoed” instead.
Netizens subsequently called out Ranbir for being ‘insensitive’. “How can a husband fat-shame his own pregnant wife… Disgusting!!!” Dr Gaurz said in a tweet.
“Only if he [Ranbir] knew the pain and sacrifices a woman makes by carrying a baby in her womb, imagine the things he must be saying in private while his audacity to pass this bold remark publicly!!” RV, a user, said.
Calling Ranbir a toxic person, social media user Akshar said: “I can’t understand how Alia Bhatt tolerates him”.
