Ranbir Kapoor mocks Alia Bhatt’s pregnancy weight gain, netizens call his joke ‘tasteless’


New Delhi: Actor Ranbir Kapoor’s comment on his pregnant wife Alia Bhatt’s weight gain has created quite a stir on social media. He made the comment during a live session which was held to promote his upcoming film Brahmastra with Alia Bhatt and Ayan Mukerji.

During a live session on the promotion of the film, the Brahmastra team explained why they are not promoting the film much. Alia Bhatt replied, “We will promote the film and we will be everywhere, but if the question you are asking is why we are not a phailod (talking about widespread promotion) everywhere, right now our focus is… ” Ranbir Kapoor quickly pointed to his wife’s wand and said, “well, I can tell someone has phailod (referring to her weight gain), adding that he meant the comment as a joke.” D ‘nice way’ he hinted. Alia was taken aback by the joke but let it fly.

However, netizens are finding it difficult to make peace with Ranbir’s tasteless comment. “If he is saying this on camera, think about what he says in private… but he has made many such comments with Katrina and Anushka… and both of them are coming back at him,” said one user.

“That was a disgusting joke to tell a pregnant woman,” wrote another. Another slammed the actor saying, “I can’t believe he said that! Ranbir is a 40 year old man child with no common sense. Alia deserves better.” “Wtf was that? who talks like that about his own pregnant wife? I still remember his and Katrina’s interview during Jagga Jasoos, he was so disrespectful to her. and that wasn’t funny, we didn’t laugh” said another.

Talking about Brahmastra, apart from Ranbir and Alia, the film also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna Akkineni and Mouni Roy in pivotal roles. The film will hit theaters on September 9.
