Ranbir Kapoor’s recent remark about Alia Bhatt’s weight gain enraged some social media users, who chastised him for joking about his pregnant wife. The actor has now apologised for his actions. When Ranbir and Alia were promoting Ayan Mukerji’s upcoming film Brahmastra, he made the remark. In a recent media interview, after being asked about his ‘joke,’ which drew criticism, the actor issued a clarification.
Ranbir, Alia, and Ayan were recently spotted together in a YouTube live session to promote Brahmastra. Ranbir and Alia were asked why they weren’t actively promoting their film. A video of the interaction was shared on Reddit and Twitter, with Alia saying, “We will promote the film, and we will be everywhere, but if the question you are asking is why we are not phailoed (spreading) everywhere, right now our focus is…” Ranbir interrupted her in mid-sentence and said, “Well, I can say somebody has phailoed (referring to her weight gain).”
Although he later clarified that he was joking, Ranbir’s remark enraged social media users, who accused him of ‘fat-shaming’ his wife.
