Amidst the buzz surrounding her pregnancy announcement, Alia Bhatt found herself posting an angry rant on Instagram against an article by Pink Villa USA that used a condescending tone while writing about the Bollywood actress.
The article which claims that the newlywed’s husband, Ranbir Kapoor would travel to Britain to bring his wife home is the centre of controversy. Alia lashes out at the patriarchal narrative used in the piece where she is associated with being a “parcel” that needs to be brought home.
Her frustration with false news and rumours circulating in the media is very evident as she discredits certain claims made by media houses about her professional commitments being affected.
Her outburst is very understandable as being in the public eye, such actresses are subjected to baseless rumours and misogynistic remarks very often.
It can take a toll on one’s mental health and might also trigger mental health disorders. A mindful and considerate digital networking environment is healthy and what everyone should aim to maintain.
