‘Any kind of criticism is just jealousy…’

Ranbir Kapoor backs pregnant wife Alia Bhatt

It was in April this year that Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor got married. The duo, who has been together for years now, tied the knot in an intimate wedding ceremony held in the balcony of their Bandra home in Mumbai. While the internet was still gushing over their wedding photos, Alia and Ranbir left everyone surprised when they announced the news of the actress’ pregnancy. Amidst all this, Alia and Ranbir’s first film together, Brahmastra also released on the big screen.

It’s been a busy past few months for both Alia and Ranbir and with the actress’ pregnancy, several reports citing different things have also been making the rounds online. Now, Ranbir has backed Alia amidst it all. The actor has heaped praise on his wife, and added that any kind of criticism is just jealousy.

“I think the way she has carried herself through the entire marketing of this film being pregnant, being in the condition that she is – I think you should only be inspired by that. Any kind of criticism is just jealousy and mischief makers and stupidity and we should not take that seriously,” the actor told NDTV in an interview.

Earlier in June this year, Alia had taken to social media to call out a report that claimed Ranbir would be flying to London to bring his wife home. Alia was then shooting for Heart of Stone with Gal Gadot. Alia had immediately taken to Instagram to clear the air surrounding all such reports. “Meanwhile in some people’s heads, we still live in some 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 2022. Can we please get out of this archaic way of thinking,” she had written on her IG Story.

Alia and Ranbir’s latest release, Brahmastra Part One: Shiva has earned over Rs 300 crore at the box office.
