Alia Bhatt is an exceptional actress, who recently wrapped up a Hollywood action film Heart Of Stone with Gal Gadot, and is gearing up for the release of her first film as a producer, Darlings. And yet, as far as the mainstream media goes, the actress is a mother-to-be and has a pregnancy glow. Reports over the last two months have all been about Alia Bhatt hiding her baby bump in loose clothes or flaunting her baby bump.
This is not the first time actresses have been scrutinised for their dressing choices, eating habits, weight gain, and pregnancy photos shoot. Aishwarya Rai, Anushka Sharma, Neha Dhupia, and Sonam Kapoor all have been put through the same ringer. Similarly, Alia’s accomplishments have been recused to the dresses she wears and the glow on her skin, as the mother-to-be. Instead of talking about her film, reports are still focused on what she will be doing for her baby.
Back in June 2022, Alia and Ranbir announced they are expecting through an Instagram post. Ever since fans and mainstream media have been obsessed with every detail of the actress’s life. Earlier this month, Alia attended the trailer launch of her upcoming film Darlings, and the film was overshadowed by media reports of how Alia Bhatt was trying to hide her baby bump at the trailer launch in a yellow dress and in a loose salwar suit after the launch event.
So, when we got the chance to talk to Alia Bhatt, we had to ask about the silly reportage. Considering how the mainstream media is convinced that she is hiding or flaunting her baby bump, does it ever get annoying? To which she quipped, “Well, it’s such an entertaining question. I’m not annoyed at all. Doesn’t even make my eyelids bat.”
However, nothing changes the fact that she has all the right to be annoyed. Many of her fans have been and so are we, because it’s 2022 and clearly people have completely missed the memo. The actress added that it is great that a new generation of thinks such reportage is outdated. “Which is great, it basically shows that the generation of today that’s going to take us forward will not be the same.”
Reacting to the reports, she added, “I think they’ve run out of new things to write about me. So when I got married, I was newly-wed Alia. Now, I’m pregnant Alia, pregnancy glow Alia, or mom-to-be Alia, baby bump hiding Alia and, baby bump flaunting Alia. Well, I don’t even want to give it attention.”
The actress added, “It’s such a personal choice like any clothes are clothes. Like I don’t get it. What do you mean by flaunting?”
Alia also said that it’s time to retire such words to describe an actress who is expecting. Alia concluded by saying, “It’s a deep appeal. Please stop.”
Darlings led by Alia Bhatt is set to release on Netflix on August 5, 2022. The film directed by Jasmeet R Reena also stars Shefali Shah, Vijay Verma in leading roles.
