Alia Bhatt slams coverage of her pregnancy: ‘I’m a woman, not a package’

Bollywood star Alia Bhatt has hit out at local news about her pregnancy.

The 29-year-old actress – who is expecting her first child with husband Ranbir Kapoor – was critical of one Pink Villa USA Report claiming she planned her pregnancy in a way that would not interfere with her filming commitments.

The report also found that the Gangubai Kathiawadi Star is currently in the UK and her husband “might go” and “take his wife home”.

Bhatt expressed his disappointment at the coverage, writing on Instagram: “We’re still alive in the minds of some people. We still live in there [a] patriarchal world.

“FYI. Nothing has been delayed! Nobody has to pick anyone up. I’m a woman, not a package!

“I don’t need to rest at all, but good to know you’ll have a medical certificate as well. The year is 2022. Can we please get out of this archaic way of thinking! Now, if you’ll excuse me… my shot’s done.”

Along with her comments, Bhatt shared a screenshot of the Pink Villa report, which read: “Supposedly the mum-to-be will be returning to Mumbai in mid-July. It is also reported that Ranbir may travel to the UK to bring his wife home. Alia will rest after returning from her shoot. The reports also suggest that the actress planned her pregnancy in a way that didn’t interfere with any of her commitments. She will finish her films heart of stone and Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani before the end of July.”

Bhatt announced the news of her pregnancy on Monday (June 27) via Instagram.

Sharing photos of her and Kapoor at an ultrasound appointment Dear Zindagi star wrote: “Our baby… is coming soon.”

Bhat and Kapoor married in April 2022. They had been together since 2017.
