However, netizens are having a hard time making peace with Ranbir’s tasteless comment. “If he is saying this on camera, think what he says in private… but he has made loads of such comments with Katrina and Anushka.. and they both give it back to him then and there,” said a user.


“That was a disgusting joke to say to a pregnant woman,” another wrote. Another slammed the actor saying, “I can’t believe he said that! Ranbir is a 40-year-old man child with no common sense. Alia deserves better.” “Wtf was this? who talks like this about his own wife who is pregnant? I still remember his and Katrina’s interview during Jagga Jasoos, he was so disrespectful to her. and this was not funny, we didn’t laugh,” said another.

Talking about Brahmastra, apart from Ranbir and Alia, the film also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna Akkineni and Mouni Roy in pivotal roles. The film will hit theatres on September 9.
