Alia Bhatt, who recently announced her pregnancy, responded to a misogynistic news report that claimed that the Gangubai Kathiawadi actress will wrap up filming her ongoing projects, including Heart Of Stone and Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani by mid-July so that her pregnancy does not impact her work commitments, the article also hinted that her husband, actor Ranbir Kapoor is going to travel to the UK to ‘bring his wife home.’ She criticised the news publication on her social media account for being ‘archaic’.

Sharing Alia Bhatt’s Instagram story, Zara mentioned that she can relate to Alia’s experience and said that brands wanted to drop her after she announced her pregnancy. In her post, she wrote, “And I thought only Pakistan thinks like this, specially when brands wanted to drop me off when they got know I was expecting. Becoming pregnant and being an actress makes the society feel you are not GOOD for work anymore. Well, guess what, women are good enough for everything and anything and it’s time the DICTATORS realise so. And we don’t have to prove our motherhood and craft to any patriarchy.”

Durefishan Saleem shared an Instagram story on her social media account and said that people need to stop telling women what to do after their marriage. “We can get married/make babies and still be kick*** fab. Marriage is a part of life, not a halt. Stop telling women that their career goals don’t align well with that (star emoji),” she wrote.
