Bhumi Pednekar is currently all geared up for the release of her upcoming film Bala also starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Yami Gautam. The actress is busy promoting Bala as well as her next film Pati Patni Aur Woh with Kartik Aaryan and Ananya Panday. After the trailer of Pati Patni Aur Woh out, a dialogue from the trailer “Biwi se sex maang lein toh hum bhikhari, biwi ko sex na dein toh hum atyachari aur kisi tarah jugaad laga ke usse sex haasil kar lein na toh balatkari bhi hum hain,” has created a trouble for the makers and the actors.
Kartik Aaryan’s fans and the audiences were not happy with this dialogue. People have said that it speaks about marital rape which is not being accepted by society. In an interview with Zoom, Bhumi spoke about the criticism the trailer of Pati Patni Aur Woh received. She said that if they have hurt anybody’s sentiments, they are sorry because that wasn’t the intention. But everybody who is involved in Pati Patni Aur Woh does not belong to that school, does not belong to that thought process.
The Bala actress further said that Mudassar (Aziz, the director) has always celebrated women. Bhumi’s films say a lot about what she feels about her gender and what she is trying to do. They are constantly working towards reducing the gender gap. So, she is not going to be a part of anything that will increase it. She has said ‘no’ to a lot of movies where they were ready to pay her s**t tons of money but she didn’t do those films. Those films have gone on to become massive hits.
Bhumi has always been vocal about her choice of scripts, her characters, and everything. Directed by Amar Kaushik, Bala is all set to hit theaters on 8th November and Pati Patni Aur Woh will hit the screens on 6th December.
