Starting Friday this week, Alia Bhatt will embark on a journey as a producer alongside an actress. Ella’s dark comedy drama Ella’s Darlings premieres on Friday. The film is also produced by Alia Bhatt along with Shah Rukh Khan’s wife, Gauri Khan. While the story of Parvez Sheikh has been directed by Jasmeet Reen. Along with Alia in Darlings, Shefali Shah, Vijay Verma, Roshan Mathew, Rajesh Sharma, Vijay Maurya and Santosh Juvekar have major roles. However, Darlings, which arrives on Friday, will stream directly on Netflix’s OTT platform rather than in theaters.
Alia Bhatt’s first film as a producer before the film’s release has started to receive criticism. What criticism, it can also be called a negative campaign against the film. Negative campaigns against Bollywood movies are now the new normal and it goes without saying why there is an atmosphere on social media against Darlings. Nepotism and being the producer of Shahrukh’s wife have a Hindu-Muslim agenda among all the reasons for the protest. But there seems to be another fun reason against the Darlings. This is new.
Alia Bhatt plays the title role in Darlings.
Is Bollywood inciting violence against men?
In fact, a section on Twitter opposes the Alia Bhatt and Shefali Shah movie just because Darlings is trying to promote domestic violence against men in society. With all the hashtags on Twitter about the Darlings protest, people are sharing reactions saying that domestic violence against men in Bollywood has always been just a joke. One user on Twitter wrote: Everyone should boycott Alia Bhatt for making an adulterous movie like Darlings. For Bollywood, atrocities against men have always been a matter of joke.
Meanwhile, one user pointed the nationwide silence at Darlings rather than the Alia movie. In a very strict tone, the user wrote that Alia Bhatt is promoting domestic violence against men by producing and acting in a movie like Darlings and the entire nation is silent. People are sharing news screenshots related to criticism of the movie. Many memes are being shared and the corresponding section seems to be showing through them that domestic violence against men has become a serious matter. Some people even said that they imagine how much fuss will be created if the gender of the characters in this story is changed. The liberal Bollywood lobby will be at the forefront of creating hi touba.
Why would Aamir Khan be happy to be targeted by Darlings?
Surprisingly, all the hashtags on Twitter are at the top of the trend against Alia Bhatt’s movie. By the way, due to Darlings’ arrival at Alia Bhatt’s film in the name of Bollywood protest, Aamir Khan must have breathed a sigh of relief. Actually, Aamir Khan Kareena Kapoor’s Lal Singh Chaddha will be released in theaters next week. But after the trailer for the film, there is a historic outcry against Aamir’s film on all social platforms. Even those who post movie-related polls on Twitter, more people are seen against Lal Singh Chaddha. With the arrival of Darlings in the middle, the creators of Lal Singh Chaddha must have breathed a sigh of relief.
Laal Singh Chaddha will be released on August 11. The film is an official remake of Forrest Gump, starring Tom Hanks and Robin Wright. By the way, Aamir Khan’s film is not a solo box office release. Aanand L Roy’s Akshay Kumar’s leading man, Raksha Bandhan, famous for making entertaining family dramas, will also premiere on the same day.
