#BoycottAliaBhatt trends on Twitter for allegedly glorifying domestic violence against men

Mumbai (Maharashtra): Alia Bhatt is finally donning the hat of a producer with her latest Netflix release ‘Darlings’. The film starring Alia herself along with Shefali Shah and Vijay Verma talks about a love marriage that turns abusive and Alia’s quest to save herself from it with the help of her mother. The film was released on July 5 and has been receiving positive reviews so far but many do not agree with the content of the film.

Many netizens have come to Twitter to share their disagreement with the topic of the film that allegedly promotes domestic violence against men. They have trended the hashtags #BoycottAliaBhatt and #boycottDarlings on the social media platform. One user wrote, “#boycottAliaBhatt Why is Domestic violence against men normalized and even worse mocked. 3.4 crore men in India face domestic violence . This is not acceptable.” Another netizen wrote, “#BoycottAliaBhatt who believes it is Humorous to make movies of Domestic Violence on Men. #BoycottDarlings.”







Alia Bhatt was quite excited about the release of this movie and revealed in an interview that she immediately wanted to be the producer of the film after she heard the story. Hence, she got on board with Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment and produced her first film. Sharing the challenges she faces as a producer, Alia revealed to a news publication, “One of the biggest challenges in making a film is touching the audiences' hearts. You are trying to convey a story; you desire human connection. The constant thought was whether people will like it.”
