Two days ago trailer of Pati Patni Aur Woh was released and one monologue from the film by Kartik Aaryan received a lot of flak on it. The offensive line from Kartik Aaryan’s monologue in the upcoming film will be edited out, as per a media report.
A source told the website that the makers ‘got carried away’ when they decided to include a joke on marital rape.
“Since Kartik Aaryan’s monologue in Pyaar Ka Punchnaama was a hit they thought of doing another one this time and got carried away. The offensive monologue will be edited out of the film,” the source said.
Several Twitter users expressed disappointment at the line, calling it sexist and insensitive. “I don’t expect anything from a Kartik Aaryan movie but this is dismal,” wrote one. “Reducing consent & #MeToo to a joke, this is film making,” wrote another.
Check out the offensive dialogue:
It’s like all the creepy uncles in a family group got together over cheap daaru and wrote this film.https://t.co/WmktIR0d6q
