Ranbir Kapoor On ‘Phailod’ Comment On Alia’s Pregnancy: ‘I Think It’s A Joke That Didn’t Turn Out To Be Funny’

New Delhi [India]: Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor has apologized for his ‘Phailod’ comment on his pregnant wife Alia Bhatt in a current promotional occasion for his upcoming movie ‘Brahmastra: Part 1-Shiva’.

Ranbir, on Wednesday, arrived in Chennai for the merchandising of his upcoming sci-fi movement film ‘Brahmastra’ alongside south director SS Rajamouli and actor Nagarjuna. The ‘Sanju’ actor during the media interaction apologized for his remark and stated, Firstly, let me start with, I love my wife with everything that I have in my life. And what happened on that, I think it’s a joke that didn’t turn out to be funny. I really want to apologize if I have triggered anyone. It was not my intention. So I want to say sorry to people who got offended or triggered. I spoke to Alia about it and she really laughed it off and she didn’t mind it. But I do have a bad sense of humour and sometimes it falls flat on my own face. So I am sorry if I have hurt anyone about it.”


Recently, Ranbir and Alia along with director Ayan Mukerji started a YouTube live session for the promotion of their film.

During the live session, when the duo was asked why they are not actively promoting ‘Brahmastra’ in the way they do for other movies, Alia replied, “We will promote the film, and we will be everywhere but if the question you are asking is why we are not ‘phailod’ everywhere, right now our focus is…”

It was at this point that Ranbir cut her in between and pointed at his wife’s baby bump saying, “Well I can say somebody has phailod (referencing her weight gain).” However, he did add that his comment was meant as a joke.

Though Ranbir made it clean that he turned into joking, sadly, it did now not go nicely with many social media users, who later slammed the ‘Shamshera’ actor for allegedly ‘fats-shaming’ Alia.

The clip of the interplay circulated on numerous social media.

Ranbir and Alia tied the knot on April 14, 2022, and in June 2022, the couple introduced the news of their pregnancy.

Apart from the baby’s arrival, the two are also watching for the release in their movie ‘Brahmastra’, that is scheduled to hit the theatres on September nine. Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy, and south actor Nagarjuna can also be seen in distinguished roles in Ayan Mukerji’s directorial.
