Alia reacts strongly to media report
Alia has reacted strongly to reports that her Hollywood debut, with the Netflix feature film Heart of Stone opposite Gal Gadot, has been delayed due to her pregnancy. She said that she was shooting while pregnant and though the news is amazing for the family, her work will not be sidelined. The reports also said that Alia will be 'picked up' by her husband Ranbir from UK where she is shooting.
Alia wrote on Instagram, "Meanwhile we live in some people's heads we also live in some patriarchal world. Nothing has got delayed, No one needs to pick anyone up. I am a woman, not a parcel. I do not need to rest at all but good to know you'll have a doctor's certification. This is 2002. Can we please get out of this archake way of thinking. Now if you would excuse me, my shot is ready (sic)."
