‘Pati Patni Aur Woh’: Kartik Aaryan gets slammed for making a joke on marital rape
Kartik Aaryan has been grabbing the attention of the town, as he released the trailer of his next film, ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh’ yesterday. Adult humour and comedy in Bollywood go hand-in-hand, and Kartik’s upcoming film seems to be a blend of such comedy scenes. While some have trolled the actor for portraying similar comic roles in several of his films, some have now slammed the actor for making a joke of marital rape in one of his dialogues in the trailer of ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh’.
Kartik Aaryan’s upcoming comedy flick is a reprised version of the old classic cult, ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh’ of 1978, which featured Sanjeev Kumar, Vidya Sinha and Ranjeeta Kaur in key roles. The film which was set in the backdrop of extra-marital affair had bagged many accolades for the comic scenes in it. In the recently released trailer of the film, Kartik’s upcoming film, the comedy scenes seem to have gone a little overboard, and for that, the actor has been slammed. Take a look at the trailer right here.
Now, check out what netizen has to say on his marital rape dialogue from the trailer of the film.
No Bollywood you do not get to normalize marital rape !! And to think a man wrote these words & a male star spoke these words in order to elicit laughter from the crowd !! Marital rape is NOT A LAUGHING MATTER. Ridiculous & Shameful. #PatiPatniAurWoh https://t.co/YbeOr2jIRy

Bollywood to rescue again for a social cause and legal fight, “kisi tarah jugaad laga kar biwi se sex haasil kar lein to balatkari bhi him hain”. Because marital rape is a joke in this country anyway. Well done.#PatiPatniAurWoh #PatiPatniAurWohTrailer

Just came here to say that I’m literally outraged by the #PatiPatniAurWohTrailer. Not only does the movie seem painfully awful but they also made a disgusting rape joke. Unacceptable!

The sickening pervasive misogyny that is increasingly becoming a trend in Bollywood is disturbing to day the least. Rape jokes, crass remarks about ‘obtaining’ sex from women as if that’s all that one can ‘get’ from the fairer sex….. what else is left? #PatiPatniAurWoh

Someone please tell Juno Chopra that it’s 2019 and rape jokes are unacceptable.@TheAaryanKartik how did you agree to that dialogue? @Aparshakti @ananyapandayy @bhumipednekar @TSeries #PatiPatniAurWoh is same old Govinda crap being reheated and sold to us… shameful!!

At 1.17, @TheAaryanKartik‘s character laments how “kisi tarah jugad laga sex hasil karne se” ‘poor’ men are labelled as rapists.
Reducing consent & #MeToo to a joke, this is film making?

#PatiPatniAurWoh is a classic example of how insensitive bollywood is to important issues. @TheAaryanKartik needs to be very careful about the actual content of his monologues. This is not the Dada Kondke era anymore!
