Kartik Aaryan gets trolled for ‘chauvinist’ remark

Kartik Aaryan who is gearing up for his upcoming film Love Aaj Kal co-starring Sara Ali Khan gets trolled for his women with defects remark. The actor who has given several hits to the industry recently in an interview was asked over his comparison with Ayushmann Khurrana. While drawing the line he said Ayushmann does films based on men with defects while he does the film about women with defects.

As soon as he uttered these words it spread like a fire on all social media platforms and in no time netizens started trolling the actor for being chauvinist. People started cursing Kartik saying that Ayushmann does film to remove the stereotypes and not where men have defects. One of the users wrote on Twitter, “Just here to say that Kartik Aaryan is a misogynistic, homophobic and bigoted piece of shit.”

Whereas another user wrote, “All this time @ayushmannk did such movies to remove the stereotypes. #KartikAaryan in one go calls those characters "men with defects".”


However, as it is said that sikka kai do pehlu hotey hai same way even Kartik’s statement has two sides. As per Pinkvilla report, the actor clarified that he was quoted out of the context and revealed that it was all related to a meme.
