‘Darlings’ Release: #BoycottAliaBhatt Trends On Twitter, She Is Accused Of Promoting Domestic Violence Against Men

New Delhi: The hashtag #BoycottAliaBhatt has begun trending on Twitter just one day before the release of Alia Bhatt and Shefali Shah starrer ‘Darlings’ on Netflix. Along with Shefali Shah, Vijay Varma, and Roshan Mathew, she plays Badrunissa Shaikh, a victim of domestic abuse, in the movie.

Those who are slamming her on the Internet think that Alia’s most recent work is a plot that supports domestic violence against men. In ‘Darlings’, Vijay plays Hamza Shaikh, Badru’s husband, who beats her until she decides to exact revenge by kidnapping and torturing him in the home where they both reside.

The teaser depicts Alia’s character bashing her husband with a pan, dumping water on his face, submerging his face in a tank of water,  and constantly planning to treat him “exactly as he treated her” rather than killing him. In a brief video, Hamza is tied to a chair while Badrunissa beats him and administers shots to knock him out in retaliation for all the torment and violence she endured from him during their marriage.

Darlings is co-produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment. The movie, made by Jasmeet K. Reen, will debut on Netflix on August 5.
