New Delhi: Alia Bhatt has been the talk of the town ever since she announced that she is expecting her first child with husband Ranbir Kapoor. On Tuesday, Alia took to her social media account to thank fans and well-wishers for their love and blessings.

Taking to her Instagram story, Alia also called out reports claiming that she has planned her pregnancy in such a way that her big Hollywood debut does not get affected. She further added that the report mentioned Ranbir flying down to the UK “to pick up” Alia.

Alia shared a screenshot of one of the reports which read, “Reportedly, the mommy-to-be will return to Mumbai in mid-July. It is also being reported that Ranbir might go to the UK to bring his wife home. Alia will be taking rest after she returns from her shoot. The reports also suggested that the actress planned her pregnancy in a way that doesn’t affect any of her commitments. She will be wrapping up her films, Heart Of Stone and Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani before the end of July.”

Expressing disappointment over the misogynistic coverage of her pregnancy news, Alia wrote, “Meanwhile we still live in some people’s heads we still live in some patriarchal world.. FYI. Nothing has gotten 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 doctors certification as well 🙂 This is 2022. Can we pls get out of this archaic way of thinking! Now if you would excuse me.. my shot is ready.”
