Those who kept up with the top trends on social media will know that the trolls also dragged actresses Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif into their posts and passed mean jokes and nasty comments against the two. Some even went as far as asking the two actresses when they can expect the ‘khush khabri’.
Ranbir and Alia became the butt of several jokes online for announcing the happy news just two months after their wedding on April 14. Many also took jibes at Deepika who has been married to Ranveer Singh for three years and even Katrina, who married Vicky Kaushal last December.
Not to take the mean posts lying down, fans of the actresses took to Twitter to shut down the trolls and ask them to ‘back off’.
“People dragging Deepika and Katrina for not having kids just because Alia Bhatt is having a child at 29 is exactly what is wrong with our society,” read a tweet.
Another rose to defend the actresses saying, “Some people are judging Deepika and Katrina for not having a child yet. As if it’s a race.”
“Taunting Deepika & Katrina for not having a baby being married. Just a misogynistic society who can’t mind their own business” said another.

Besides the trolling, social media has been flooded with congratulatory messages for the parents-to-be. Everyone from fans to friends, former costars and well-wishers have been taking to social media to wish the two the best for parenthood.
“Our baby ….. coming soon,” Alia announced in an Instagram post that has since garnered over 6 million likes.
Ranbir and Alia wed in an intimate wedding ceremony in April at their Bandra apartment. The two will soon be seen sharing the screen for the first time in the upcoming action flick ‘Brahmastra’ which also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy in lead roles. The film releases on September 9, 2022.
