The trailer of the new Kartik Aaryan comedy Pati Patni Aur Woh has evoked a mixed response. The one dialogue that has got social media uniformly up in arms against Kartik involves his character whining and complaining about the volume of sex in his married life.
The dialogue says: “Biwi se sex maang lein, toh hum bhikaari. Biwi ko sex mana kar dein, toh hum atyachaari, aur kisi tarah jugaad laga ke uss se sex haasil kar lein, toh balaatkaari bhi hum hain.” (If we ask the wife for sex, then we are beggars. If we say no to the wife for sex, then we are tormentors; and if somehow we manage to get sex from her, then we are rapists too).
The shockingly insensitive remarks have not gone down well with the public. A section of the Twitterati sees this as an endorsement of marital rape. A source from the production team feels the dialogue will have to go. “Since Kartik’s monologue in Pyaar Ka Punchnaama was a hit, they thought of doing another one this time and got carried away. The offensive monologue will be edited out of the film.”
