A day after the relase of its trailer, upcoming comedy film ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh’ has already started receiving flak on social media for a particular dialogue or monologue by Chintu Tyagi, played by actor Kartik Aaryan. A comical take on adultery and extra-marital affairs, the movie, directed by Mudassar Aziz also stars Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Pandey.

Known for his monologues in Pyaar ka Punchnama film series, Aaryan’s character, yet again, rants about the opposite gender to his friend, played by Aparshakti Khurana. However, this time, many felt, the line was crossed and called out the film for joking about marital rape.

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 na toh balaatkaari bhi hum hain,” Aaryan can be heard saying in the trailer.

While in a recent interview, Pednekar had claimed that the “situational comedy” was not a sexist film, netizens feel otherwise.

Not pleased with the content, many took to social media to criticise the “shameful statement”.

“If ‘kisi tarah se jugaad laga ke usse / biwi se sex haasil kar le’ is not the definition of marital rape, then I don’t know what is,” tweeted a user. Another wrote, “This misogyny needs to end! A woman’s power to consent is not something to joke about and what makes it worse is that 20-something year olds are being part of such projects.”
