Alia Bhatt has been in news ever since her pregnancy announcement. The actress, who surprised everyone with the news, was overwhelmed by all the love and blessings coming her way.

However, certain media reports claiming her pregnancy will hamper work commitments and his actor husband Ranbir Kapoor will soon be flying out to bring back Alia home from the UK where is currently shooting for her films.

This left the Raazi actor miffed and responding to the reports, Alia shared an Insta post how still a woman is judged for choices.

“Meanwhile we still live in some people's heads. We still live in a 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 doctor's certification as well. This is 2022. Can we please get out of this archaic way of thinking? Now if you would excuse me. My shot is ready,” wrote Alia.

Following Alia's post, many of her fans, friends and celebrities came in her support including some celebs across the border from Pakistan.

Pakistani stars Zara Noor Abbas and Durefishan Saleem supported Alia and said that women do not need to prove their motherhood.

Zara wrote, "I thought only Pakistan thinks like this, especially when brands wanted to drop me, when they got to know I was expecting. Becoming pregnant and being an actress makes the society feel you are not good for work anymore."

"Well, guess what, women are good enough for everything and anything and it's time the dictators realise so. We don't have to prove our motherhood and craft to any patriarchy," added the Pak star.

Reacting to Alia's comment, Durefishan said people should 'stop telling women' what to do. 

"We can get married/make babies and still be kick*** fab. Marriage is a part of life, not a halt. Stop telling women that their career goals don't align well with that," Durefishan wrote on her Insta Stories.
