Alia Bhatt, Shefali Shah star “Darlings” is released on Netflix today

Alia Bhatt’s production debut, Darlings, is slated to hit Netflix on Friday. “Darlings” is special as it not only marks Bhatt’s production debut but also her foray into the world of OTT.

The film’s trailer was released on YouTube on July 25 and has garnered over 4,28,39,012 views to date. The two minute 34 second trailer shows Alia Bhatt and Shefali Shah filing a complaint about the disappearance of Vijay Varma.

As the trailer progresses, it is revealed that Bhatt is not as innocent as she appears. It also appears that Bhatt’s character has faced domestic violence and is determined to exact revenge on her husband, played by Varma.

Because of this, the film has recently drawn the wrath of netizens. #BoycottDarlings became a hot topic on Twitter when users said Alia Bhatt’s upcoming film was misandristic or aimed to encourage male bashing.

They said it encourages domestic violence against men. One user wrote: “Alia Bhatt needs to stop making fun of all male victims of domestic violence.”
