People even speculated that the couple quickly tied the knot in an intimate wedding on their balcony because Alia was expecting before her marriage. A lot of similar questions and rumors have been floating in the air.

But finally putting these rumors to rest and giving people a piece of her mind, the 29-year-old actor said, “How can someone make a weird commentary about how a woman’s life is going to change just because she is married and having a child?” she questioned.

She was also criticized for being pregnant so early theorizing that it might be the end of her career. Speaking on this, she told News18:

“It is extremely unfair to me and also to all the women in the country who are building their lives and career, fighting for certain respect at work spaces. I am an actor but there are so many other professions where they have to remind me time and again that pregnancy is not the end of their professional life.”

The ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ actor further divulged that even though the current generation has moved on from this  ‘archaic’ philosophy, there’s still some mindless chatter going on by the media.

“It is for clickbait or to create a certain controversy or come up with some stupid news, like to report things in the most irresponsible fashion. Mindless chatter is given a lot of importance. There were a few who said, ‘Shaadi kab hui, bacha kab hua,’ but I feel these things don’t really matter.”

“Why does getting married or having a child have to change my professional life? The majority of the public, especially the younger generation, doesn’t think that way and there were a few comments who said ‘just leave her alone.'”

The actor further adds that it’s important for women to raise their voices so that no one takes advantage of them.

“Women are always questioned and are constantly battling things as if it is their fault. And being completely, I’d like to say to hell with that kind of thinking. We are in 2022 and people should start living like they are in 2022. I would continue to and prefer to lead by example and action as opposed to giving any attention to the nonsensical things.”

Good on her for handling so much criticism with maturity. Now, if these ‘chatterboxes’ are convinced, how about sparing her the judgment?
