‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ Accused Of Promoting Body-Shaming At The Expense Of A Child

The second installment of the Indian Hindi-language comedy horror film ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ recently hit theatres. ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ stars Tabu, Kartik Aaryan, Kiara Advani, and Rajpal Yadav in lead roles.

The film has been receiving a lot of love. However, there is a set of people who have highlighted a major problem in the movie i.e. fatshaming.

Taking to Reddit, a user pointed out that in the name of humour, the writers are negligibly promoting body shaming with insensitive jokes at the expense of a child.

The user (@u/Special-Hunter-1496) said that it’s not cool to make the young boy a victim of body shaming jokes. “After all, men ko toh body image issues hote hi kahaan hai,” the user exclaimed.

People online, who have watched the film, opined that the number of times the kid is being shamed, it comes across as harassment and not humor anymore.

Some suggested that many from the audience might enjoy such humour and hence, filmmakers add it to the film to make it less bland and boring.

A handful of people also said, ‘movie entertainment k liye dekho’ and take a chill pill.

His statement “After all, men ko toh body image issues hote hi kahaan hai’ was met with a lot of adverse responses.

The point is:

We are the ones who consume such jokes about someone’s appearance. We are also the ones who don’t think twice before casually body shaming anyone without thinking about how it could affect them mentally. It is we who need to change our mentality and content consumption pattern. What do you think?
