While the trailer of Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Panday's Pati Patni aur Woh was hilarious and the movie seems like a worthy remake of the original, not everything was hunky-dory for the makers. Soon, a particular joke surrounding marital rapes was being discussed or should we say condemned on social media and for reasons valid enough. Twitterati was quick to slam the makers and even actors for joking about this grave issue and Bhumi has now reacted on this outburst.
In her recent chat with Zoom channel, when the actress was about the controversy and what she has to say about it, Bhumi simply said, "If we have hurt anybody’s sentiments, we are sorry, because that wasn’t the intention. But everybody who is involved in Pati Patni Aur Woh, does not belong to that school, does not belong to that thought process.” We wonder if an apology would be enough to calm down all the folks who were upset with makers for making fun about this serious issue.

For the ones who are wondering what the discussed "joke" was all about, well, here's the dialogue for you. "Biwi se sex maang lein toh hum bhikhari, biwi ko sex na dein toh hum atyachari aur kisi tarah jugaad laga ke usse sex haasil kar lein na toh balatkari bhi hum hain,” says Kartik Aaryan while discussing his marital problems. While Karan Johar maintains 'any publicity is good publicity', we are slightly offended with this one.
