Check out what Farah Khan has to say about Alia Bhatt's pregnancy

Farah Khan’s Regressive Comment On Alia’s Pregnancy

A section of the netizens think Sushant Singh Rajput will come back as Alia and Ranbir Kapoor’s unborn child. As if that is not creepy enough we now have Farah Khan telling Ranbir’s mother Neetu Singh Kapoor on a reality show that Rishi Kapoor is coming back as Alia and Ranbir’s child.

It’s all very confusing. Is the child coming back as Sushant or Rishi ?And what if it’s a girl? Not that gender matters.

But seriously , why are they putting so much pressure of the poor couple, and more importantly why are we doing a Karz on the unborn child? Punar janam and all that in this day and age, and that too from a broadminded babe like Farah Khan?! Or at least I always thought of her as broadminded. She has always done her own thing, nor caring about what others think of her.

So why is she suddenly this conformist soothsayer making the right noises for a nation starved for miracles?

It is sad when someone as progressive as Farah Khan falls prey to the lure of crowd-pandering. Everyone loves a sentimental past-future flip-forward.I would love to see Rishi Kapoor born again.But I am not sure I would like Ranbir and Alia’s moment of joy to be gobsmacked by blind superstition.

I know it is that time in the history of Indian civilization when everyone is claiming his or her past heritage. In the very Hindu sounding Rashtra Kavach Om Aditya Roy Kapur exclaims, “Jai Bhawani” before doing his dangerous stunts. No harm in that, But the problem arises when we allow faith to turn blind . That’s when alarm bells begin to ring in all rational minds.

This is Ranbir and Alia’s most wonderful time of their life. To become parents has always been a secret wish for them two actors. Alia in fact shared her pregnancy with a close director-friend a few weeks before she announced it on social media. She was very excited and happy, as she told the director, “I’ve always dreamt of this. Marriage, a baby. In fact the reason we got married was so that could become parents.”

As the couple waits for the new arrival in their home, why not give them the space to enjoy parenthood rather than crowding them with unreasonable expectations? It is interesting that fans and friends are presuming the child will “come back” as a male. Why not a girl child? Even Rishi Kapoor would have liked that.
