MUMBAI: The infamous marital rape dialogue from the movie 'Pati, Patni Aur Woh' has been surrounded by so many controversies. But now, actor Kartik Aaryan has said that the team has rectified the mistake and thus the dialogue has been removed.
In a group interview, Kartik Aaryan took full responsibility on behalf of the whole cast and crew and said that the unintentional mistake has been rectified. He said, "When the trailer came, we realised that we shouldn't hurt anyone and should remove it immediately. Usually, this doesn't happen in films. We took responsibility because it might have come across as something that wasn't our intention. We realised we shouldn't use that word (rape) at all so we have rectified it and made changes because we don't want to hurt people's sentiments."
He went further on and told the publications that they did not realise how the interpretation of the dialogue could go wrong. He said, "We didn't realise it when we were doing it. We had shown it to a lot of people, but no one had pointed it out. We didn't want to hurt anyone's sentiments. This isn't the topic of our film nor was this our intention."
The concerned dialogue received a lot of criticism as it seemed to attack a serious problem in society. The trailer highlighted the dialogue as Aaryan's rant over his relationship problems (remember the monologues from the 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama' series?) has been much appreciated in the past. The dialogue was:
Biwi se sex maang lein, toh hum bhikaari. Biwi ko sex mana kar dein, toh hum atyachaari aur kisi tarah jugaad laga ke uss se sex haasil kar lein na toh balaatkaari bhi hum hain.
However, no complaints now as the wrong step has been undone.
Besides Kartik, the movie also stars Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Panday in lead roles. 'Pati, Patni Aur Woh' is all set to release on 6th December, clashing with Arjun Kapoor's 'Panipat'.
