There is a boy in the film, whose obesity has been made fun of many times on the screen. This user has written, ‘Does no one want to talk about the joke and fatphobia being made about the size of a child’s body in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2? This time a boy has been bodyshamed. Further, this user has written tauntingly, ‘We understand that men do not have body type issues.’
Users came out in support of the film
It is interesting that many other users have supported the film while replying to this user on ‘Reddit’ itself. They say that it depends on their own thinking whether they are taking it as a comedy or considering it as fat shaming. Another user wrote, ‘I was watching this movie in the theater last night and every audience present there was laughing at that joke. There is no such thing as fat shaming here.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 also stars Tabu and Rajpal Yadav apart from Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani. Released in theaters on May 20, the film is standing on the threshold of 100 crore club. This film, which has earned more than 83 crores in 6 days, will easily earn 100 crores till its second weekend i.e. by Sunday.
