Alia Bhatt on Monday announced her first pregnancy with hubby Ranbir Kapoor via an Instagram post. While the actress has been making it to the headlines for the good news, she seems to be irked by certain reports and she has expressed her disapproval of patriarchal news stories being circulated on the internet. 

While good wishes have been pouring in from all over, Alia Bhatt was also deeply disappointed in some of the misogynistic media coverage she received.

Taking to her Instagram stories Alia reacted strongly to a news report and informed that her projects are not being delayed. 

A previous report suggested that Ranbir Kapoor would be travelling to the UK to bring Alia Bhatt home.
