After the trailer of Pati Patni Aur Woh was released, netizens also wrote to National Commission for Women to take action against the filmmakers.

Kartik Aaryan and makers of Pati Patni Aur Woh are being criticized for hurting sentiments of people who have suffered from marital rape. The film, Pati Patni Aur Woh  also stars Ananya Panday and Bhumi Pednekar. The film has been directed by Mudassar Aziz. The actor and filmmakers were brutally trolled for making fun of a serious issue like marital rape. In India, marital rape is considered as a heinous crime and is being faced by many women.

Talking about the entire controversy, Mudassar Aziz after being trolled brutally spoke about the entire scenario and said, "It is unfortunate because I maintain my stand that a 12-year-old needs to know what rape is. The act is wrong, but if you are not going to talk about it and if they aren’t going to know what the term stands for, you’re going to be a generation that’s unaware. Don’t stop the word, stop the act."


Mudassar Aziz also spoke about a scene from 3 Idiots in which Chatur uses word Balatkar for 36 times. "By muting that word, you’re not getting anything. What sort of double standard is it that in one film (3 Idiots) a person reads balatkar 36 times from a letter and everyone was laughing."


The dialogue, "Biwi se sex maang le toh hum bhikhari. Biwi ko sex na dein toh hum atyachari. Aur kisi tarah jugaad us'se lagakar sex haasil kar lein na toh balatkaari bhi hum hain." had led to the controversy. During a recent media interaction, Kartik Aaryan had to apologize about the entire controversy and had said, "We took responsibility because it might have come across as something that wasn’t our intention. We realized 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 further said, "We didn’t realize 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."
