Margot Robbie has taken the world by storm with her impeccable acting skills in Greta Gerwig’s blockbuster hit Barbie. The movie has opened to rave reviews and created several records at the box office. Fans are loving the chemistry between Robbie and Ryan Gosling. The movie also gave tough competition to another big release Oppenheimer directed by Christopher Nolan.

Meanwhile, Bollywood star actor Shahid Kapoor’s wife Mira Kapoor has taken a jibe over the Robbie starrer movie. Mira watched the movie in a theatre and shared a photo of a big screen on her Instagram story. She wrote, “Hollywood this Hollywood that… Well Hollywood can’t do song-and-dance like Bollywood can?”. Mira was brutally trolled on social media while some also supported her in this matter.

Mira’s Instagram story got viral on Reddit where the users didn’t waste much time to troll her. A user slammed Mira and said that she is just a wife of a star Bollywood actor, “Big words coming from someone who makes Kardashians look hardworking and talented. Babe your personality is wrapped around your man please stop talking.” a Reddit user was quoted as saying by Koimoi.

‘Barbie’ receiving great reviews

Barbie did great business at the India box office initially however, the audience later moved towards Oppenheimer. Many stars from Indian cinema opted to watch Nolan’s masterpiece while some also decided to watch Barbie. Hindustan reviewed the Robbie-starrer movie and talked about the character called ‘Greta’.

“Greta is also quite indulgent with the satirising, constantly reiterating how she’s remodelling the Barbie myth. The humour, hence, lands only occasionally, even though one silently admires the shots fired with every line. But the tone, a mix of self-awareness and spelling everything out, remains consistent throughout.”

“In that, Greta Gerwig constructs a satire that’s slightly indulgent, but also constantly clever and occasionally fun. She treats the script like it’s her Barbie — all dolled up, yet catapulted via imagination to places where it’s never gone before.” the review added.
