Chandigarh, June 17

A restaurant in Pakistan using a scene from Bollywood movie Gangubai Kathiawadi featuring Alia Bhatt in order to promote an offer only for men has not gone down well with people back home in India.

In the film, Alia Bhatt plays the role of prostitute Gangubai who goes on to become an influential brothel owner.

The advertisement used by the restaurant in Karachi showed a scene from the movie where Bhatt gestured to get her first customer.

With that poster, the restaurant Swing announced Men’s Monday with a 25 per cent discount for men.

“Aaja na Raja – what are you waiting for?” the tagline of the advertisement said. The ad showed Bhatt standing at the door and a big billboard promoting 25 per cent off on “Men’s Monday”. “Swings is calling out all the Rajas out there,” read the caption of the post.

However after being shared on social media, actress fans have asked the restaurant owner to take it down.

Meanwhile, the restaurant has defended the advertisement and said that it was just a concept and not meant to hurt anyone.
