Actor Kartik Aaryan, who has been entertaining his fans on social media with funny videos, has been criticised for sharing a video which has misogynistic content. A few days ago, Kartik Aaryan posted a TikTok video on his Instagram where he and his sister, Kritika Tiwari are seen enacting out a scene that seemingly did not go down well with a section of social media users. The actor punishes his sister for making bad Rotis by spinning her around the room holding her ponytails and throwing her out of the balcony. However, his last video attracted much criticism, so much so that the actor had to delete the post.
