Seems like Mira Rajput did not like the recently released Hollywood film Barbie. On Monday, Mira took to Instagram and shared a picture of a theatre screen showing Barbie. However, it was the caption that caught everyone’s attention.

In the caption, she wrote, “Hollywood this Hollywood that…Well, Hollywood can’t do song and dance like Bollywood can.”

Barbie is directed by Greta Gerwig. Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling star as the stereotypical versions of Barbie and Ken, who leave the world of Barbieland on a quest for self-discovery in the real world. The cast also includes Issa Rae, Dua Lipa, Simu Liu, Michael Cera, Helen Mirren, John Cena and Will Ferrell.

The film clashed at the box office with Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer.

As per Variety, Greta’s directorial Barbie raked in USD 155 million in its opening weekend, marking the biggest debut ever for a film directed by a woman.’Captain Marvel’ which was co-directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, previously held the title after earning USD 153 million in 2019.

Wonder Woman from filmmaker Patty Jenkins, stood as the record-holder for a movie solely directed by a woman with its USD 103 million debut in 2017.
