In the clip, Kangana takes a swipe at Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor, questioning the label of ‘young stars’ attached to them. Expressing her disdain, she contrasts their ages with her parents, emphasizing that at their age, they were already married with children.

She then mentioned Alia Bhatt who was then 27. Kangana said that her mother already had three kids at the age of Alia Bhatt.
