Actress and television host Gauahar Khan’s husband Zaid Darbar has been called out for a tone-deaf post he made in his Instagram stories. The photo which has now been deleted shows a homeless man sleeping on the footpath with Zaid standing next to him and getting his picture taken. He wrote in the caption, “No AC, no fan, no darkness, but still sleeping so peacefully because no wife?”


He then wrote at the bottom of the post, “But I am the most peaceful with you jaanu, love you jaanu,” tagging Gauahar. 


However, when the screenshot of the same was shared on Reddit, netizens came down heavily on Zaid. 


One user wrote, “Oh my God. Where does one start? Making a misogynistic joke at the expense of someone who is clearly impoverished is his idea of humour?”

“Tasteless joke in so many ways. It’s obviously sexist and boomer humour. Of course it’s also making fun of someone who is poor. What a sad man to get married to,” added another. 

Another user commented, “Honestly, these wife jokes aren't funny. Especially for a wife who is the one financially supporting your lifestyle. He has made quite a few reels on these stupid, unfunny wife jokes. I find such jokes so disgusting. She works all year around, while all you do is make stupid reels. She deserves more respect!”

Gauahar and Zaid got married on December 25, 2020. Reportedly, the two met while shopping for groceries during the lockdown. The two began chatting and friendship soon turned to love.

In December 2022, the duo announced the pregnancy news with an adorable animated video. And in May 2023, the duo was blessed with a baby boy named Zehaan.

Gauahar announced the news of her baby's arrival via an Instagram post that read, " It's a Boy As salaam u alaikum beautiful world, says our bundle of joy. Arrived 10th of May 2023 to make us realise what happiness truly means. Our blessed boy thanks everyone for their love and prayers. Grateful and giggling new parents Zaid and Gauahar." 

After Zehaan’s birth, Zaid penned a note dedicating it to his "beautiful and strong wife." He wrote, "My biggest blessing. I am so grateful to the Almighty, for making this possible, I'm so indebted to my beautiful and strong wife for giving me this gift of being a DAD to our lil angel."
