They slammed the actress for not doing her research properly and giving an opinion about the film on the basis of a 10-15-minute watch. One follower said “You failed to give a suitable example of what is objectionable in the film. The makers of Barbie chose to represent her as an actual woman rather than merely the ideal that you have been telling your children, they continued, and that is the only reason you are upset. The film performs well at the box office and becomes a blockbuster. Barbie clashed with Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer and beat Oppenheimer. However, in India, Oppenheimer led the race. Barbie movie hit the theatre on 21 July 2023.
