In 2011, the Padmaavat and Simmba star, who was then a debutant, appeared on the show with his Band Baaja Baraat co-actor Anushka Sharma. In one of the clips that has been floating online, Ranveer tells Sharma, “You want your ass pinched? I’m right here,” to which a shocked Anushka replies, "“You don’t speak to me like that”.

In another video, Ranveer Singh is seen describing how he went from being a "child to (a) boy" after watching Kareena Kapoor Khan swim.

Twitter has blasted Singh for making such disrespectful remarks on the show.

Several people have criticised Karan Johar for laughing and responding to Ranveer's Singh's sexist jokes.
