After Hardik Pandya, Ranveer Singh draws flak for sexist comments in 2011 Koffee with Karan appearance
Ranveer Singh's comments about fellow actors Anushka Sharma and Kareena Kapoor Khan have drawn major criticism, after two old video clips from Koffee with Karan resurfaced online
Following Hardik Pandya's Koffee with Karan appearance that drew the ire of netizens, as they called out the Indian cricket team player's misogynistic and racists remarks on the show, now old videos of Ranveer Singh from the same show has received a lot of flak.
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”.
