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”.

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.
Such a shameful creature, Anushka didn't liked at all. Don't know how guys like him becomes someone's idol. — Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) January 10, 2019
Several people have criticised Karan Johar for laughing and responding to Ranveer's Singh's sexist jokes.

Aamir Khan's Laal Singh Chaddha is truly the epitome of his belief. The faith and the devotion that he kept in the story have made him sail through such a long period of 14 years to actually bring the story of an innocent man in front of an audience.
Brides have run away from marriages in our cinema, often to cathartic effect. But they have also usually vacated one mandap to head to another.
Aamir Khan on Laal Singh Chaddha: ‘To get the innocence was very difficult after you’ve been through life so much’
In an exclusive interview with Firstpost, the Superstar gets candid about how he prepped for the role of Laal Singh Chaddha, what fascinated him about the 1994 classic Forrest Gump, and how Kareena Kapoor Khan has evolved as an actor.
