Actor Ranveer Singh and actress Anushka Sharma made their debut on chat show Koffee With Karan together. A video clip from the episode featuring the two has now resurfaced on social media, for which the Padmaavat actor is facing a lot of flak. Ranveer’s remark on Anushka, made in a jest, is being deemed as ‘inappropriate’ and ‘sexist’ on social media.
In the video, Simmba actor is seen telling Anushka, “You want your a** pinched? I am right here.” After listening to Ranveer’s comment, Anushka looks visibly shocked and Karan keeps laughing at his remark. Anushka then hits Ranveer in a friendly manner and tells him not to talk to her like that.
In another video which is going viral, Ranveer describes how Kareena’s beauty made him a boy from a child when he saw Veere Di Wedding actor swim at a club. The remark leaves Anushka hiding her face and Karan feels stumped, telling him that he might get offended as Kareena is like his younger sister.
Both the remarks from the actor are referred to as misogynistic and sexist. He is being slammed savagely for his statements on the show. While some are trolling him, others are bashing him left, right and centre on social media.

Recently, Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul appeared on the chat show. On the show, Pandya boasted about hooking up with multiple women and spoke about how open he is with his parents, saying he had once told them after losing his virginity, “aaj mai kar ke aaya.” When the host of the show asked him why didn’t he ask women their name in a club, Pandya responded by saying, “I like to watch and observe how they (women) move. I’m little from the back side so I need to see how they move.” The comments irked many people and he was slammed for being misogynistic.
On the professional front, Ranveer is now gearing up for the release of his upcoming film, Gully Boy with Alia Bhatt. The movie is directed by Zoya Akhtar and is all set to hit the screens on February 14. The actor will also start prepping for ’83 in which he will be seen playing the role of Kapil Dev. He has signed Karan Johar’s Takht as well
