Controversies, since ages, have been an eternal part of the B-Town. Every day has something new to offer. The audience was not over with the recent revelations of Hardik Pandya, soon, the internet came out with another such divisive episode of Koffee with Karan. However, this time it’s one of the leading stars of the Bollywood – Ranveer Singh.
The episode dates back to the year 2011, where he made an appearance on the show with Anushka Sharma. It was Ranveer’s debut on the show with her Band Baaja Barat co-star. Few of his remarks were entirely sexist but, neither internet nor industry took over any action against his statements. But, right in the case of Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul, guess the time was not right for them, and the funniest is that within hours of their suspension, the internet and social media got broke with video clips of the actor’s sexist statements from that particular episode, aired way back in 2011.

As per the viral video, the actor made a statement to Anushka – ‘You want your ass pinched? I am right here’ to which the actress humbly responded with a smile – ‘You don’t talk to me like that’. Is this what we expect from an individual we call our Hero? Not only this, Ranveer made another confession which was associated with Kareena Kapoor Khan. He stated – ‘I went from child to boy while watching Kareena swim’. Such sexist comments on the ladies, should be ‘INTOLERABLE’. Another aspect which one cannot ignore is the host’s reaction. After playing with the dignity of a female sitting on the couch, by Ranveer Singh on a public platform, Karan Johar did not oppose at any point and instead shared a laugh.
Well, actions were taken or not, have no clue but this episode has not been off, the entertainment platforms. Maybe – its cool for men to speak against a co-star and well accepted, however, this time the axe had to fall on the career of the two rising cricketers. Can it be said that finally time has finally arrived for change, a change which is a must! As we know, not only Rahul and Pandaya got suspended for their remarks, but, also, the duo issued an apology on the public platform. However, after post Ranveer's Video clip going viral, the actor has not talked about it yet. On the professional front, he is currently celebrating the success of Simbaa and promoting Gully Boy, releasing next month.
