To which he replied, “I love my life, with everything I have with my wife. What happened was that the joke that I made, didn’t turn out to be funny. I really want to apologize to anyone, if I triggered anyone, you know it was not my intention so I am sorry to anyone who got offended.”
Ranbir Kapoor later added “I talked to Alia on this and she really laughed it off and she really didn’t mind it. I do have a bad sense of humor sometimes and that kinda falls onto my face. So I am sorry if I have hurt anyone”
This is not Ranbir’s first comment on a female
Ranbir Kapoor has been involved in commenting on women and his fellow co-workers before his wife. He once made a comment on Anushka Sharma, called “Anxiety Queen”. He also mocked Katrina Kaif when they were promoting their film.
