Recently, actor Ranbir Kapoor and actress Alia Bhatt participated in a live YouTube video to promote their new movie Brahmastra. In the video, RK made a remark about Alia’s weight gain during her pregnancy. The actor has since apologised to anyone who was offended by his comment.
Ranbir was questioned about his remark while he was in Chennai on Wednesday for the promotion of Brahmastra. The actor responded, “Yes, absolutely. Firstly, let me start with, I love my wife with everything that I have in my life. I think it’s a joke that didn’t turn out to be funny. I really want to apologise if I have triggered anyone. It was not my intention. So I want to say sorry to people who got offended or triggered,” he said.
He added that he had spoken to Alia about it and she “laughed it off.” “I spoke to Alia about it and she really laughed it off and she didn’t mind it. But I do have a bad sense of humour and sometimes it falls flat on my own face. So I am sorry if I have hurt anyone with it,” he added.
During the YouTube live, Alia was talking about the film’s promotions when Ranbir interrupted her by saying, “I can see somebody has phaeloed,” looking pointedly at her baby bump. Alia can be seen visibly shocked in the video. Seconds later, Ranbir started laughing and said, “Joke… in a cute way.”
