In the video, Ranveer describes how he was knock down by Kareena Kapoor Khan's beauty when she would come to a club for swimming. "I went from child to boy". His comment has now attracted criticism over the social media handles.

Recently, Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul triggered controversy after Pandya’s comment on women and other remarks were deemed ‘misgynistic’ and ‘racist’ by Twitter and social media users. Later, Pandya issued an apology about his comments on his official Twitter handle.

This all started when Karan was asking questions about not asking women’s name in a night club and what do men talk about. To this, Pandya replied, “I like to watch and observe how they (women) move. I'm little from the black side so I need to see how they move." Pandya also boasted about how he casually discussed his sex life with his parents. “When I lost my virginity, I came home and said, 'Main karke aya hai aaj (I had sex today)'. At a party my parents asked me 'acha tera wala (women) kaun sa hai [who is your interest here?] so I said yeh, yeh, yeh (pointing out women)' and they were like 'waah proud of you beta',” Pandya replied with laughter.
