At a press conference to promote his upcoming film Sanju, the much-controversial biopic on actor Sanjay Dutt, Ranbir Kapoor, with director Rajkumar Hirani and producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra also present, was asked to comment on the prevalence of casting couch. On his part, he responded, “I have never faced it. If it’s there, it’s the worst kind.”

Watch what Kapoor said, here.

As a response to his comment, Hirani and Chopra, known for their stellar contributions to the industry, laughed. People, who were already furious at Khan’s remarks, took to Twitter to call out Kapoor as well. From innumerable references to his privilege as a member of the Kapoor family, to the “selective outrage” Bollywood resorts to, they had a lot to say to Kapoor. “Wow. At least should have had the decency to reply to it sincerely. Look at them laughing it off. At least have some respect towards women who might be victims of it. And please, selective outrage mat kara karo bollywood.” “What a bunch of insensitive dolts.” “I  mean just like women who might not have faced sexual assault/harrassment can be advocates of women’s safety, similarly these star kids can also try to understand the other side’s pov. It doesnt require experience. It requires sensitivity. Which sadly they dont have.” were some of the comments doing the rounds of the Internet.

Here is what others had to say.
