New Delhi: Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor is all set for the release of his upcoming magnum opus Animal which will make it to the big screens on 1 December 2023.
In the film, Ranbir will star as lead actor alongside renowned South Indian actress Rashmika Mandhana while iconic actors like Anil Kapoor and Bobby Doel will be seen in other important roles.

In the viral video shared by Swati Bellam, the Rockstar actor sporting a dark navy shirt paired with a cool cap, is seen exiting after offering his prayers to Lord Ganesha in the T-series office.
As he ends his prayers and begins to exit the office promises, a priest stops him and offers him a container of Prasad. However, the superstar gently refuses to accept the same and mentions that he is currently on a diet.
He then takes the prasad’s box from the pandit and hands it over to someone else saying “mai diet pe hu aap log kha loge”? (I am on a diel can one of you have it instead?).
It is important to note here that even though the video is lately going viral, it is not a recent one and was shared over a month back.
Internet rages at Ranbir for denying Prasad
The actor’s refusal to take Prasad is now drawing criticism from his fans who are condemning him for his actions in the comment section of the video.
Speaking on the same, one user penned, “RK is playing Ram? April fool’s joke hai kya Swathiji.” Another one adds, “Looks very confused…He didn’t know what he was doing and why he was doing it?”
“Then when a film fails … do all those dramas in Siddhi Vinayak temple”, wrote a third one.

You should not jump into conclusions like that. He said diet.

At least he is polite to say he won’t eat due to diet. People from his caum are downright rude when they get offered prasad by mistake.
Let him play what he wants, he calls himself an actor after all. We will never watch that movie. Let us see how many megaflops they can sustain.
