The interview is from a decade ago when Ranbir Kapoor was promoting his then-upcoming film Rockstar. In the interview, while talking about his food habits, the actor expressed his fondness for beef. This revelation did not go down well with a section of people. The video of the interview is being shared and reshared now with fresh calls for a boycott of Brahmastra.
A Twitter user also shared the clip with the caption, “Shiva in real life”. It was followed by a big number of comments agreeing to boycott the film over his food choice. However, some Twitter users have also supported Ranbir saying his choice of food should not matter to others and this is no reason to Boycott the film.
