Following the comments made by his wife, star Alia Bhatt, during an interview that went viral on social media, Ranbir Kapoor responded to the labels like “red flag” and “toxic husband/boyfriend” that internet users had given him.
The “Gangubai Kathiawadi” actor said to the uninitiated in yet another odd revelation about her husband, “One thing my husband.
when he wasn’t my husband but when he was my boyfriend as well… he would be like “wipe that off, wipe it off” because he loves the natural colour of my lips.”
While Bhatt considered it to be a charming TMI about her relationship to share with her fans, internet users found it to be anything but cute and repeated the “Animal” actor with the title “red flag” a social media word for toxic people in a relationship.
In a recent conversation, Kapoor discussed the subject and stated, “I suppose negativity is really necessary, especially if you are an artist.
If you have some work out there, I think both need to exist because then it creates a balance.
“You know sometimes a lot of things are written about you as an actor, a lot of opinions are made that are not always true and if you take it with a grain of salt because this image of mine that has been created by the movies,
The characters I play, or by the media is something that I don’t own,” he continued. It is owned by the public, by those who appreciate or detest my work, and they are free to say whatever they want about me so long as they give it a chance, so long as I can convince them that I am an actor, which has always been my main goal.
Kapoor continued, “Recently, I was reading some piece about being toxic and something connected to some statement I made, and I understand this. This is in reference to Bhatt’s words and the reports around them.
And since I support those who are combating toxic masculinity, it’s okay if they use me as their spokesperson because their struggle goes beyond my personal disappointment that they disagree with what I said. I consider the big picture.
