For those unaware, in 2011, Ranbir Kapoor sat for an interview with Kunal Vijayakar for his show called The Foodie in Times Now. The actor along with the host was talking about food and the Brahmastra star in one of the segments revealed how much he likes eating red meat rather than chicken and said, “I’m not a big chicken guy, I feel the chicken is the soya food on non-vegetarians, I’m a more mutton, paaya, beef, red meet, I’m a big beef guy.”
Part of the clip was shared by a netizen and now they want to boycott his upcoming film. Reacting to the same, a user wrote, “A beef guy Mr Kapoor can’t respect our religion,” another wrote, “These people are namesake Hindus Culturally jihadi tribal,” a third wrote, “Must Boycott this ‘beef guy’. His father was also beef lover and publicly he advocated it. They are blots on Hindu culture and society.”
However, there were some people who came out in support of the Brahmastra actor Ranbir Kapoor and said that someone’s food choice shouldn’t affect others while adding that the reason can’t be used to boycott a film and even slammed the boycott gang.
“It’s his choice what he wants to eat or not eat. Who are we to tell somebody what to eat and what not to eat. This is as good as interfering in somebody’s presonal life,” another wrote, “Buffalo meat. You edited the video and cut that part. India main cow meat kaha milta hai?” a third wrote, “Atleast he is doing something to make a movie on our history. What is your contribution apart from spreading negativity?” a fourth wrote, “In India, beef is a term interchangeably used for the meat of buffalo 🐃 . Buffalo meat is legally available in most Indian states including Gujarat and Maharashtra though the demand is less. Also some Hindu temples sacrifice buffalo.”
