1. When Deepika Padukone famously answered that Ranbir Kapoor should promote ‘condom’ brands
Once considered the power couple of Bollywood, the relationship between Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor was second to none, and fans used to idolize them as the perfect couple as the duo gave positive vibes during their relationship in 2008. However, in the twist of the tale, Deepika found out that Ranbir was blatantly cheating on her. Right after their split up, Deepika got the tattoo removed that showed RK, the initials of Ranbir Kapoor, written on her neck.
During Koffee With Karan season 3, Deepika shared the set of the show with Ranbir’s ex-beloved Sonam Kapoor. Both of the Bollywood divas shared some intrepid comments about their common ex-boyfriend that took the media and fans by storm. When Karan questioned Deepika about the one thing that Ranbir should promote, the actress stated, “endorse a condom brand.” She was also of the view that Ranbir’s boyfriend skills needed some improvement. As stated by Deepika, “He’s a wonderful friend to have. I think he needs to work on his boyfriend skills a bit.”
2. When Shahid Kapoor taunted his ex-girlfriend Priyanka Chopra and made her comparison with Kareena Kapoor
The sizzling love story of Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor ignited during the production of the film Kaminey. The Bollywood superstars fell in love with one another head over heels, though Mimi never publicly acknowledged her tie-in with Shahid, whereas the Jab We Met star once agreed to have a 2-year long romantic relationship with former Miss World.
Once, Shahid graced the set of Koffee With Karan with his brother Ishaan Khattar and in the rapid-fire segment, Karan asked the superstar to pick the more talented actress between Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor Khan. In response to the question, Shahid named Kareena as a relatively talented lead lady, while labeling Priyanka a hard worker. For those who are unaware, Shahid also had a fiery relationship with Kareena until the duo parted ways during the production of Jab We Met.
3. When Katrina Kaif answered wittingly when asked about her ex-sweetheart, Salman Khan
It is a well-known fact that Salman Khan introduced Katrina Kaif into the realm of Bollywood. Since then, both superstars were considered love birds, rumored to have a lovey-dovey relationship. The duo started dating back in 2005 and after 5 years of their romantic association, the couple renounced their relationship due to Katrina’s professed betrayal of Salman in 2010 after she was caught having a relationship with Ranbir Kapoor.
When Katrina was asked about her ex-boyfriend Salaman Khan during an episode of Koffee With Karan, she boldly answered “It’s tricky,” when asked what she would call Salman if he were food. The answer was intended to make the claim that her ex-beau has a mixed personality. The answer shocked the show host Karan and other celebrity guests, Arjun Kapoor and Anushka Sharma.
4. When Sonam Kapoor suggested that her ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor requires a fashion guru
Sonam Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor kicked off their Bollywood career with their debut flick Saawariya (2007) directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. In the beginning, the duo was considered quite close, and rumors started to brew that there was a passionate affair between them. However, after Saawariya flopped massively at the Box Office, the gossip of a romantic relationship between the Bollywood newcomers apparently vanished. Things started to get somewhat turbulent between Sonam and Ranbir.
In 2010, on the set of Koffee With Karan, Sonam took several digs at Ranbir, and during one of the episodes, the Bollywood sweetheart famously commented, “Ranbir isn’t sexy unless he strips. He needs a stylist.”
5. When Sonam Kapoor commiserated with Ranbir Kapoor’s ex-partner Deepika Padukone, for hanging on to him for so long
Sonam sympathized with Deepika Padukone once, one of Ranbir’s exes, for “hanging on” and getting along with him for this long. The Saawariya’s lead actress said that she has known Ranbir almost all her life, but she is not sure about him as a boyfriend. In her statement she said:
“Ranbir is a great friend. But I don’t know if he’s a great boyfriend. Honestly speaking. He’s a really nice guy, he’s got family values, he’s really respectful. I’ve known Ranbir all my life but as a boyfriend, I don’t know she did a great job at hanging on to him for so long.”
6. When Sonam Kapoor Labeled Ranbir A ‘Mama’s Boy’
Sonam Kapoor always responds very savagely whenever it’s about her ex. In an exciting episode of KWK, Sonam blatantly asked why are girls drooling over Ranbir Kapoor as he is still a “Mama’s Boy”. She also revealed about her ex that his mother, Neetu Kapoor still cut his toenails for him. Sonam stated:
“Are girls drooling over Ranbir? He isn’t sexy at all. Ranbir is a mama’s boy; his mother cuts his toenails for him!”
7. When Ranbir Kapoor stated that Sonam is ‘least sexy’
Despite the fact that Sonam Kapoor kept making nasty comments and statements about Ranbir Kapoor in her many interactions with the media, Ranbir has always avoided reacting the same. But once when he appeared on Koffee With Karan, Ranbir was to rate the female actresses depending on their appealing looks. In answer to this, Ranbir ranked Sonam the “least sexy” from the list provided. Meanwhile, Imran Khan, also present on the show with Ranbir, made an excuse and called Sonam a “classic beauty” in response to Ranbir’s “she is not sexy” comment.
