Fans are in complete shock after a video surfaced on social media in which Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor was caught snatching and throwing a fan’s mobile phone after he tried to take a selfie. Ranbir Kapoor grabbed headlines days after the trailer of his upcoming rom-com Tu Jhoothi Main Makkar was released. However, Ranbir Kapoor came under the social media scanner after his video of throwing mobile phones went viral on social media. However, a section of people on social media said that Ranbir Kapoor’s mobile video is part of a brand promotion and the footage was planted only to create hype.
In Ranbir Kapoor’s mobile throw video, the Tu Jhoothi Main Makkar actor can be seen posing for pictures after a fan asked him to take a selfie. Dressed in blue jeans and a white t-shirt with a green jacket, the actor was spotted being asked for a selfie by a fan. First, a fan took some photos, but the photos didn’t seem to turn out well. The fan tried to take the photo again and was not happy. When he tried for the third time, Ranbir got annoyed and took the phone from him but threw it away. The full video is now breaking the internet.
