Ranbir Kapoor is facing backlash after a recent video surfaced showing him saying ‘Jai Mata Di’ while lighting an alcohol-infused cake. This action has led to the filing of an FIR against him. Read further for details.


Ranbir Kapoor, enjoying the success of his recent film “Animal,” faces controversy following a viral video. An FIR has been filed against the actor by Sanjay Tiwari, alleging religious sentiment infringement. Discover more below.

A prominent figure in the Indian film industry, Ranbir Kapoor embarked on his cinematic journey with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Saawariya” in 2007. Despite clashing with Deepika Padukone’s debut film, “Om Shanti Om,” the movie failed to captivate audiences. However, Kapoor gradually endeared himself to viewers with versatile performances. His notable works include “Wake Up Sid!,” “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani,” “Sanju,” “Tamasha,” “Rockstar,” and more.

A recently circulated video featured Ranbir Kapoor alongside his family, including Alia Bhatt, reportedly during India Today’s annual Christmas lunch at Kunal Kapoor’s residence.

The viral footage showed Kunal seated in front of the cake while Zahan Kapoor poured wine on it. Ranbir then lit the cake, uttering ‘Jai Mata Di,’ sparking the ensuing controversy, as per India Today’s report.

Sanjay Tiwari, represented by advocates Ashish Rai and Pankaj Mishra, lodged an FIR at the Ghatkopar police station, accusing Ranbir Kapoor and his family of causing offense to religious sentiments and insulting the Sanatan Dharm.

The complaint detailed, “In Hinduism, the fire god is traditionally invoked before other deities. Ranbir Kapoor and his family deliberately used intoxicants during celebrations of another religion’s festival and chanted ‘Jai Mata Di’.” Ranbir faces charges under sections 295 A, 298, 500, and 34. No complaints have been filed against the other members of the Kapoor family.



Ranbir Kapoor’s most recent film outing was reported to be “Animal,” directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga. The movie premiered in theaters on December 1st. Allegedly grossing over 500 crore at the box office, it’s anticipated to surpass the lifetime collections of Gadar 2.
