A complaint was filed at the Ghatkopar police station in Mumbai, accusing Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor and his family of supposedly offending religious sentiments in their viral Christmas lunch video. 


  • A video of Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor celebrating Christmas has led to a complaint filed in Mumbai. 
  • The complainant accused Kapoor and his family of "hurting religious sentiments" during their family Christmas lunch. 
  • The video shows Kapoor, along with his wife Alia Bhatt, participating in the Christmas flambé tradition, where pudding is briefly set aflame after pouring liquor on top of it. 
  • Sanjay Tiwari, the complainant, alleged that the video depicts the actor pouring alcohol onto a cake, igniting it, and simultaneously uttering the phrase "Jai Mata Di!"
  • The video is from Kunal Kapoor's Christmas brunch, where Ranbir, Alia, and their daughter Raha were present.

Further into the complaint 

  • The complainant Tiwari said in his complaint that in Hinduism, the fire god is usually invoked before other deities. 
  • The complaint by Tiwari said that Ranbir Kapoor and his family purposefully included intoxicants in their celebration of a different religious event, alongside another religious festival.
  • He argued that the act of setting the cake on fire and chanting 'Jai Mata Di' upset his religious feelings.
  • So far, no First Information Report (FIR) has been filed in this case against the Animal actor.
