During the press conference, Ranbir was asked about the ‘phailod’ comment that he recently made in middle of a live session on social media.
Apologising to those who felt offended with his statement, Ranbir Kapoor said, “Firstly, I love my wife with everything I have in my life. It's a joke that didn't turn out to be funny.
