Sanjay Tiwari, who filed the complaint at Ghatkopar police station through his lawyers Ashish Rai and Pankaj Mishra, claimed that in the video, the actor is seen pouring liquor on cake and setting it on fire while saying “Jai Mata Di”. In Hinduism, fire god is invoked before invoking other deities, but Kapoor and his family members deliberately used intoxicants while celebrating the festival of another religion and chanted “Jai Mata Di”, the complaint said. This hurt the complainant’s religious sentiments, it alleged.
When contacted, lawyer Ashish Rai said, “We have filed a case with Ghatkopar police, and had a meeting with them post the registration of the case. What Ranbir has done has hurt people and the reason is that they have used alcohol for a ritual and fire was lit and they chanted Jai Mata Di. In Hindu religion, fire symbolises Jwaladevi who is also a Goddess.”
When asked if they want Ranbir kapoor to apologize, Rai added, “of course we want him to apologise and I will be discussing this with my client and if he does, it will be good. ”
