When he was asked about Ranbir's claims, he said, "Ranbir ki marzi, he is entitled to say what he wants."

In case you don't know, Ranbir told NDTV, "My uncle Randhir Kapoor, who is going through an early stage of dementia, and he came to me after the film and said, 'Tell dad that he is amazing, and where is he, let's call him'.
