The Internet Cannot Get Over Ranveer Singhs Uncomfortable Kiss With Bear Grylls

Ranveer Singh recently appeared on Bear Grylls’ show, Ranveer Vs. Wild With Bear Grylls in which the two of them ventured into the wild, trying to survive the great outdoors. Now, as we all know, Ranveer is more enthusiastic and energetic than most other people. But the show’s host probably was not prepared for the level of excitement Ranveer would show for him and seemed visibly uncomfortable.

We say this because a clip of Ranveer jumping onto Grylls and kissing his face overenthusiastically has gone viral online, leading internet users slamming Ranveer for his behavior.

In the clip which has gone viral, Ranveer and Grylls are on a helicopter ride, during which Ranveer starts kissing Grylls’ cheeks and neck while a very taken-aback Grylls does not know how to react. Visibly shaking, Ranveer holds Grylls’ head and yells, “Haye more imported Tarzan, more Mowgli! ” at him. Like us, Grylls was speechless too.

While there were several other tweets roasting Ranveer for his strange actions, this is actually not funny.

Ranveer might have meant well but people’s boundaries should be respected

We often think that all displays of affection are harmless, and that the giver did not mean any harm. While that may be, it is also true that the receiver could be put off by the invasion of their personal space, and might feel discomfort at such proximity with someone they did not consent to having such an exchange with. It does not matter what one’s sex or gender is, and it does not matter if it was just a peck on the cheek.

These are some lessons we as a society can learn from this instead of laughing about it at home.
