In an interview with Hindustan Times, Gauahar Khan opened up on her cryptic tweet and said that her tweet was not “just with what Ranbir Kapoor said or how it was perceived”.

Gauahar Khan further added, “I’m generally talking about life and how people’s tolerance level has hit rock bottom. Anything that is said is sensitive to anyone and everyone. Where is the [sense of] humour? Where are the people taking things in jest? If he was saying that to a stranger, of course, people can take offence to that. But that’s his wife, for God’s sake! I feel people should take humour for the way it is [meant]. Unless it is obnoxious or is in the racist zone or something extreme… But it’s Ranbir’s wife. Chedhkhaani nahin hoti [between spouses]? Hum kitna dekhte the films mein… I have seen my parents [teasing each other]. People need to relax.”

Gauahar Khan was also slammed for sharing her opinions on Salman Khan’s reality show Bigg Boss to which she replied, “If anyone turns around and asks me why I had an opinion on Bigg Boss, then hello! It’s a show about opinions.”
