Wake up Ranbir and smell the insecticide

When Ranbir Kapoor accidentally sprayed an insecticide instead of a deodorant on his underarms, he had to take a shower to get rid of the strong smell

You can call it a case of mistaken identity. When Ranbir Kapoor reached out for his deodorant in his make-up room, little did he know that he would lay his hands on a can of insecticide instead. It was only when Ranbir had sprayed the insecticide on his underarms that he realised his folly but by then it was too late. He had an extreme burning sensation and was smelling so strongly of the insectide that he had to take a shower to get rid of the smell.

Ranbir Kapoor and Ayan Mukerji

A source says, “Someone had unintentionally kept a can of insecticide on Ranbir’s make-up table as the production guys were using it to keep the flies away. When Ranbir came near his table with the intention of spraying the deodorant, he was chatting with a crew member. So without looking at the label of the bottle, he just picked it up and sprayed it on his underarms. Immediately, he got a burning sensation and that’s when he looked at the bottle and realised his mistake. However, he could do little about it then as he was immediately called for the shot. So despite the pain, he went on the sets , only to have the crew members burst out laughing. Later, when the stench was stronger, it was impossible to continue working, and Ranbir was asked to do something about it. So he took a shower to get rid of the smell and continued shooting thereafter. After that Ranbir has promised himself to be doubly careful about his deodorants.” Ranbir remained unavailable for comment.

Ranbir will accompany Ayan Mukerji on a holiday to Argentina later this month

Ranbir Kapoor is set to go on a very unusual holiday with Ayan Mukerji, director of Wake Up Sid, later this month.

Confirming the news, Ayan says, “Ranbir and I have planned to take off with a backpack to Argentina. Why Argentina? Because we don’t want to go to the usual destinations. Europe is so done-to-death. We chose Argentina because it gives off a certain kind of energy that I want to explore. We just want to take off without any timetable or agenda.”

Ranbir is currently reworking his busy schedule to take time out for the trip. In case Ranbir can’t make it, Ayan plans to go all by himself for the holiday.
