A Huge Protest Broke Out Outside Ujjain Temple Ahead Of Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor’s Visit

Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor were in Ujjain on Tuesday to visit Mahakaleshwar Temple but they were stopped by Bajrang Dal activists from entering the temple after the actor’s old interview on eating beef went viral.

Activists stopped Bollywood actor

A protest broke out on Tuesday as Bajrang Dal activists stopped Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt from entering the Mahakal temple in Madhya Pradesh’s Ujjain citing Ranbir Kapoor’s past comment on beef-eating.


An activist said Ranbir Kapoor made degrading comments on ‘gau mata’ as he has said beef eating was good. “We won’t allow them to enter the Mahakal temple. We were only showing black flags, but police charged at us,” he said.

Witnesses said despite the cane charge by the police, the protesters did not allow Brahmastra actors Ranbir and Alia to enter the temple premises. Bajrang Dal workers raised ‘Jai Shriram’ slogans when Ranbir and Alia arrived at the spot to take darshan.

In the video, a Bajrang Dal activist said that they were peacefully protesting against the actors with black flags but the police started cane-charging them.


After promoting the film Brahmastra in Mumbai, Chennai, and Hyderabad, the lead actors of Brahmastra had taken a flight to Ujjain hoping to visit the Mahakaleshwar Temple along with director Ayan Mukerji.

Ranbir’s beef-eating remark

The protest erupted after an old interview of Ranbir Kapoor came to light where he said that he loves to eat beef. During the promotions of Rockstar, in 2011, he said, “My family is from Peshawar, so a lot of Peshawari food has come with them. I am a mutton, paya, and beef fan. Yeah, I am a big beef fan,” he had said.

The old video has resurfaced ahead of the release of Brahmastra and Ranbir Kapoor is being called ‘beef guy from Peshawar’ by the ‘boycott gang’.


Since Alia Bhatt is pregnant, the couple decided not to go to the temple amid the unrest. Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor returned to Indore without darshan. From Indore, they will take a flight to Mumbai, said Ashish Singh, the Collector of Ujjain.
