As per several articles published in Hindustan Times, News18 and NewsX, Ranveer’s impromptu jump left several of his fans injured and hurt.

While a section of Twitter criticised Ranveer for his mistimed jump as “publicity stunt”, several tweets also claim that Ranveer’s jump indeed hurt a few during the show. “My friend got a really bad sprain on his neck because of your stupid act. You are a married man now… Grow up a bit,” read a tweet while another angry user added: “No civil sense in the guy. A public personality shouldn’t be this careless, no? Could have badly hurt the people.”
