Bollywood celebs support Ranveer Singh
As Ranveer continues to be at the receiving end of trolling, some of his co-stars have lent support to him. Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, both of whom have worked with Ranveer, guarded him against the trolls. During a press meeting of his upcoming film Ek Villain Returns, Arjun said, "You should be allowed to be yourself. He is that way. I don't think if Ranveer Singh does anything without being himself. He doesn't show off. If he thinks it is right, to be in that way he wants, if he wants to celebrate being comfortable in his own way, I think we should respect that."
