Ranbir Kapoor clarifies statement on touching Aishwarya’s cheeks


Actor Ranbir Kapoor has clarified a comment he made on “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” co-star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan during an interview and said he respects her.

While talking about the intimate scenes between him and Aishwarya in the film, Ranbir apparently said in a radio interview that he felt shy, so much so that his hands used to shiver and he was hesitant to even touch her cheeks.
