At a Shamshera event, Ranbir said Sanjay would call him and yell at him for making “bad movies.” He said, “When I worked in Barfi and Rockstar, I trained in his (Sanjay’s) gym. He used to tell me, ‘Tu do saal se yahan gym kar raha hai. Par teri body kahan hai (You’ve been on for the past two years exercising, but your body doesn’t show it)?’ He would also ask me, ‘Tu abhi Barfi kar raha hai (At this point you’re doing Barfi). What’s your next movie then? Peda? Laddu?’”
