Mumbai: Bollywood star, Ranbir Kapoor is gearing up for the release of his upcoming mythological film Brahmastra.

In the video that is now going viral, Ranbir can be heard saying, “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.”
