Recently, Ranbir appeared on Kareena's show, What Women Want, wherein he bared his heart out and talked about his personal life and parenting journey. However, he shocked everyone when he recalled his school days and said he got bullied. Kareena was surprised by the statement and asked why he got bullied. To this, Ranbir said:

"Sometimes, you know, being an actor's son, your seniors sometimes bully you because you are a soft target. I think somewhere that also kind of hardens you. It prepares you for the world. I think it was a blessing only. I don't see it as 'Oh, I'm tormented by the fact that I was bullied'. But, I was bullied in school for being an actor's son, for sure."
