Actor Varun Dhawan faced criticism from netizens after he lifted supermodel Gigi Hadid and gave her a peck on the cheek during his dance performance at the grand launch of the Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre in Mumbai. Several celebrities, including Shah Rukh Khan, Ranveer Singh, and Priyanka Chopra Jonas, also performed on Day 2 of the event. Despite giving Gigi a Bollywood-style welcome, Varun's gesture was labeled "cheap" and "highly inappropriate" by some netizens who found it unprofessional.
