"Ranbir Kapoor mocking SRK in an iconic Tujhe Dekha song while peeing in the #Besharam trailer proves that he still needs to grow up. #crap (sic)," Twitter user BoldMonk posted on the micro-blogging website. Another user, who goes by the name 'King of Bollywood' wrote, "Ranbir copies SRK poise and Salman style. Both r impossible to do (sic)."
On the other hand, Ranbir received several compliments for his performance. "The difference between SRK and Ranbir isn't just the age. It's that the former tries too hard, and the latter is utterly effortless", film critic Mihir Fadnavis tweeted.
