Netizens took a great interest in the picture which soon went viral, and speculations over the intention of the act began surfacing on social media.
However, when Ranveer himself was asked to comment on the real reason behind the picture during the trailer launch interview of Ranveer's upcoming film with Alia Bhatt, 'Gully Boy', he explained that the trio was seeking the blessings of Ranveer's “lady luck” who is also the “Lakshmi who has come home”.
Ranveer also told Pinkvilla, that right before the said picture was taken, his friends were talking about Ranveer's “lady luck”, and how “Lakshmi (as in the Goddess of wealth) has come home”.
So, the trio felt that they should take Lakshmi's blessings. He also added that, “So, she blessed us and we did that and it was a cute moment.”
