Ranveer shared some 'Dad Jokes' with his Celebrity team coach Giannis Antetokounmpo and the latter's reaction to them were wholesome. While talking to the two-time NBA MVP in the locker room, the NBA ambassador for India asked Giannis, "Where the fruits go on vacation?" While Giannis couldn't figure out the answer, Singh replied, "Pear-is (Paris)." 

Similarly, Singh asked, "How the celebrities keep cool?" Giannis replied, "Roll down the windows," however, the answer was, "they have so many fans." The Milwaukee forward got the last one correctly as Ranveer asked, "Why isn't Poker allowed to be played in the jungle?" and Giannis replied, "Because there are too many Cheetahs (cheaters)."

But everything didn't seem to go in Ranveer's favor as the Gully Boy star tried to rap in the locker room with his teammates and got brutally trolled by the fans on social media.

Hasan Minhaj posted a video on his Instagram handle and humorously asked his teammates to help Ranveer get on the scoresheet while the Bollywood star rapped about his teammates. While the celebrities laughed off, fans were not impressed with Ranveer's rap and bashed him on social media.
