Mumbai: Rishi Kapoor has done it again. The veteran actor who often makes headlines on Twitter for posts, outbursts at fans or goof ups, has lost his cool on the microblogging website again.
So a Twitter user slammed the recently released trailer of Kapoor’s son Ranbir’s ‘Sanju’, which is a biopic on Sanjay Dutt. He was of the opinion that the film was ‘blatant attempt to clean up’ the actor’s image and that a ‘criminal is a criminal’ due to his involvement in the 1993 bomb blasts, also calling the director Rajkumar Hirani ‘an absolute scum.’
Kapoor Sr. was not too pleased and gave the guy a piece of his mind. Calling him a ‘prick’ and a ‘swipe’, the actor lashed at out at him, saying they are in the entertainment business and not repairing anyone’s image, also asking him what he understood of cinema and asserting that he doesn’t even deserve to see films.
This is not the first time Kapoor has abused a Twitter user on direct message.
One occasion was when he abused a woman for sharing a meme mocking his criticism of Rahul Gandhi’s speech.
The second one was when he abused multiple women who trolled him for his quiz? ‘What’s common between Karan Johar and Rishi Kapoor?’
Thankfully, there wasn’t any need for asterisks as he is known to use some unmentionable words usually.
Popular stand-up comedian Aditi Mittal got furious with the latest rant and replied with her own.
She wondered how media and entertainment portals kept covering his movies and interviews as if the behaviour is normal.
She lamented why none of the journalists asked him about ‘embarrassing himself’ during ‘102 Not Out’ promotions with ‘master creeper’ Amitabh Bachchan.
Highlighting how India is sick with misogyny, she questioned if this is what is expected from the heroes and if the industry is quiet because he is Rishi Kapoor.
The veteran would’ve surely felt like replying to this one too, but he showed some self-control here at least.
