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.
Rishi Kapoor keeps abusing people online, and every news and entertainment portal keeps covering his movies and interviews as if this kind of behaviour is NORMAL. https://t.co/HXUv3L1eIG— hot takes 4 koolkidz (@awryaditi) May 31, 2018
While promoting his “102 not out” film with master creeper @SrBachchan NOT ONE outlet had the guts to ask him about if he’s ok with embarrassing himself in DM’s on Twitter. Coz apparently this is the kind of behaviour expected from these heros. India is sick with hate & misogyny— hot takes 4 koolkidz (@awryaditi) May 31, 2018
Why does no one in the film community call this out? Because it’s Rishi Kapoor?— hot takes 4 koolkidz (@awryaditi) May 31, 2018
The veteran would’ve surely felt like replying to this one too, but he showed some self-control here at least....
