Mumbai: Rishi Kapoor brought out his A-rated performances in two films this year, ‘102 Not Out’ and ‘Mulk’ which released this Friday, but the veteran still continues being in the news more for his Twitter activities than them.
Unlike his abusive nature or goof-ups on the microblogging platform drawing reactions from Twitteratti, this time, the users got more irritated or angry as his latest tweet involved late legendary actress Sridevi.
So Kapoor Sr shared a gif of him dancing with Sridevi in their 1997 film ‘Kaun Sachcha Kaun Jhootha.’
Only that he couldn’t figure out the movie or recognise Sridevi and asked his followers to help him with it.
What film is this? And I cannot recognise the actress with me! https://t.co/NpZlqurrq8— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) August 4, 2018
The Twitter users were shocked he couldn’t recognise the actress, with whom he has done many of her iconic films like ‘Nagina’, ‘Chandni’, among others and some even thought he was joking.
Most of them, like always, pointed out his alcohol consumption and asked him to reduce it.

Then there were others who reminded him it was not funny if that was the intention, and others trolled him about his age and how they recognised the actress, but not the actor.
Agar joke tha, toh kaafi ghatiya, wahiyaat aur insensitive tha..— Sumit (@bhatakti__aatma) August 4, 2018

Nobody would have recognised you if she had not worked with you in Nagina and Chandni.— Deepa Bhatia (@_DeepaBhatia) August 4, 2018
She’s the one who danced better than you in your hay days . #Sridevi— Pretty Paris (@hindugirl17) August 4, 2018
Actress is Sri Devi— Kulbir Singh (@bsmtool) August 4, 2018

Oh ya I forgot Amisha Patel is bigger for you— Dhiraj Kumar (@AuthorDhiraj) August 4, 2018
It seems unlikely Rishi would joke about Sridevi, considering how furious he had got when people addressed her mortal remains as ‘body’. So should we give Rishi Kapoor the benefit of doubt considering it’s a slightly blurry gif?
