Mumbai: What was supposed to be a very special evening celebrating the great Raj Kapoor’s 93rd death anniversary, turned out to be an ugly one, thanks to Rishi Kapoor.
The venue was ITC Maurya in Delhi and the occasion was the release of a book, Raj Kapoor: The One and Only Showman that the five Kapoor children — Randhir, Rishi, Rajeev, Reema and Ritu had come together for the occasion.
All went well until Rishi decided to throw a tantrum, when he spotted some journalists at the venue. An eyewitness at the venue recalls, “The journalists were present on invitation from the organisers of the event. And yet, Rishi ordered them out, much to the embarrassment of the hosts who tried to reason with him. But the actor wanted the journalists to be thrown out. The hotel staff had no choice but to comply.” This isn’t the first time that Rishi has shot his mouth off.
Rishi, who is notorious for his temperament, lost his cool even in October this year. Even before media interactions could commence at the event he was present at, the actor categorically stated that he won’t answer any any questions about his son Ranbir Kapoor, who was in the news because pictures of him and actress Mahira Khan were leaked on the Internet, in which the two of them were seen together, smoking.
