Rishi Kapoor abuses Again on twitter
Rishi Kapoor is known for using twitter to express his feelings, mostly anger, towards certain things. His latest outburst on Twitter hasn’t gone unnoticed. The actor replied to a Twitter user’s criticisms of the new Sanju trailer by entering his direct message inbox and calling him names.
Aditi Mittal was quick to point out that the likes of Rishi Kapoor don’t get called out on this behaviour even while he was accessible to the media while promoting his last film.

Sanju is an upcoming biopic of actor Sanjay Dutt, whose character will be portrayed by Rishi Kapoor’s son Ranbir Kapoor alongside Paresh Rawal, Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza and others. It is directed by Rajkumar Hirani and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, set to release on June 29.
On Wednesday, Rishi Kapoor responded to a fan’s comments that the upcoming Sanju movie looked like it was trying to clean up Sanjay Dutt’s image, had said that since he was in the entertainment industry, he was qualified to understand films, adding that the fan didn’t deserve to see films at all. Rishi went on to attack the fan with more offensive language later.
Rishi Kapoor has done this on several occasions previously, and this time, comedian Aditi Mittal has called him out on his behaviour. “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,” Aditi wrote on Twitter on Thursday. She went on to imply that he isn’t the only Bollywood star guilty of this sort of behaviour. “While promoting his 102 Not Out film with master creeper, Amitabh Bachcan, NOT ONE outlet had the guts to ask him about if he’s ok with embarrassing himself in DM’s on Twitter,” she said, “Coz apparently this is the kind of behaviour expected from these heros. India is sick with hate & misogyny. Why does no one in the film community call this out? Because it’s Rishi Kapoor?”

Journalist Rituparna Chaterjee reminded her twitter followers that she was blocked by Rishi Kapoor for criticising one of his tweets.
Rishi Kapoor blocked me for civilly criticizing one of his tweets. What an utterly disgusting, reprehensible man. Shame on the film journalism community for remaining silent about his out of control behaviour on DMs. Repeat offender. https://t.co/XPlVah0WTB
