Why is everything named after Gandhi family, asks Rishi Kapoor

Rishi Kapoor, Congress, Gandhi family, Salman Khan, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi

New Delhi, May 18, 2016: Rishi Kapoor is turning more and more vocal on Twitter. First was his beef comments that had Twitterati up in arms and now he has broken hearts with his anti- Congress and anti-Gandhi family comments.

Rishi Kapoor not only went after Congress and asked whether the assets named after the Gandhi family were someone’s ‘baap ka maal’ or someone’s paternal property but also pitched for naming roads after other greats. His sudden outburst had Twitter shocked and people started debating as to what he said held any merit or not.

Not many know, but Raj Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor’s father, actually enjoyed great relations with the Gandhi family. In fact, Gandhi family was extremely popular among the actors and actresses of Bollywood till very recently. But it seems, that with the change in the regime and the sinking fortune of Congress, now the Gandhi family does not enjoy the halo that it once had around it. Here is what the actor wrote in a series of tweets:







While many agreed with his thought, several disagreed saying that Gandhi family too had done a lot for the nation and also that Bollywood actors are equally recognized, not just in India, but also abroad. However, by and large the Twitterati was divided on the issue.

Rishi Kapoor has been fairly active on Twitter and tweets on several things, but somehow, somewhere he lands up in a soup. Be it in Salman Khan’s case:

Or on the beef issue case. Rishi Kapoor speaking his mind on the beef controversy got him no new admirers!


So far, the Congress party has maintained silence on the issue, but it is yet to be seen what it has to say to this.  Or perhaps, it would hope that silence would be enough to shut out the criticism?
