Rishi Kapoor can be called brazen pretty easily especially the way he goes on a rant on Twitter. He has done that before, recently he took on the Gandhi family. He wanted people to think if it's worth naming places after the Gandhi family. He was relentless on Twitter trying to prove what he is saying is absolutely right. He even went as far as saying, "Change Gandhi family assets named by (the) Congress. Bandra/Worli Sea Link to Lata Mangeshkar or J.R.D. Tata Link road. Baap ka maal samajh rakha tha.” Yes, it got a bit insinuating and politicos from the Congress party responded to it in their own way. But nothing beats the naming a public toilet after him. Yes, that has happened and Congress supporters are behind it.
Kapoor's remarks on the way important places are named in India didn't go down well with Congress supporters in Allahabad who named a sulabh shauchalay after him. When a daily got in touch with him to get his reaction on the same, the actor chuckled. "I am thrilled. At least I will be of some use to someone. These people (Congress loyalists) are of no use to anyone. I take pride in the fact that the Sulabh Shauchalaya is named after me because it is the Prime Minister’s pet project right now."
The actor then switched to graver mood to hammer his point across as to what he intended by all this. He added, "On a serious note, it really doesn’t matter to me what they do. They seem to have not understood what I implied by my tweets. I have nothing against the Nehru or Gandhi family. I am against the people exploiting their family name."
Well, we think there are graver issues that what a national airport is called in India. Next time, we hope you will focus on that Mr. Kapoor.
