Bollywood Red Rishi Kapoor Khullam Khulla Rishi Kapoor Uncensored Rajiv Gandhi Controversy

Rishi Kapoor is yet again in news with his blunt expression of his opinions, for which he is known. The actor has become a social media celebrity for his brutally honest posts and tweets. Recently also, he launched his autobiography “Khullam Khulla: Rishi Kapoor Ucensored” which has a fascinating collection of anecdotes, stories, revelations and facts that gives interesting insight into the film industry of his time and a different perspective on the reality of that time. (you can buy Rishi Kapoor‘s autobiography “Khullam Khulla: Rishi Kapoor Ucensored from here.) This time, it’s political.

This time, Rishi Kapoor has returned to an earlier controversy he started last year while speaking at the Jaipur Literature Festival on Friday. Last year in May, Rishi posted a tweet saying “If roads in Delhi can be changed why not Congress assets/property ke naam? Was in Chandigarh wahan bhi Rajeev Gandhi assets? Socho? Why?”

Also, commenting on a proposal to rename Delhi’s Akbar Road after former President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, Rishi Kapoor had posted this tweet:

In the Jaipur Lit Fest, responding to a question, Rishi Kapoor revisited the topic.

“There are so many structures and roads named after the Gandhi family in Delhi alone. Is it necessary to have it in such numbers? What purpose does it serve?” – Rishi Kapoor

“I was angry when I saw a bridge being named after Rajiv Gandhi. I mean it may be a way of paying respect, good that he was there but why name structures after him even now? Can you ignore the contribution of Lata Mangeshkar or JRD Tata? Why not name these structures after such figures rather than political leaders.I have no complaints against any one family but when I saw structures being named after the family, it irked me because there are so many others like Lata Mangeshkar and JRD Tata who have contributed to Mumbai. Whichever political party comes, they name the structures and yojnas after them. I think the constitution should ban the naming of such structures after politicians. ” – Rishi Kapoor

Rishi Kapoor also visited the “demonetisation” topic saying that it did not make much difference to Bollywood:

“I can tell you Bollywood has not been affected by demonetisation. There is no stashed money there. It is the real estate and the black market that is, rightly, suffering.” – Rishi Kapoor
