Fan praises Rishi Kapoor's 'Mulk'; he insults fan's English
Quite unsurprisingly, Rishi Kapoor has created controversy on Twitter once again. The 'Mulk' star was praised by a fan for his acting in the film and the social relevance of the same. However, instead of accepting the adoring fan's praise, Rishi trolled him for his English. Understandably, Twitterati was not pleased and soon the thread was taken down completely. Here's what happened.
Unanticipated reaction to a kind tweet
Rishi was praised by a fan on Twitter for his role in 'Mulk'. The fan said that his role as a victim of the situation was simply astounding. Although the message was slightly incoherent, the said fan also praised how he was represented in the trial scene. More importantly, the fan who is a lawyer himself appreciated the social relevance of the film.
Rishi Kapoor's response was in poor taste
However, the temperamental Rishi replied to the fan, "Thank you Sir. But being a lawyer yourself, your English language, grammar and spellings are so poor? I cannot understand what you tried saying! Must brush up!!" Really, what?
A history of problematic behavior on Twitter
The veteran actor has a history of problematic behavior on Twitter. However, this reaction to praise was in extremely poor taste. Rishi is a serial abuser on Twitter, he has often blocked people and even shared a few posts that could be seen as misogynist. One hopes Rishi shows a little more sensitivity online! Is it a big ask?
