Actor Rishi Kapoor has strongly condemned the ban on liquor in Bihar by the Nitish Kumar government. He says now he might skip travelling to the state. The Bihar government on Tuesday imposed a complete ban on sale of any kind of liquor in Bihar, making it the fourth dry state of the country after Gujarat, Manipur and Nagaland.

Rishi took to Twitter on Wednesday to share his feelings about the ban. “Bihar you will encourage bootlegging and illicit liquor. Prohibition has failed worldwide. Wake up!You will also lose Rs 3000 cr revenue loss,” Rishi tweeted.

“10 years imprisonment for alcohol - Five years for illegal possession of arms? Wah Nitish! Me no coming to Bihar! How myopic can you get in 2016?” he added.

The Kapoor And Sons actor also shared a photograph of himself from the 1983 film Coolie.

“Practising drinking since Coolie days. But smoking and drinking is hazardous. People please abstain from it,” he captioned the image.
