Rishi Kapoor, who became the heartthrob of millions after Bobby (1973), held his crown of one of the most liked Bollywood romantic heroes of all time till mid 90s. Then he switched to author-backed character roles.
He kept himself relevant with films like Luck By Chance, Agneepath, Aurangzeb and D Day. He is still a favourite with filmmakers ready to experiment with older characters that require an established face.
Then came Twitter for Rishi Kapoor and suddenly the world saw the persona celebrities talked about for so many years. We all had heard the stories of Rishi Kapoor giving a piece of his mind to unprofessional actors, or him expressing concerns over civic issues. Never shy of putting out his opinion, Kapoor had an image of a senior you don’t want to rub the wrong way.
His tweets started to create storms on the internet. Sometimes fans came in his support, sometimes they refrained, but nothing stopped him.
From tweeting about Kim Kardashian in a ‘mesh bag’ to being questioned for tweeting a kid video, he kept us amazed.
On his 65th birthday, here is a list of some of his most talked about tweets.
