Actor Rishi Kapoor loves to talk about random things and often shares interesting anecdotes from his day-to-day life on Twitter. The actor, who is currently undergoing post-cancer treatment in New York, was left bewildered by the heavy price tags on sneakers in a showroom.

He shared pictures of sneakers with the price tags, and wrote, “Zoom on to the prices below and see it. Reminded of the saying. ‘Joota sone ka ho ya chaandi ka-pehna toh jaata hai paon mein’ Crazy!”


He shared more pictures from his outing and wrote, “Biggest sneaker store I have seen with more than 12,000 styles and models in NY. Shocked to see sneakers sell for $40,000/$27,000/$25,000/$20,000 etc...Most sell for$5,000 and above.”


The actor had also reacted to India’s win over West Indies in the recent ICC World Cup match played at Manchester. “Congratulations Supreme team Nothing to be taken for granted. ICC World Cup is ours Decimating all. Fingers crossed.” India beat West Indies by 125 runs on Thursday.


Rishi had flown to the US for cancer treatment in September last year. He was accompanied by wife Neetu Singh while son Ranbir Kapoor, his girlfriend Alia Bhatt and Rishi’s daughter Riddhima Kapoor and her family visit them regularly. Several Bollywood celebrities have also paid them a visit in last months.

They recently dined with Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai and their daughter Aaradhya, who are vacationing in the US. Among the latest to visit them are Sanjay Kapoor, wife Maheep and daughter Shanaya.
