Earlier this week, the actor stirred a political storm when he posted a thread of tweets, slamming the Congress Party for naming important places such as roadways, railways and airports after the Nehrus and Gandhis.

”Change Gandhi family assets named by Congress.Bandra/Worli Sea Link to Lata Mangeshkar or JRD Tata link road. Baap ka maal samjh rakha tha ?” he wrote.

The veteran actor then asked for suggestion from people on whether or not the names can be after film personalities such as Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, Ashok Kumar and Amitabh Bachchan.

“Film City should be named Dilip Kumar,Dev Anand,Ashok Kumar ya Amitabh Bachchan ke naam? Rajeev Gandhi udyog Kya hota hai? Socho doston!” Kapoor wrote.

“Imagine Mohamad Rafi Mukesh Manna Dey Kishore Kumar venues on their name like in our country. Just a suggestion” he tweeted.

“Why Indira G airport International ? Why not Mahatma Gandhi or Bhagat Singh Ambedkar or on my name Rishi Kapoor. As superficial! What say?” the next tweet read.

“Raj Kapoor has made India proud over the years all over even after his death. Certainly more than What has been perceived by politics,” it added.

Reacting to Kapoor’s tweets, the Congress called him “parochial” and said he sought “power” .

“Rishi Kapoor fails to realise the contribution of the Gandhi family towards nation building,” said Mumbai Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam .
