It's a common phenomenon that Bollywood celebrities are caught in the radar of controversy. They are also known to voice out their opinions and take a jibe with their opinions. In a similar incident, Kangana Ranaut screamed out her opinions against a journalist at a song launch of Judgementall Hai Kya. However, her tussle with the journalist at the event led to major squabble with the Entertainment Guild which in-turn led to banning her. The media fraternity demanded an apology from her.
Although, Kangana has refused to apologize for her deeds; the guild has disagreed to lift the ban. But, now veteran Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor has come out in her support as he partly agrees to her.
Currently, Rishi Kapoor is stationed at New York for the treatment of cancer. And during a recent interaction with Mumbai Mirror, he extensively spoke about his take on Kangana’s ban by journalists. The 66-year-old said, “Yes, I have been seeing these reports on Twitter and I am very upset with all this nonsense being written. In the last 10 months, I have not spoken to anyone from the media, though they have always supported me.”
He continued saying, “I agree with Kangana Ranaut that some people write anything and as a result, serious journalists get drawn into the controversy. When did I say I was upset? I have not been in the country for months. This is not done, it tarnishes the credibility of other journalists who write and report well. Though I do not entirely agree with what Kangana said, on this point, anyone can get upset.”
The veteran actor also revealed when we can expect him to be back in Mumbai. He shared that he has to remain in NYC for a total of eleven months. He added that he won’t be back any time before the end of August.
On the work front, Rishi will be seen in an upcoming film Jhootha Kahin Ka. However, reports are rife that Rishi is in cold terms with the makers of the upcoming film and for suddenly deciding to release the film on July 19.
