- Rishi and Neetu Kapoor attended a special screening of Padmaavat
- Excellent work. So very proud of you: the Kapoors' note read
- Rishi Kapoor was also trolled for posting a tweet referencing the film
On Thursday, Rishi Kapoor was criticised by the Internet for posting an inappropriate tweet (which he later deleted) referencing "Padmaavat" anti-hero Ranveer Singh and Karan Johar's sexual preferences. Twitter users schooled Mr Kapoor telling him his joke was inappropriate. Some asked the actor if he was drunk.
"Padmaavat" opened in theatres on January 25 and collected a whopping Rs 18 crore, considering the widespread protest against the film's release headlined by Rajput Karni Sena. The Karni Sena and other fringe outfits have alleged that the film distorts historical facts which demean Rani Padmini.
