The user had posted a meme on Twitter featuring a still of 2013 film Besharam, starring Rishi Kapoor, Neetu and Ranbir, and referred to the actor's tweets on Rahul Gandhi's speech in Berkeley.
 

Earlier this month, the Do Dooni Chaar actor had slammed politician Rahul Gandhi on his dynasty politics statement. He tweeted: "In the 106 years of Indian cinema of India, Kapoor's contribution is 90 years. And each generation is chosen by public on merit." Another tweet read, "So don't bullshit people on "Dynasty" You have to earn people's respect and love through hard work not zabardasti and gundagardi."

In an earlier interview with Hindustan Times, Rishi Kapoor defended having directly messaged his followers and said, "You can't follow me and abuse me and you think I will keep quiet... Once I was corrected that I should not put this on my timeline. Now I go to them and do this. I will not let anyone try and stomp over me. No one can walk over me."

On the work front, Rishi Kapoor was last seen in Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi. He will next feature in Umesh Shukla's 102 Not Out opposite Amitabh Bachchan.
