Rishi Kapoor, undaunted by repeated trolling, has posted another tweet about Pakistan, this one an Independence Day greeting. Mr Kapoor, 64, tweeted last night, "Wishing all my friends from Pakistan a Happy 'Youm-e-Azaadi' ka din. Happy Independence Day. Let peace, brotherhood and love prevail." The responses he received are divided between others also wishing Pakistan and those offended by the actor's tweet. "This doesn't qualify for a reply," said one comment.
