IPL. You got world players. Afghanistan makes debut. My plea is please consider Pakistani players.Phir match hoga! Hum bade log hain.Please!— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) April 4, 2017
Later the same month, he wrote "Pakistan just wants hatred" after Kulbushan Jadhav, accused of spying for India, was sentenced to death by Pakistan. Mr Kapoor was inundated with angry tweets, rebuking some as being trolls and telling one particular commenter to "mind your language." His last word in the exchange was this, possibly a reference to his IPL plea on Pakistan's behalf:
Sorry India.Tried to broker peace via actors,films,sports etc..with Pakistan,but they just want hatred,so be it!Taali do haath se bajti hai!— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) April 10, 2017
Mr Kapoor, who has himself been accused of being hateful in his tweets and responses, was last seen in 2016 film Kapoor And Sons. His current projects include 102 Not Out with Amitabh Bachchan and Manto, in which he has a small role.
