A shocking video of Rishi Kapoor and brother Randhir Kapoor has been trending on the social network. It depicted the Kapoor brothers abusing and shoving the journalists. The above incident had taken place during the Kapoor’s Ganpati Visarjan.
Rishi Kapoor has defended himself and his brother. He said, “I feel it is very unfair, what the news channels have shared everywhere. First of all we have no PR. We never invite anybody.

There have always been thousands and thousands of people coming to see this Ganpati of RK. They came to see Ganpati, not us. Over 64 yrs they have been coming to see the immersion. When the Ganpati leaves RK studio, everybody is excited.”
He further added that, “However, this evening there was heavy rainfall. There were so many people and so much media. We have not called them…. It is impossible when there is so much rain and public (to not lose your temper). When we are respecting God, these small time journalists poke the damn camera on your face.

You come because you know we are important and you are giving me bull** saying that I have hit you?”
