Bollywood veteran Rishi Kapoor’s love for cricket has landed him in hot water… yet again!
Previously, the Kapoor & Sons star was shut down by Pakistanis after he mocked Pakistani cricket team about the India-Pakistan final on June 18th, even before the Indian cricket team had qualified for it.
Now that the Indian cricket team will officially be competing against Pakistan tomorrow, it was only expected that Rishi would return with some more mean tweets. And boy, did he!
The Bobby actor took to Twitter yesterday after India’s win against Bangladesh in the semifinals. “We don’t need to say anything more! Tradition of destroying the opposition ,as has always been the case,will continue! Blues are invincible!” he posted.
He then mocked Pakistan Cricket Board. “PCB. Cricket team bhejna please. Earlier hockey ya Kho Kho team bhejin thin. Kyon ki 18th June (Fathers Day) Baap khel raha tumhare saath lol!”
Soon after his tweet, Pakistanis were back at it, giving Rishi a piece of their mind.
And this wasn’t even it! Rishi then went a step ahead and posted,”Acha choddo yaar. Tum log jeeton aur hazaaron baar jeeto… sirf terrorism bandh kar do yaar. Mujhe haar manzoor hai. We want peace and love.”
After this insensitive tweet, Pakistani Twitterati was crazy. For one, Pakistani born v-logger Zaid Ali seemed just as disappointed as we are after the Chandni actor’s tweet. He posted, “Terrorism isn’t only from Muslims. This just shows how uneducated you are. Disappointed to see a garbage tweet like this coming from you.”
And it went on…
It is indeed disappointing to see Rishi’s take on a sport that is loved on both sides of the border. Either way, may the best team win!
