Rishi Kapoor is quite a hot headed superstar… The ever charming chocolate wonder of the industry has managed to set up a different kind of image of himself on social media, more so like an actual version of ‘the angry, young man’.
He is more often known to be in the news for all sorts of controversies on Twitter, be it slamming trollers to abusing them and showing them his abusive side. The actor was unfortunately suffering from cancer and was getting treated in New York for months where he would often be seen spending time with son Ranbir Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor, Alia Bhatt.
Even some of his industry friends have gone ahead to meet the yesteryear superstar. Sonu Nigam, Anupam Kher and Maniesh Paul are some of the many names to have met Rishi ji at New York.
But the best news broke only recently when the news came out open in the media that our very dear ‘Chintu ji’ is cancer free and has been treated successfully.
And guess what he is excited about as soon as he is treated and normal once again? The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
But the actor seems to be disappointed about something.. The reason is Rishabh Pant’s exclusion from the World Cup squad. To express his disappointment, Rishi Kapoor directly tweets to Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri and asks,
Why is Rishabh Pant not in the squad for the World Cup? You there? @RaviShastriOfc @imVkohli
Well this isn’t just his question.. Many greats of the game from Ricky Ponting to Brian Lara have criticized the decision. We wait to see if Virat and Ravi respond to Rishi ji’s question or whether they keep it aside in order to avoid any prospective controversy ahead of the mega tournament.
