The very outspoken Rishi Kapoor, who is known for grabbing eyeballs of the audience, has yet again stormed the internet. This time, the veteran actor’s tweet on India and Pakistan relationship is making huge headlines.
In the wake of Pakistan slamming death penalty on former Indian Navy Officer Kulbhushan Yadav for allegedly being a spy, the actor spoke out against it on Twitter and received backlash for the same, especially from Pakistani Twitter accounts.
“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!”, tweeted Rishi Kapoor.

No sooner did the actor posted the tweet, a Pakistani woman started to pour in heaps of hate messages. Later, other Pakistanis also became a part of the fight and lashed out at Rishi.
The Kapoor and Sons actor is never afraid to get back at haters and so, he spotted each one of the haters and gave, as some would say, befitting replies.
Have a look at the entire conversation
Mind your language young lady! Surely your parents did not teach you to speak to elders this way? https://t.co/btm5Kn8fQj— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) April 10, 2017
My parents taught me very well sir, but this morality lecture doesnt justify your ignorant stance. Look how other countries treat spies :) https://t.co/OJ9tCmDKqd— Fariha (@Fay_Alif) April 10, 2017
I was talking about your language not morality. Perhaps that's the way you address elders there https://t.co/augGKGwTfK

A second woman who posted an abusive message to Rishi Kapoor was described by him as "Another well educated girl." He then complained about those who "make tweets unavailable when exposed" - he probably can't see the offending tweets now because he's blocked what he calls 'trollers and abusers.'
These girls abuse and when exposed they make their tweets unavailable. Such is their conviction lol— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) April 10, 2017
A third user who tweeted to him saying "There are some people like you and me on both sides who want peace and, inshallah, we will get one day" received an approving response from the actor:
Atta girl!This should be the spirit! An eye for an eye will only make the world blind! Build bridges,not walls! https://t.co/TShXRuMxcC— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) April 10, 2017
Singer Abhijeet, known for stirring up controversies with his remarks, commented on Twitter: "Hang every Pakistani in India by a tree at sight."
He went on to request that Jadhav be saved from death sentence.
Abhijeet then lashed out at the ‘Khans’ of the industry and tweeted: Saare Khans chup kyu ho (Why are all the Khans silent?)
