Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor (65) has once again made headlines for all the wrong reasons. Rishi’s short-temper has made him do things which have aggravated many others and if you remember, the “Kapoor & Sons” actor has a history of getting trolled on social media networks for his antics.
Rishi Kapoor was in Delhi for attending the launch event of a book written on his father late Raj Kapoor; the book is authored by Rishi’s sister Ritu Nanda.
During the event, he insulted three journalists who were there to attend the event and they were invited by the publisher. In fact, one of the journalists was from IANS. As the actor was coming out of the washroom, he saw three of them and asked, “Aap log kaun hain (Who are you guys?)” The journalists showed him their ID cards and the actor walked mumbling, “Muft ki daru”.
Thank you Delhi for your love and respect for Raj Kapoor. pic.twitter.com/e3s8r57rft

As per the report, personal security person of Rishi Kapoor came and told these journalists to leave. He said,
“Mr. Kapoor doesn’t want you guys here, please leave.”
When the associate of the publisher came to know about the incident, he asked the security in-charge to interfere in the matter. The hotel security personnel stated,
“You know how Rishi Kapoor is. He has created a scene at our hotel twice in the past.”
Though publisher apologised the journalists and requested them to return, the journalists refused and left the venue.
Rishi Kapoor has not responded on the matter till now.
The event was also attended by Randhir Kapoor, Rajiv Kapoor, Rima Jain, Neetu Kapoor and Riddhima Kapoor Sahni.
Twitter slammed the actor for his behaviour. Check out some comments:

Absolutely appalling behavior at Raj Kapoor book launch. "he walked off, muttering "muft ki daru…". His personal security arrived and asked the three journalists to accompany them out of the hall." https://t.co/DOsKCLJ0QV
