Recently, Kapoors have made an appearance at the RK Ganpati Visarjan program. Ranbir also attended the family function with senior Kapoors. However, due to a bad weather and the crowd, things went wrong for the Kapoor family.
Apparently, a video of the Kapoors lashing out at the media is storming internet. However, Rishi Kapoor spoke exclusively to stating that he was misinterpreted by the public and media.
I feel it is very unfair, what the news channels have shared everywhere. First of all we have no PR. We never invite anybody. You yourself come to my Ganpati. However, we give ample time to the press to do all what you have to do, in front of the Ganpati murthy. We do this Ganpati not for publicity but have been doing it for the past 64 yrs. My grandfather started this tradition. 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.
Furthermore, he added,
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.
Because Ranbir was also there everybody got so excited. I don’t blame them, but they misbehaved with me. If I have indeed slapped them why don’t you show the clip of me slapping? I was behaving like the Mumbai police, trying to monitor the situation. They have misinterpreted it that I misbehaved with the media! You come because you know we are important and you are giving me bull** saying that I have hit you? They say Ranbir hit them, Ranbir would not hit a fly, how would he hit them?
Here’s a video-
