Rishi Kapoor Ko Gussa Kyun Aata Hai?People are talking about how Rishi Kapoor is right in pointing out that most stars of this generation are only interested in having a good time and are disrespectful in some ways towards elders in the industry. The immediate reason for Kapoors ire is the near total absence of young actors at Vinod Khannas funeral. Khanna was active in films till recently. He had acted in the hugely successful Dabbang with Salman Khan and Sonu Sood. There were other films too where actors of this generation had acted with him. Yet, they chose to absent themselves from the funeral, expressing their grief on Twitter instead.
People say that Rishi Kapoor is also right in pointing out that the young brigade (he calls them chamchas) were out in full force at Priyanka Chopras bash just a night earlier. People say that since high profile parties mean exposure on Page 3 and immense scope for networking, this generation never misses them if thrown by any A-grader like Priyanka. But people are also saying that Twitter cannot replace physical presence and this generation is guilty of disrespect in not attending the funeral, especially when the film industry is like a close-knit family.
Some critics took umbrage at the fact that Rishis young son, Ranbir, was also not present. But they did so before verifying the facts. Kapoor was quick to point out that his wife Neetu and Ranbir were out of the country. Amitabh Bachchan, with whom Vinod Khanna starred in some memorable films, was present with son Abhishek. People are saying that the this generation stars should neither dismiss Rishi Kapoors tirade as outpourings of a demented mind nor should they ignore it. Rather, they should introspect and ensure that they are more respectful towards seniors. Kapoor has called their behavior shameful but the more apt word is disgusting.
