Rishi Kapoor and his Anger Issues
Rishi Kapoor is a bit of a short-circuit type of person. As in, he has a temper. There’s no guarantee when or where, he can just snap at any given moment. It’s almost similar to an enraged/out of control animal, except he’s an old man with emotions that can be controlled. There’s Rishi Kapoor and then, there’s Jaya Bachchan. At least, Jaya does not abuse like Rishi does. Also, we all know the reason or rather, the root of Jaya’s bitterness and anger issues so it’s understandable a little.
But, what is the deal with Rishi?
Many of you must have heard by now what happened between Salman Khan and Rishi Kapoor. We meant to write this weeks ago when it happened, but never got to it. Now since Salman has given an answer on what he thinks of Rishi, we can finally report it because it makes this whole thing even more interesting.
Let’s just first say that this incident was not reported by all websites. It was really strange because something like this usually gets blown out of proportion, like the fight between SRK and Salman. We saw the news on DNA and subsequently the same week,On DNA, they didn’t even bother to give a proper title, which could have generated lots of clicks by their readers.
What Happened between Salman and Rishi at Sonam’s Wedding?
According to DNA, here’s what happened that night:
Bharathi S. Pradhan has the insider version that makes Rishi sounds like a sour old
grape man and whatever is the opposite of being a gentleman:
First things first, Rishi Kapoor doesn’t sound like a man who should be let out of the house. We don’t know why they feel confident to let him roam around without someone to watch over him because you never know when he can go like this at anyone:
When we were looking for these articles, we came upon this one:
Back to the Bharathi S. Pradhan. It seems that she edited and modified her content because when it was first published, she criticised Neetu Singh for just standing there and doing nothing while Rishi was yelling at Seema Khan. Now, that part is not there anymore. It’s strange! Don’t worry, we will you what happened. She originally wrote that Neetu was shocked and didn’t do anything when she should have at least stopped her husband from insulting someone who did nothing wrong. It was only the next day that she picked up the phone and apologised to Seema and Sohail Khan. We are very sure that the original article had an angry undertone to it and part of it, she blamed Neetu for letting Rishi behave this way.
While reading it that day, we were reminded of how Beyonce stood in one corner in the elevator while her sister and her cheating husband were busy karate-ing each other. Do you remember that epic scene?
It could be Neetu gets frozen when things like this happen. It’s not the first time her husband has behaved this way. It’s like abusing people should be his profession or something. He does not spare anyone and he even attacks on Social Media through his Twitter account. You imagine, he checks out what other people say and if he doesn’t like it, he follows them and proceeds to abuse them through a direct message, then he unfollows them. That’s an art in itself!
At this point, Neetu should just throw away all the alcohol bottles and just burn that internet pole outside her house. Removing the internet line at home won’t help because he can put it back. Drunk people can even repair internet line wires! So to be safe, just burn the whole thing down and then, claim it was lightning that did it!
That said, in what way did Rishi want Salman to greet him? Bow down to him and sing his praises for being the reason why Raymond is on this earth? Does Rishi live in Lalaland or what? How can he expect after all that has happened Salman would graciously come and hug him? After all that has happened? Now, we are also guessing that Salman might have had a grudge against Rishi and Neetu for treating Katrina like trash. It is possible because Salman’s family have been nothing, but nice to Kat while Ranbir’s family treated her like sh!t.
Rishi himself doesn’t have respect for others, except for Raj Kapoor, how can he expect others to respect him? If he had guts as big as his body, he would have gone and talk to Salman instead of verbally attacking a woman.
So now that Salman Khan has been promoting his upcoming film ‘Race 3’, he slyly gave his comments on what he thought of Rishi Kapoor. Bear in mind, he wasn’t directly asked about but journalists understood he was talking about Rishi Kapoor.
In a way, Salman is right. If you don’t already know, Rishi’s wife and daughter are big fans of Salman. Salman danced at Riddhima’s wedding and Riddhima also attended a family event at Salman’s house some time back when Kat was still with Ranbir. On his part, Salman never abused or harassed any woman from Rishi’s family. What Rishi did was an act of cowardice and he should apologise to Seema. Till now, no apology has been issued because if there was one, you would have heard about it.
We are guessing in the Kapoor home, they must all be frustrated. While mother and sister are
trying to fake it as much as they can doing everything they can to help Ranbir’s career, Rishi is doing everything he can to piss off more people.
Actually, to be fair, the Salman-problem was because of Ranbir himself so we can’t blame Rishi alone for this. Let’s see now if Rishi dares to reply to Salman or will he be asked to shut up by his family members and Kebab Jo?
How did Rishi end up so bitter like this?
We have been wondering for some time now, how did Rishi Kapoor end up like this? His behaviour is that of a spoilt brat. It’s appalling how he keeps doing the same thing over and over again, just with different people. Snapping at fans is acceptable when you are tired or are in the middle of some precious family time, but to just randomly snap at someone?
What is the deal with him? Why is he so angry all the time? What went wrong with him? Soooo many questions!
These are what we have been wondering because blaming him is useless now, he is not going to change. It is really puzzling because he has been an alcoholic for decades now. We remember our aunt told us the story about how she met him for the first time. She has been a big Rishi Kapoor fan since ‘Bobby’ came out, as were many other young girls at that time, including our old lady. She was working in an airline company long time back and she said that she was shocked at the sight of her favourite actor. He was so drunk that he had to be escorted out of the plane by his wife and kids. At that time, his kids were teenagers. She said that she couldn’t believe the actor, who was known for romance onscreen, appeared like such a dishevelled drunkard.
We decided to dig a little deeper to figure this out. You can’t say it’s because the whole Kapoor family consists of alcoholics, that’s why he too is an alcoholic. Maybe he likes to drink like his father because they can both afford to buy good quality liquor. Either way, you don’t inherit alcohol behaviour – it’s not in your genes!
Anyways, here are a couple of interesting things that we came across:
Rishi, in his memoir, said that he suffered from depression when Neetu was pregnant with Riddhima. Here’s an excerpt:
This is a little confusing because we thought he was talking about the time he was accused of domestic violence in the 90s. Neetu called the cops and told them that her husband was beating her and that she was scared. So how come he got over the depression when he still treated her badly for years after?
Raj Kapoor drank recklessly, only Black Label, and all his three sons have been devastated by alcohol. Shammi Kapoor describes it as the “family curse”. At least one Kapoor used to get physical with his wife while in an alcoholic stupor and the police had to be called. The Kapoor men loved food, women and whisky, not necessarily in that order. All of them turned obese and some diabetic.
The Kapoor weakness for alcohol and food, and the subsequent tendency towards corpulence, are discussed (“I learnt a lot about food when I became a part of this family,” quips Neetu Singh during the book discussion) – as are individual tics like Raj Kapoor’s faux-humility (he would walk into a room full of his admirers, bent forward, hands folded, saying “Mujhe Raj Kapoor kehte hain”) and Rishi Kapoor’s latter-day abusiveness towards his wife and children.
Is it The Blissful Torture of Unrequited Love?
He mentioned that he was in love with someone else before Neetu and was quite serious about her.
This is where it gets a little confusing. He mentioned earlier that the girl broke up with him because of the fake gossips going around about Dimple and him after ‘Bobby’. He said that there was nothing going on, but then he contradicts himself when he was telling the story on how Neetu felt threaten by Dimple in ‘Saagar’.
By the way, Dimple in ‘Saagar’ was hot! It was definitely a hot comeback for the mother of two.
Was he bitter because his career? That is not possible since he was and is the only working actor among his siblings and probably among all the Kapoors. He has been regularly working since his debut as a lead hero or second hero. It was only in the late 90s or early 2000s that he started those father roles. We remember Rakesh Roshan offered him the role of Hrithik Roshan‘s dad in ‘Koi Mil Gaya’ and Rishi refused by saying he does not want to play daddy roles yet. Probably the first time he played a father onscreen was in ‘Kuch Khatti Kuch Meethi’. He was the father of two Kajols in the film. He managed to buy his own bungalow – a home for his family.
In the book she talks about how difficult it is for each succeeding generation of the family to carve a distinct niche for themselves – one of the reasons why the careers of Raj’s sons Randhir and Rajeev fell by the wayside. “I had plenty of luggage to carry,” adds a solemn Rishi at the launch. “I was always being gauged by my father’s or my uncles’ success.”
His brother, Randhir Kapoor, became an alcoholic when Karishma and Kareena were very young. That was because his career was going nowhere. So what is Rishi’s excuse? He started putting on weight and drinking more. If this happened in today’s time, he would be kicked out.
What is puzzling is that journalists and the media don’t call him out on his behaviour anymore. They are all silent on this. They keep giving him importance. Why? They used to openly do talk about his abusive behaviour, like they did in the article below:
Recently, Indian personalities on Twitter blasted Rishi for his abusive behaviour but that didn’t change anything.
At this point, he is like the Indian Trump. You all know how we look at Trump? He’s a spoilt child, who does what he wants and says what he wants, and this is exactly what Rishi Kapoor seems to be! Imagine if Rishi was India’s President? He would be tweeting exactly like Trump has been tweeting with no care for protocols!
Speaking of Trump, do you remember Alec Baldwin? He had and still has major anger issues. From calling his young daughter a pig to creating problems on the sets of his shows, people over there did not let things slide. They sacked him. He was jobless for a while before being given a chance to play Trump on ‘Saturday Night Live’. But, he had his own show taken from him due to his angry behaviour. At least, they took action over there. Here?
Before we end, we have to mention these two theories:
Is he bitter because of what his son claimed ruined his marriage? You know that thing about Neetu being…..? Those, who follow gossips know what we are talking about.
Is he bitter because of this?
This reminds us of the time Ranbir said on KWK that his dad is happy he is dating, as long as it’s with girls!
Whatever it is, he sure looks like one unhappy and grumpy man! It’s sad for such a handsome man on the outside to be so ugly on the inside!
