Rishi Kapoor has often grabbed attention on social media for the wrong reasons. And trolling has been a big part of it. The actor often posts things which don’t go well with people and he ends up falling in trouble. Unlike his other goof-ups on Twitter that draws many reactions from the users, this time, the users got more irritated or angry as his latest tweet involved late legendary actress Sridevi.
Rishi Kapoor shared a GIF image of one of his dances with Sridevi from their film Kaun Sachcha Kaun Jhootha that released in 1997. Along with the post, he wrote “what film is this? And I cannot recognise the actress with me.”
What film is this? And I cannot recognise the actress with me! https://t.co/NpZlqurrq8

Twitteratis were surprised as the Mulk actor couldn’t identify that it was Sridevi, with whom he has featured in over 10 films like ‘Nagina’ and ‘Chandni’. These two movies were the on-screen couple’s biggest hits and helped them gain a stronger foothold in the industry. Some people even thought he was joking. Rishi received quite a bit of flak from the actress’ fans wherein they termed that the veteran actor should lower his alcohol consumption.
Check out the reactions:
Nobody would have recognised you if she had not worked with you in Nagina and Chandni.

Earlier this year, in an interview to Hindustan Times after Sridevi’s death, Rishi Kapoor had remembered the actress by sharing a memory from the shoot of the same film. “I have lovely memories of her as an actor and a person. When she was carrying her first child, Boney Kapoor had come to meet her on the set of our film Kaun Sachha Kaun Jootha (1997),” the actor had said.
On the work front, Rishi’s latest released Mulk has garnered him a lot of critical acclaim. The movie also stars Taapsee Pannu and Prateik Babbar in lead roles.
