The media was in for a shock when they were allegedly shoved, pushed and even slapped during the Kapoor family’s Ganesh visarjan in Chembur, Mumbai, on Thursday. Rishi Kapoor and Randhir Kapoor lost their cool and misbehaved with mediapersons and even slapped some.
The visarjan procession started around 1.30 pm and Rishi, Randhir and Ranbir Kapoor were seen walking for almost four kms to immerse the idol. An eyewitness says the long walk caused absolute mayhem with people thronging and climbing over barricades to catch a glimpse of the stars.
To make matters worse, there were other people out with Ganpati idols on road for visarjan. Owing to the presence of the celebs, a monstrous crowd had gathered. All hell broke loose when Ranbir started playing the cymbals. It was a shot that media personnel tried to capture and Rishi Kapoor reportedly got angry. He is believed to have turned around and allegedly slapped a cameraman. It is also alleged that Rishi slapped a reporter as well.
