Rishi Kapoor, apart from being a son of a famous father and the father of a famous son (which his Twitter bio claims), is also an avid ‘tweet’er. So much so, that he keeps taking breaks from tweeting every now and then to rejuvenate himself.

Yesterday, only he talked about taking a sabbatical from the microblogging site (Read: Rishi Kapoor plans a sabbatical from Twitter) and today he has raised a very important question. Why are the celebs on their phones always? He tweeted:

They must be on Twitter only, we guess. However, this does, certainly, tell us Rishi Kapoor has changed his mind of taking a break from Twitter and is here to stay. He also questioned about the Indians’ habit of smoking and procreating.

Though the message and intentions behind these tweets must be good enough, Rishi Kapoor has passed them on in his own quirky manner. The veteran actor has been on a Tweeting spree to keep his fans and followers posted about not only his professional and personal lives, but the society as well. Hence, one can see him tweeting on various topics, ranging from Smriti Irani to beef ban.

He had tweeted about women emancipation too, but in a way that invited wrath of the people rather than appreciation.

But he was misinterpreted.

Then Rishi Kapoor even decided to be a food reviewer.

But he is going nowhere as he will be soon seen in ‘All is Well’ co-starring Abhishek Bachchan and Asin. ‘All is Well’ was also supposed to feature actress and HRD minister Smriti Irani, but she backed off the project due to date problems. But Rishi Kapoor didn’t like this.

These kind of tweets invite some cuss words along with the wrath, and Rishi Kapoor doesn’t approve of this. He was once quated as saying, “All the jokes are on me, but even if they don’t like something, they can tell me politely, like ‘listen, I didn’t understand your opinion and didn’t like it’. Why do they have to be rude? I’ve blocked some 300-400 users on my account as they were abusive and used cuss words.”

It was earlier reported that his son, Ranbir Kapoor had asked his parents to keep a check on social media posts.

One might doubt Rishi Kapoor’s intentions behind the incessant tweets, we think, as he himself says, he is just ‘misinterpreted, misunderstood and misconstrued’.
