Veteran Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor is no stranger to sparking controversy on Twitter. But when he failed to recognise a clip from one of his own films and his female co-star dancing beside him, Twitterati began mocking the Mulk actor.
It all started when a Twitter user shared a GIF of Kapoor dancing from his film Kaun Sachcha Kaun Jhootha song ‘Dil Se Judi Dil’. Kapoor shared the GIF and 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

Twitterati were quick to remind the actor not just about the film but also the about the fact that it was Sridevi next to him. Many couldn’t believe he failed to recognise his co-star of films like Nagin and Chandni, while others wondered if he was joking. While some fans came to his rescue and said the quality of the clip was really bad, others said the awful choreography may have prompted him to forget it.
This is Sridevi. pic.twitter.com/ywh2wc1vim

Tbh I really can’t stand Rishi Kapoor off-screen & I’m not sure if he’s being genuine or not I couldn’t recognise Sridevi either in the GIF. https://t.co/pvIng3Sq8C

You acted in 5 Hindi films with Indian cinema’s biggest female superstar, our #Sridevi ma’am. Yet, you were sooo blind to recognize her from 1996 #Kaunsachakaunjhoota film song clip wherein you were trying hard to dance with her in Goa. Shame!. https://t.co/DOnoI1Y3bB

There’s no need to get so hostile guys. In most probability he genuinely couldn’t recall.
