Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor, who passed away at the age of 67 earlier today, was known as much for his evergreen roles and jovial nature as he was known, in recent times, for his Twitter-happy personality.
Kapoor's opinions on a wide array of things and people across spectrums — sports, politics, films, songs, colleagues from the Bollywood industry— often made their way into 140 and 280 characters. And, in turn, they made into great headlines.Ever since he joined Twitter in 2010, Kapoor has kept us entertained by simply speaking his mind. For instance, as India went into a national lockdown and stared at an ongoing epidemic, Kapoor appealed for the government to open licensed liquor stores "for sometime in the evening".
Think. Government should for sometime in the evening open all licensed liquor stores. Don’t get me wrong. Man will be at home only what with all this depression, uncertainty around. Cops,doctors,civilians etc... need some release. Black mein to sell ho hi raha hai. ( cont. 2)

Along with a quirky cat, Kapoor also had a curt message to go along: "Another thing. I am Not and repeat NOT Ranbirs Post Box that you can drop messages or post them. Thank you,I remain yours truly-Rishi Kapoor (sic)."

I am angry. Why do you equate food with religion?? I am a beef eating Hindu. Does that mean I am less God fearing then a non eater? Think!!
