Yesterday, news came in that Rishi Kapoor and Randhir Kapoor assaulted journalists while on their way to the Ganpati Visarjan. The misbehaviour hasn’t gone down very well with the public and in an interview with Pinkvilla, Rishi Kapoor clarified his stand.

He said:

I feel it is very unfair, what the news channels have shared everywhere. First of all we have no PR. We never invite anybody. You yourself come to my Ganpati. However, we give ample time to the press to do all what you have to do, in front of the Ganpati murthy. We do this Ganpati not for publicity but have been doing it for the past 64 yrs. My grandfather started this tradition. There have always been thousands and thousands of people coming to see this Ganpati of RK. They came to see Ganpati, not us. Over 64 yrs they have been coming to see the immersion. When the Ganpati leaves RK studio, everybody is excited.

About him misbehaving with the journalists, he said:

This evening there was heavy rainfall. There were so many people and so much media. We have not called them. It is impossible when there is so much rain and public (to not lose your temper). When we are respecting God, these small time journalists poke the damn camera on your face.

Certain sections of the media have reportedly said that Ranbir also hit them, to which he said:

Because Ranbir was also there everybody got so excited. I don’t blame them, but they misbehaved with me. If I have indeed slapped them why don’t you show the clip of me slapping? I was behaving like the Mumbai police, trying to monitor the situation. They have misinterpreted it that I misbehaved with the media! You come because you know we are important and you are giving me bull**** saying that I have hit you? They say Ranbir hit them, Ranbir would not hit a fly, how would he hit them?”

What do you think?
