If sources close to the Kapoor family are to be believed, then Rishi Kapoor, who calls a spade a spade, is not taking recent incidents lying down.
The chaos caused at the Ganpati visarjan and the controversy that evolved out of it has led to a lot of disturbance between the Kapoor family, media and fans. A video that surfaced online recently showcased the Kapoors pushing reporters, and there were claims that Ranbir Kapoor pushed a reporter after he got into a car. However, the reporter in question told us that’s not what happened, and that the video was edited to look like that.
A source close to the Kapoor family revealed that Rishi Kapoor will be consulting his lawyers on Monday. As he feels that unnecessarily Ranbir has been targeted.
Rishi Kapoor did push some people as they were coming in the way of the procession and it was raining very heavily and he has accepted that also, but the video has been tampered with and some footage in between has been edited. The journalist was not hit by Ranbir, he fell on his own. But the video shows as if he was pushed. So he will be consulting his lawyers on Monday and then taking a call.
Identified the channel and the reporter who deliberately maligned us. Media helped. Lawyers being consulted. Thank you who ever stood by us
