Ranbir Kapoor and Rishi Kapoor faced the ire of many journalists after a shocking video showing Rishi and Randhir misbehaving with the media personnel went viral on the Internet. The video was captured during the Ganpati visarjan at RK Studios.
Rishi expressed his displeasure about the whole fiasco and claimed that it was wrong on the media’s part to make this a big issue without asking them for any clarification. In the video, we can see a journalist getting hit right at the end, when a bodyguard pushes and drops him on the floor.
The journalist, Sumit Sharma from India TV finally broke his silence and explained what actually happened that day.
“I was going towards Ranbir with my cameraman to take his byte, but he sat in the car and left. The camera wire got stuck in my foot and I fell down on my own. The video has been cleverly edited because Ranbir never pushed or hit me. In fact, no one checked with me before carrying that video. I have no malice against Rishiji, Randhirji or Ranbir. There were a lot of us walk around close to Rishiji and he didn’t ask us to move aside or push us… I was there during the whole Ganpati procession that day… Given all the practical conditions – the heavy rains, the crowd going berserk, the Kapoor family did not target or misbehave with any media persons.”
Hopefully this puts an end to all such speculations and reports.
In an interview to Pinkvilla, Rishi 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.”
