Bollywood veteran deletes 'controversial' tweet

Thursday, January 25, 2018 • Telugu Comments

Yesteryear hero Rishi Kapoor on Thursday didn't dare to stand by his own joke. Well, in the times of ultra-sensitive mobs attacking school buses and malls, he thought it would be unwise to use 'Johar' as a pun for 'Jauhar'.

Earlier in the day, this is what the elderly Kapoor said on Twitter: "Ranveer Singh has announced that if Karni Sena tries to stop the release of 'Padmaavat', he will do Johar." The actor attached a pic in which Ranveer is about to kiss Karan Johar in a jocular manner.

'Padmaavat', directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, and starring Ranveer, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor, has hit the screens amid escalating tensions.
