Rishi Kapoor on being trolled on social media

Rishi Kapoor always speaks his mind. He has been vocal about many issues either at events or on his Twitter handle. Due to this, Rishi Kapoor has been trolled on social media.

Talking about never letting people to judge on whatever he wishes to tweet, Rishi Kapoor said to a leading Indian daily, “Main woh karunga, woh likhunga jo mera mann chahega (I will do and say and write whatever my heart tells me to do). I have the freedom of expression. This is a democracy, and I can say what I want to and what I feel.”

Adding further, he said, “As long as I am not offending someone personally, or I am not agitating against anything that’s a delicate matter, I don’t think that anyone should have a problem with what I say.”

Speaking about his argument with people on Twitter, Rishi Kapoor said, “Who cares! Do you think I give a damn to these trolls or what they say? These so-called trolls feel very important if you [any celebrity] react or respond to their tweet. So, I don’t let them have that moment of joy. Everything is okay but the moment you abuse me, or you offend me, I would do nothing but simply block you. That means you can no longer follow me or see what I am doing. Either you create a new account, start tweeting and then follow me again. So, you lose me for that period .”

Talking about blocking 5000 people from his Twitter account, he said, “Isne koi gadbad ki, ya meri family ke bare main kuch kaha ya kuch bhi galat cheez likhi (if anyone dares to take a dig at my family members or write anything mean on my Twitter timeline), I will block him/her. I don’t want this kind of bad influence on my Twitter timeline. I believe that one bad fish spoils the other lot as well, and since I don’t want this to go on, it’s easier for me to block that person, and then they don’t get to talk to me.”
