'Baap ka maal' tweet: Congress workers protest outside actor Rishi Kapoor's house

Mumbai: Congress workers on Wednesday protested outside the house of actor Rishi Kapoor in suburban Bandra in Mumbai for attacking the Nehru-Gandhi family.

They also pelted stones and shouted slogans against the actor.

In a series of tweets, Kapoor attacked the practice of naming all the major assets of the country after the Gandhi family members during the Congress rule.

The 63-year-old veteran actor said that names of the prominent places should be changed after those who worked for the welfare of the country.

Following are his tweets:

Reacting to the actor's tweets, Anupam Kher said, "Rishi Kapoor ji has thought about it and I am sure a lot of people think about a lot of things that they put on social networking sites. It's genuine thought. It is not necessarily against the particular family," as per PTI.

On the other hand, filmmaker and censor board member Ashoke Pandit tweeted:

Meanwhile, the NCP also took strong objection to Kapoor's tweets.

However, the BJP latched on to Kapoor's attack on the Nehru-Gandhi family with its national secretary Shrikant Sharma saying only one family was "glorified" after independence while million others who sacrificed their lives for the country were "forgotten".
