Rishi Kapoor Blasts Rahul Gandhi Over 'Dynasty Politics' Comment

Share

"Akhilesh (Yadav son of Mulayam Singh Yadav of the Samajwadi Party), (M.K.) Stalin (son of M. Karunanidhi in DMK), Abhishek Bachchan (son of Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan) - are all examples of dynastic legacy, also (Mukesh and Anil) Ambani (son of Dhirubhai Ambani), that's how the entire country is running", Gandhi had said. In an interaction with the students of California University, Rahul said India is run by dynasties.

Most of the Bollywood celebrities believe in keeping their thoughts to themselves instead of winding up in another controversy but one actor who has never shied away from openly voicing his views on socio-political issues has once again blasted a politician for his irrelevant comments. He said that even though five generations of the family had worked in Bollywood, Kapoor family members were still chosen by the public on basis of merit. In a series of tweets, Rishi slammed Rahul, "Rahul Gandhi.In the 106 years of Indian cinema of India, Kapoor's contribution is 90 years". Gandhi has sparked this row, all by his own, on Tuesday, as he took a jibe at those who accused him of reaping the benefits of " dynasty politics". "By God's grace we are in 4 generations".

I can act better than you Mr. Chintu, but I don't have a father like legendary actor RK grandfather like Prithviraj Kapoor saheb. Besides all others. You see otherwise.

Turkey Set To Buy Russian Missile Defence System
Hurriyet newspaper quoted Erdogan on Tuesday as telling a group of reporters that signatures have been put on accords and that Turkey has made a down payment on the surface-to-air defense systems.

He wrote, "Change Gandhi family assets named by Congress.Bandra/Worli Sea Link to Lata Mangeshkar or JRD Tata link road". Then it's your genetic fault you don't have what I have!

Rahul Gandhi was recently at Berkeley University, USA and at a press conference he spoke about nepotism in politics. Bhartiya Janta Party was quick to call Rahul Gandhi a "failed dynast".

Rahul Gandhi's strong defence of being a political dynast and seeming comfort with what he earlier saw as an insinuation marks a shift in his position on the issue that rivals have used to beat him with for over a decade.
