Nepotism in Bollywood was a burning topic, but from yesterday it has become dynasty. Congress Vice President, Rahul Gandhi speaking at the University of California, Berkley made some derogatory remarks on dynasty, mentioning few big personalities of India. Rahul Gandhi has been butt of jokes in past as well but this time he is caught by one of the famous veteran actors of Bollywood.
During the question answer session, responding to a query, that there was a perception that the congress was associated with dynastic politics, Rahul said, “Most of the country runs like this. So, don’t go after me. Akhilesh Yadav is a dynast, Mr Stalin (DMK supremo M Karunanidhi’s son) is a dynast, Mr (Prem Kumar) Dhumal’s son (Anurag Thakur of the BJP) is a dynast. Even Mr Abhishek Bachchan is a dynast, also Mr Ambani.” And further added, “That’s what happens in India and just the way India runs. The real question is if that person is a capable, sensitive person.”
This remark didn’t go well to people across the country. One of the most vocal and outspoken Bollywood celebrity on twitter, Rishi Kapoor, gave Rahul Gandhi a lesson that he will never forget. He mentioned how kapoor family has contributed to bollywood industry for 90 years that is earned by hard work and asked Rahul Gandhi to stop making remarks on dynasty.
Here's what Rishi Kaoor said to Rahul Gandhi.
The bigger question is who gave, Rahul Gandhi, the right to represent well established Indian personalities to connect them to dynasty? Making such remark while representing India in abroad, is something, which is not acceptable.
