We saw the Kapoors at the RK Ganpati Visarjan program. Ranbir accompanied the senior Kapoors as they set out to carry on the 60 year old tradition started by their late grandfather. However, unfortunately for the Kapoors, the weather and the huge crowd collected there played spoilsport to all the fun and festivities. 

A video of the Kapoors allegedly lashing out at the media is making the rounds. However, Rishi Kapoor spoke exclusively to Pinkvilla saying that it was not he who misbehaved with the media but it in fact was the other way round. 

The senior Kapoor said, "I feel it is very unfair, what the news channels have shared everywhere. First of all we have no PR. We never invite anybody. You yourself come to my Ganpati. However, we give ample time to the press to do all what you have to do, in front of the Ganpati murthy. We do this Ganpati not for publicity but have been doing it for the past 64 yrs. My grandfather started this tradition. There have always been thousands and thousands of people coming to see this Ganpati of RK. They came to see Ganpati, not us. Over 64 yrs they have been coming to see the immersion. When the Ganpati leaves RK studio, everybody is excited."

He added, "However, this evening there was heavy rainfall. There were so many people and so much media. We have not called them.... It is impossible when there is so much rain and public (to not lose your temper). When we are respecting God, these small time journalists poke the damn camera on your face."

He further said, "Because Ranbir was also there everybody got so excited. I don't blame them, but they misbehaved with me. If I have indeed slapped them why don't you show the clip of me slapping? I was behaving like the Mumbai police, trying to monitor the situation. They have misinterpreted it that I misbehaved with the media! You come because you know we are important and you are giving me bull** saying that I have hit you? They say Ranbir hit them, Ranbir would not hit a fly, how would he hit them?"

Well, what do you think of that?


What do these women see in him. I would pick salman to be my husband (if that was a choice in my dream) ;)

Chilli out guys Ranbir didn't hurt anyone

he wouldn't hurt a fly but women. how sad

Ranbir & Rani looked great together in Saawariya..if Rani did Ash role in ADHM, it would be hit!!

Calm down Ho!

i agree that it was rude of rishi k ,,,, but it happens with us smtz es[ecialy when we appear in the crowds,,, we can push and be angry ,,,

Please don't go to vip

Calm down Ho!

Remember what neetu Kapoor said about class? She was hinting at Kat/dp.
Why doesn't she look at her family first.
Pv post plz.

Hahahaha Ranbir now we won't watch ADHM...Sleepless nights!!!

Please don't comment on Ranbir as if katrina and deepika are angels...katrina was dating a man twice her age only because he was successful...and deepika has had tons of affairs...yup raj. Sid please don't compare.ranbir with them and pinkvilla post my comments. U are against Ranbir...why my comments not possted

"We never invite anybody. You yourself come to my Ganpati." "They came to see Ganpati, not us. " "When we are respecting God, these SMALL TIME journalists poke the damn camera on your face." "You come because you know we are important " --- Seriously, this is what happens when you give actors this much importance, they start thinking they are "gods" and that they can do whatever they want. The kapoor clan has totally lost it, their behavior is nothing but those of self entitled rich brats. There should be a ban on everyone of these Kapoor's movies.

Media should go on a strike and stop covering these junkies for some time. They will be right back on track. We are important and others are 'small time'? No remorse whatsoever. POST PV

The video only showed the kapoors hitting them but hid the part where the media misbehaved. For every action there is a reaction. The kapoors didn't just lash at them for no reason . There is two sides for every story we only get the part media wants to show. Ppl here just wanna hate on the kapoors. Keep hating here but this will be forgotten and they will continue there legacy! PV I hardly comment plz post

I am sure he was drunk, so much so that he doesn't remember the kaand!

Before judging the Kapoors, or anyone else for that matter. First, put yourself in their shoes. Think for a second. If you are at a temple trying to do puja and people, or someone...anyone, is constantly trying to poke something in your face. What would you do??? Then only comment here.

Why they invited media?

Ranbir is handsome and calm

The more this clown gets publicity the more I realize how abusive and using he is of the media. He plays chummy when his film is releasing and otherwise is a complete disenchanted and grossly rude person. Take notes on how Ranveer deals with the media: always showering them with love and respect. This clownish flop needs to simmer down and leave the shutterbugs. He so miscalculates how dismally he will be received when we see past his fake attitudes. The father is a liar and the son a smug liar as well.

Ranbir wants a lot of articles wriiten about ranbir bc ranbir has a movie coming out

liars ... video is running on social sites

Ranbir doesnt hurt a fly ...but he hurts katrina, deepika and salman..
he is sacred of flies.. LOl..

katrina deserves it

no1 comment

Pc,angela,avantika, dino moera current gf (dont remember her name) and countless girls.

Guys go and see the video where Rk too slap the media while sitting in the car.

Rofl!! Just saw his video where he is slapping and pushing people!! What a nautanki!!

Damage control for ADHM

oh yeah, Ranbir is like 'Norman Bates'.

Media should impose complete ban on Kapoor family. Without media help his son's almost non existent career will be completely abolished for sure because he is no salman khan or shahrukh khan that media has any reason to chase after.

Prayer done with negative feelings goes in vain!just my opinion!

Cmon guys let's give them a benefit of doubt . It's easy to lose your cool in a crowd and heavy rain . We all have had our moments when there is gazillion of people surrounding you . Any normal human being will snap . Not a fan of Kapoor but just thinking what if I was in that situation . I may reach the same , who knows ?

There is some video of Randhir & Rishi getting all happy slappy with people around them.

These kapoors has done PHD in lying. There is a video proof how rishi shouts and push media person. Like father like son.

rk wouldnt hurt a fly as he is good at hurting humans and girls.

Bang on.

Why is he lying? Just say: 'Yes my brother and I hit the media, but that's because..etc.' Don't insult our intelligence by claiming you've done nothing when we've all seen the footage.

"I was behaving like the Mumbai police, trying to monitor the situation." I literally can't stop laughing. Does anyone else realize how ridiculous this sounds? hahaha So you were behaving violently and beating people for doing their job...but you're allowed to do it because you are "important people." How about some humility and an apoplogy instead of "bull****" excuses. :)

Ranbir didn't do anything yes media is probably favouritising with them because thy are huge personalise but this is being blown out of proportion and media is to blame thy become to much at times I don't blame them for getting annoyed the crowd probably got out of control whilst ranbir was present stop making such a big fuss people after some days this will be forgotten

Why are people judging elderly people? Shouldn't we respect them? Look at the crowd and chaos around them they are getting pushed and shoved... that's a shame, its natural for them to get hyper and feel agitated, also because most parents suffer from health conditions like cholesterol and diabetes and elderly women go through menopause and other health conditions that's why in public transports there are special seats for them, its unfair to subject them to this and then expect apology form them is ridiculous... What would media do if one of them gets a heart attack or collapses because of so much chaos and noise around them. Stop this now.

I just saw the video. Rishi kapoor was clearly hitting the media people. Couldn't see clearly if RK was also misbehaving but most certainly they need to appologise!

I think my Katrina Kaif comment is not being taken as I meant it. I meant she was 'apparently ' rude. And most channels kept blasting her. However there was no evidence of her being rude yet they still blasted her saying she was acting rude without any evidence. However with the kapoors there is even a video showing them being rude and hitting people yet media is hardly passing it around. Why? It's only viral because common people are sending it around. And how the media chooses to pick on Katrina without any proof yet for the kapoor khandan there is no highlight EVEN when there is proof! Media chooses and targets who they want. Pv post please.

why are you even bringing her in here?

He and Randhir were clearly agitated and lost their cool ... Showed it by pushing and shoving ppl .. How can he deny it ? Yes Ranbir didn't hit anyone but Rishi surely did

Kat is no saint gosh ranbir wouldn't do such thts true

Saw the video. Rishi And Randhir Kapoor were way outta line.

But witnesses said Ranbir was the one who pushed the guy

Whether Ranbir was involved or not, Kapoor family should just apologise and get it over with. After years Ranbir came for this festival and then this nonsense happened. Sigh..

Now Kapoor clan is worried and giving clarifications just because Ranbir Beta's next film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is about to release and the video of Kapoors hitting journalists apparently has gone viral. ADHM - the film that he's depending upon majorly to kickstart his falling career once again after few duds. If there was no film coming up for release, Rishi Kapoor, who has time and again misbehaved with people, or has been downright rude to people by yelling and screaming at them, wouldn't have bothered. In the past also Ranbir has misbehaved with journalists by snatching their cameras and stuff. These Kapoors also do these things like abusing and stuff in a drunken state. Yes, completely agree with that pampering male child theory. At least these flops in the junior's career and some real good talent and people taking over hopefully taught them a lesson. Media's also to be blamed for generating hype over actors like Ranbir just because he's a Kapoor.

I really feel sorry for ranbir man. There is another video where he literally looks scared and knows his family is about to do something they only do behind closed doors. He is trying to smile but he is so nervous. he shouldn't be blamed for this!

These stars forget they are stars only because of aam janta. Big egos!!!

No clarification needed...we all have eyes...only those who are blinded by Bollywood Celebs will believe him.

I believe you rishi that ranbir wouldn't hurt a fly. It's true. But you guys around him are bad influences. I'm surprised he is so calm and detached when coming from this family

There were news Doing the rounds that Katrina Kaif was rude with media yesterday. However no evidence and no video to prove it. And now there is a video showing them hitting and most channels are not even showing it and media not publishing the video. Most news channels are making it like they were doing pooja. In fact they are hiding it. Why? Shows the difference in the way media chooses people and targets people. Pv please post!

'Small time journalists' and 'we are important' a lil Ahhmmmm..... moments for me as well... but let's be practical. Let's think about our own parents how can we judge elderly people? Fathers and mothers are generally senior citizens with problems like cholesterol, diabetes, menopause etc etc.... They should be respected, look at the chaos, they must be getting hyper and suffocated having said that he is much better than my own Dad who is blissfully dumb and naive that I don't know whether to cry or laugh..
Imagine if press was covering him I'd be face palmed in my grave.

Ranbir didn't do anything the crowd was bloody out of control I dnt blame them for getting irritated bloody media really does know how to annoy celebrities if his defending his son there is nothing wrong in that just coz thy are celebs dsnt mean thy can get angry media shud know better risho didn't slap anyone gosh people are so twisted


Oh please the video is very clear you hit them. It doesn't matter how many cameras they poked in your face it is not okay to hit people

see this is the problem with Indian parents, over pampering "male" child. Gosh..they are the very reason why India is still a third world country..

Third World does not mean Third Class. It means countries that did not align with NATO or communist countries during the cold war.
